Spanish mid-late XVII c. colour plates
I wanted to write a post about old and new colour plates from various books and illustrators of this part of history.
Spanish tercios in Mid-Late XVII century:
Starting with Patrice Courcelle works,
Spanish troops mid XVII c. ensign and arquebussier (too colorful for my personal taste)
Spanish troops 1680-90, Pikeman, dragoon and musketeer
Now some Spanish tercios of Catalan origin in the Pyrinees fronts from Franco-Dutch war to League of Augsburg War 1672-1697:
(comments on the plates)
all the previous Tercios are recruited in Catalonia and Valencia (Kingdom of Aragon, Spain)
Next batch are from Jose María Bueno, old plates but nice anyway!
Pikeman 1668 Ceuta.
Spanish General in typical purple
Spanish Cavalry: left to right: Royal Lancers, Royal guard mounted, Dragoon, Dragoon and Cuirassier, mid/late XVIIc.
Royal guards: Up Royal guard and Guardia Chamberga/Tercio de la Reina.

Now from the defunct magazine "Researching & Dragona", the Spanish army of Naples.

and Italian troops from 1650.
