Carlist Infantry

Today I post two battalions of carlist infantry for the First Carlist war. They are uniformed in a generic fashion with blue beretts, red trousers and grey greatcoats. Since I'm planning to use them for the Gomez expedition, they are "Batallones Castellanos" so all the infantry that was not basque, navarrese, aragonese, catalan or valencian.
Of course the miniatures are Perry, painted with vallejo colours and The Army painter products. The "original" item are the flags. My flag supplier (Adolfo Ramos) doesn't have Castillian flags. It's funny because thereare a lot of different flags but apparently no one knows for sure how was the flag carried in Batallones Castellanos. Since it seems that the common flag design for carlist infantry was the red St. Andrews Cross and the provincial shield of each region, I bought a generic Adolfo Ramos flag and I my brother Robert helped with the design.

My brother happens to be and arquitect who knows a lot of photoshop and these kind of things so It was really easy for him to create the wonderfull flags that I present here.

By the way, my brother is now trying to stablish himself in the UK so if you need and arquitect or some type of design work you can contact him here. I'm sure he will do a good job.
He also was the illustrator of the map that can be found in my "download free scenario Baranda 1836" so yes, he also can work in the wargame industry.
