    White Knight,

    The Portugal Historical thread has dozens of drawings of 18th century Portuguese units, not certain about the Brazilians, but if they're on these boards they'd be in this thread,

    Have you got any prints Spanish colonial militia uniforms from 1700-1799?

    Specifically slave regiments or Spanish West India Company troops.

    Was there a reason for posting that picture, other than the fact that it looks cool, and the guy has a big moustache?

    It is simple: I like early 18th century uniforms
    Other pictures in this thread soldiers have big mustaches, too
