Last Four Parliamentarian Regiments of Foot Completed

I put on a bit of a push over the last couple of weeks and have completed the last four Parliamentarian Regiments, to make eight in total. The first of these is Thomas Fairfax's regiment of Foot, which I beefed up with an additional four elements of pike to represent a 'pike heavy' regiment if required:











The flag is again from Wargames Designs, and I used a mixture of armoured and unarmoured pikemen to provide some variety:





















Two more red-coated regiments in Onslow's and Birch's regiments respectively:





















And the blue-coated Aldrich's regiment complete the quartet:











Aldrich's regiment has three lions on its flag, which is a nice change from the usual simple white circles:











I also added a few more elements to the King's Lifeguard regiment, to provide a similar 'pike heavy' unit for the Royalists:











And added an additional command element and flag to this regiment as well, to lend it a little more gravitas:











Here are the four completed Parliamentarian regiments assembled together:































That is now sixteen regiments completed, eight each for the Royalists and Parliamentarians, with six Scottish Covenanter regiments left to go.

    1. Thanks Jonathan. I'm going to see if I can get all the Scots finished before the end of December, but I might be pushing it.

    1. Cheers Ray. I'm hoping that with a couple of weeks off over Christmas and New Year I can churn a few Scots regiments out.

  5. Nice work Lawrence. They are good meaty units. The read coats certainly make them pop.

    1. Thanks Mark. I wanted to include as many red-coated Parliamentarian regiments as possible as they can then span both the early Parliamentarian and later New Model army lists.
