28mm Spanish Dragoons, 30 Years War.
I present you dismounted Spanish dragoons, painted some time ago. The unit is Tercio de Dragones of D. Pedro de Santacilia, the first peninsular regiment of dragoons sent to the Army of Cardinal Infante in Germany, during the Thirty Years War.. These would have been present in battle of .
The miniatures are excellent Bicorne ECW range in 28mm but there is a single Horcata Miniatures foot dragoon too. I tried to spend a good amount of time on each figure, because they are based individually (Dragoons in those times fought in skirmish order,, although not always). I use them for large battles, but due to the individual bases, I can use them in skirmish games like "Encamisada" from Liber Militum Tercios.
The full unit, based and ready to fight ! The banner is a red guidon, typical of Spanish cavalry and Dragoons, with Catholic iconography and a Burgundian Cross of Saint Andrew.
some more pics of the dragoons
I hope you like them!!
