    Hello Planeteers,
    I have just finished this Drummer of the Irish Regiment in Spanish Service.
    The figure is a 54mm from Art Girona.
    A little background on this regiment:


    The first Irish units in the service of Spain were formed in 1587 as the Tercio Irlanda ("Irish Brigade"), formed from defectors from the English army.

    Due to the number of wars Spain was involved in during the early 18th century the country could not provide itself with enough soldiers for its own campaigns. This was also exacerbated by the severe loss of manpower as a result of a plague epidemic. Diplomatic approaches were made to a number of countries with requests for the recruitment ofmercenaries to fight for Spain. Swiss, Germans, Italians and Walloons were recruited but the Spanish were particularly keen to engage Irishmen because of their reputation as soldiers. The Confederation of Kilkenny established licences for the recruitment of Irishmen to fight for the King of Spain.

    The Irish regiments in Spanish service were disbanded in 1818 at the request of their British allies.

    Cheers

    Excellent painting Daniel. Another fine figure from a prodigious painter. Getting the detail on the drum is exceptional.

    You know I am partial to a drummer figure and this one is real good example.
    As always your brush work top notch, especially the face and drummers lace.
    If I could add a very small suggestion......The thin white lines under the drum hoops are are the drum skin and would be the same off white colour as the drum skin. Just a little point but may add something to your great work here.
    All the best mate
