Spanish Grenadier Companies


Here are the Grenadiers appropriate to the two regiments painted last month.

These are Perry figures, like those of the main units. 

Regiments portrayed are the Guardias Valonas in blue,  

and the Regimiento de Infanteria de Linea “Leon” in white.
The marvelously eccentric “flammes” on the back of the Spanish grenadier bearskins (actually made of seal skin for the Spanish, apparently) are certainly one of the big attractions for painting the Spanish army of this period!

These companies will serve in one of two combined grenadier units in my Spanish army.
