The Texas Spanish Tercios were raised in the early 1800s as reinforcements for the Spanish colony of Texas. The original plan was have four light infantry and four cavalry tercios of three companies each, but only two infantry battalions were formed. Stationed at Cadiz in 1808 the corps was never sent overseas. Instead both tercios were consolidated into a single battalion of 436 men and were heavily engaged at the battalion of Bailen.
This is the last of the Spanish infantry in the lead pile. More will follow in May.
Next off the painting table will be some French Chasseurs a Cheval for 1812-1813...yes I know I said I was done with French for that period, but when you buy the Perry Chasseurs there are so many options that you are left with enough bits to make two regiments. My Scottish blood would not let me thrown them away...”waste not want not” as my grannie would have said...and thankfully the Perrys sell the horses separately, so no waste.
