A Wargamer in Madrid

I happened to be Madrid the week they have the changing of guard. Unfortunately, it was a rainy winter day and the troops were in their winter dress and overcoats. Still, here are the pictures:

Cavalry sergeant - a badass-looking fellow.

Artillery limber. Beautiful draft horses.
