|From front to rear we have the infantry regiments Calabria, Ultona (Irish) and Napoli (Italian).|
As the keen eyed reader will have spotted I have made a change from the basing convention I've used in the past for my SYW collection for these troops. The unit frontage remains the same but I've increased the base depth to accommodate drummers, file closers and spare officers/NCOs. This is an idea pinched off Jim Purkey and it looks good imho.
To follow very soon are the regiments Reina, Dunnant (Swiss), and the aforementioned Guardias. There are also two regiments of Spanish horse in need of standards before they can be added to the force. Then all I will need are some artillery and a few command stands.
Now, the Spanish didn’t do much in the Seven Years War apart from an attempted invasion of Portugal, so these troops are destined to fight in the Wars of the Polish and/or Austrian Succession, alongside my small Duchy of Modena army. As it happens my embryonic French army is also being mobilised to campaign in the War of the Polish Succession even though they will no doubt see action in the WAS and SYW as well.
