Hi guys

Some 15mm Eureka miniatures WSS figures finished on commission, not sure what unit the Hussars are but the infantry are Catalan infantry, they are pretty nice figures, all comments welcome.

A certainly outstanding job, and very nice sculpts too.

Infantrymen blue uniform with red facings and stockings make them belong to the General Deputation Inf. Rgt. (a senior standing unit in Archduke Charles peninsular army).

As for horsemen, the General Deputation of Catalonia did build a couple of hussar companies in 1713, filling up its ranks with German and Hungarian soldiers who had refused to be withdrawn to Naples along with the rest of the Imperial Army. It's uncertain whether these companies stood as independent units all through the campaign, or were merged into Saint George Cav. Rgt. at some point instead. Perhaps they were named after their captains, but contemporary sources refer to them just as "hussar companies".
