One final post this year to show the 47 "Early Spanish" unit images added to the REN II units file.  These can be used for the battles of the early Italian Wars (prior to the accession of Charles V and would also be suitable (with the addition of native Indian allies to be added later) for the conquest of the Aztec empire. Also included are 6 images for mercenary Spanish & Italian Infantry Arquebusiers, who served in many European armies of the first half of the 16th Century. With these additions the image count for the "units" file has now passed the 1000 mark. 

I also have most of the relevant leader tiles for this period already done including Hernán Cortés, Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba ("El Gran Capitán") and Diego Hurtado de Mendoza, 1st Count of Melito. I will add these to the "leaders" file at the same time as the Spanish leaders for the later period. This will happen after I finish the Spanish off with a set of unit portraits covering Spanish armies through from Charles V to the reign of Philip III and the start of the 12 years truce with the Dutch.

Happy new year

All the best
