Hi everyone,
Just painted up some 15mm ships for a newly started Pirate project. All of my naval knowledge usually lies somewhere between 1760-1814, and can't seem to find many resources on the Spanish navy around 1715-1718. Can anyone recommend/show the uniforms, naval ensigns, etc of the Spanish, particularly ones stationed in the West Indies?

I'm hoping someone answers this. I'm thinking of adding Spanish to my Pirate/English 28mm pirates and it would be helpful to have some guidance.

Interestingly enough, something similar has been asked here before: TMP link

It's not a lot, but it is a starting point.

I believe they never had any uniformity in uniforms during the piracy period.
