Voluntarios de Espana

Another unit from Eagle Miniatures, I like these Spanish Chasseurs as they add a bit more colour to my Talavera project:

As with the Hussars and Dragoons, I have reversed the trumpeter and put him on a grey horse.

There is certainly enough variety of colour in the Spanish cavalry to avoid the potential for monotony. As with Eagle's Spanish Hussars, these are very finely detailed figures and also represent part of their (as I understand it) reworked range.

The tops of the shakos are not actually blue, but caught a bit of the early morning sun from somewhere.

All things considered, nicely proportioned figures and I was pleased to add them to Talavera project.


  1. Another impressive unit!

    Keep 'em coming! :-)

  2. Just a suggestion - consider disabling the darned captych's - you know, those annoying strings of letters and numbers you have to enter to "prove you're not a robot".


    1. Thanks for the encouragement and the suggestion Peter, I didn't even know it had been activated. Hopefully I have now successfully turned it off.
