Voluntarios de Cataluņa. The soldiers with the round hat can be used to represent many diferent militia units (hundreds) in Catalonia and in the whole Spain from South to North. Additionally, they can be catalonian migueletes in french service.
Voluntarios de Valencia (VV): light infantry. Footwear were sandals like Catalonians coloured red for line and blue for light. Shako with plume in the side is based on a Martinet print. Other prints show them with the plume in the center. I presume both versions were right during the wars.
From left to right:
Peasant from Central or Southern Spain; The perfect monk to motivate the spaniards in the sieges like Zaragozas; can be a guerrilla from many areas in Spain including Catalonia, Aragon or Andalusia
Many thanks to Mr. Wild.
