Colonial expansion under the crown of Castile was initiated by the Spanish conquistadores and developed by the Monarchy of Spain through its administrators and missionaries. The motivations for colonial expansion were trade and the spread of the Christian faith through indigenous conversions. It lasted for over four hundred years, from 1492 to 1898.

All are from the various CMF series except for the slave Leias that I got from the Build-A-Minifig. I also used different heads for the tribesmen to portray different facial reactions.

Fantastic capture of a historic event. It's not the biggest of mocs, but it's so well-made and filled with details.

It's a start of hopefully something bigger, so just keep posted on where these Spanish explorers show up next. :wink:
