Presumably no lancers because my understanding is that, although the Spanish retained the lance longer than other countries, they had abandoned it just before the start of the TYW?

The caliver of the weapon used. Musketeers used a heavier caliver, while arquebusiers used a lighter gun.

Yes, but the name became generic. It was something like what we do with the word "rifle": you can use it for a 1853 Enfield, but also for a M1 Garand.

My figures arrived this morning, 8 days after I placed the order, which I think is extremely prompt, given that the figures came from Spain to me here in the UK. I think they're tremendous. Below is a quick comparison shot of some figures I had to hand. The figures are, from left to right, Horcata (first release), held in place with a pencil, Steve Barber, Perry, 1898, Horcata (second release, which are a bit taller than the first release) and Warlord Games. I'll certainly be buying some more.

Javier: are there any books or articles which show the colour of the clothes which Spanish troops would have worn during the TYW? I'm aware that there's an Osprey book, but is there anything else?

I'm preparing a painting tutorial focusing on colours more than painting techniques.

In the meanwhile, google Augusto Ferrer Dalmau El Ultimo Tercio and Augusto Ferrer Dalmau El Camino Espa񯬮 Augusto is a famous Spanish artist who did some superb paintings devoted to the Spanish Tercios. Also recommend to google Augusto Ferrer Dalmau El Milagro de Empel, though its an event of an earlier period (1585) its still useful for colours.

Forgive me if this question has already been posed- are there plans to release Dutch, French and Swedes as well as Spanish troops?

I realise that any future plans may well depend upon the sales of the Spanish miniatures so what I'm really asking is if this was envisioned?

Hello mate, Helion has an excellent book:

https://www.helion.co.uk/military-history-books/the-armies-of-philip-iv-of-spain-1621-1665-the-fight-for-european-supremacy.php?sid=76e6c53f332fb04fd39036fa5ea2db0f

As a Spaniard, this is the best book I have ever seen in English language, 100% recommended.

Cheers
