The First Regiment of Parliamentarian Foot has been completed over the weekend, I chose this regiment to start the ball rolling because of the colour scheme red uniforms with black armour looking quite smart. They were present early on in the war and formed part of the Earl of Essex's army.
The Banners are in tin foil for durability, folded around wire shafts, the flags finials and cords are provided by Front Rank miniatures.
I thought 4 banners per regiment would be a good compromise between too few and too many banners.
The odd Redoubt miniatures figure makes an appearance namely the banner bearer with a bicorne miniatures head from their spares range.
|Based on 3mm plasticard for durability.|
|Basing effects use my 2mm and 4mm grass tufts available through this blog or on Ebay.|
|Finally matt varnish testors dullcote was sprayed on to even out the colours and for protection.|
