Napoleonic Spanish Cavalry

My Spanish Cavalry brigade for the early Peninsular War. Very much a mix and match force


Maria Luisa Hussars (later became Estramandura Hussars) nicknamed the run-away Marys. These are Zvezda SYW hussars on the Esci Polish Lancer Horses.


Cazadores a Caballo - Voluntarios de Espagne. Italeri French hussars on the carabinier horses from the same manufacturer.


Villaviacosa Dragoons, using Italeri Prussian Cuirassiers


Rey Cavalry Regiment, known for its successful charge at Talavera, again Italeri Prussian Cuirassiers

Super looking cavalry regiments, and great use of alternate figures. I choose much the same units. I will eventually add a unit of Cazadores in the green uniform and helmet to mine.

Splendid. Are you going to make more Spanish cavalry?

Colorful and superb, love the hussars!

Mordred, yes I am now tempted to produce more Spanish cavalry, but some of the various units raised during the war
