I finished off James ll's Irish Foot Guards a few weeks back but I just got around to photographing them. These are the first of my foot regiments for my Irish Jacobite army and I have another three to paint up before the demo game at Conquest, Christchurch, in late October. I'm halfway through painting Antrim's regiment (in white/grey coats) and I've also started another horse regiment (Tyrconnel's). I thought I would have a few more units done by now, but never mind, I'm sure the other Southern Strategists will be progressing their painting to ensure we have enough units for a decent game...fingers crossed!
|James's Irish Foot Guards. Three stands of 6 figures in double-ranks and one stand of 3 pikemen in single rank at the rear.|
|The centre command stand. These figures are by Front Rank and the flags are by Warfare Miniatures via the League of Augsburg website.|
|One of the two musketeer stands. I've chosen to have blue garters for this unit based on the examples found in the Guards Museum in London.|
