This regiment is made up of in the main TAG figures, definitely not the cheapest, but probably the best researched. I know that the Spanish infantry tended to deck themselves out in as much armour as they could grab, and TAG have tried to detail this.I have thrown in a couple of Foundry figures and a Perry commander for good measure. The flags a mixture of Adolfo Ramos and Pete's flags. Both very good, and great value.
I have started building my next Colunella, which is made up of the old Connoisseur range. Peter Gilder wrongly decked them out in morions, but whose to say any different, and they are still very good figures although a little samey. So I have to admit I am a little off course by painting some Spanish, but I'm certain if Cesare had survived the death of his father he would have ended up encountering them one way or another. Personally, and with hindsight if Id been Cesare I would have been emphasising my Spanish background and ratting on his French allies asap.
