I finally found a unit that isn't wearing the red/white/gray that seems to dominate the period.

The Spanish 3rd Tercio, green with red cuffs, quite striking actually, take a look here link

The Spanish have the best sense of style. Regiment Sevilla from the WSS:


And the whole gang:

Wargames Factory plastics.

Not sure what the scope of your project is? It looks like WSS but are you just focusing on units that were in Spain?

The French have a number of units in blue (Swiss mercenaries and at least one regiment that started out originally as Swedes) and a couple in brown.

The Dutch have some units in blue also, fwiw.

My apologies, the figures are 28mm Wargames Factory WSS minis. Now sadly defunct I do understand the Warlord is to be bringing them back into production.

No real focus on units, I prefer ones that served in the Caribbean area as the final objective is to play an Imaginations Campaign based loosely (OK, very loosely)on the situation in the 1700's. The only restriction is that I will only paint real units, they don't ever have to have served in the colonies. I just won't paint fictitious units.

OK. There is an example of French units in brown and blue on my blog:

You'll have to scroll down some.
