Finished another late Tercio

Hi guys,

Some months ago I started to paint a unit for my Spanish army, suitable either for 1670 or League of Augsburg War,  using mainly Front Rank miniatures, you can see the previous post here:

So finally I managed to finish it, a Provincial Tercio, made up of recruits, and ready to fight in Catalonia against the French. Also could they could be used in Flanders, as the uniform was (mostly) off white and red in several Tercios of the Army of Flanders.

In order to give some colour variation, I used 3 different recipes to paint the off white;  Artic Grey (Foundry), Rakarth Flesh (Citadel), Stormvermin Fur (Citadel). 

I really like the way it looks, with those Front Rank miniatures of their "Monmouth rebels" range intermixed with the more professional look of the regular infantry of their late 17c  range.

So here you have the pics of the finished unit:

and now some close ups of the miniatures finished last week:
