Colonel John Talbot's Regiment of Foot

Here's Talbot's regiment- the first completely based regiment in 28mm for my "For King and Parliament" collection, for use with the new ECW rules that Andrew Brentnall and I will publish late this year/early next. This is the first of 20 regiments of foot for a planned Salute game. 

It has three stands of 12 minis and a command stand of six. The minis are all Bicornes, beautifully painted by Chris Meacham, and the flags are from Flags of War. The photo is clickable- the detail on the minis is superb!. This is the way I'll base my minis for the game but, because it's gridded, minis can be based in any way that people want; no need to rebase existing collections!

I'll be at Colours tomorrow with Andrew Brentnall, running a big 10/12mm ECW participation game, do drop by and say hello. I'll have these minis (and some more) with me. Hope to see you there!

This week I shall mostly be basing ECW....

Here are a couple of quickly snatched WIP shots of the units I'm basing for a table display at Colours*. Above are some artillery pieces which were painted by David Imrie- I've rebased them onto larger bases. Below is Talbot's with an attached frame gun, also by David. Soon, I will need to make some scary decisions about flocking.... colours of grass and extent of coverage.

* We are there with a big ECW game; not sure where though, where we'll be demoing the ECW rules that Andrew Brentnall and I have been writing over the past year.

Colonel John Talbot's Regiment

Here's my latest regiment, part-based; Colonel John Talbot's Regiment, from Ireland, which served in Hopton's army. All the splendid Bicorne minis were painted by Chris Meacham- I just did the flags (which are Flags of War and very nice, indeed). I particularly like this regiment's yellow coats. Pictures are clickable.

I have complete four regiments on bases now, with another two partially based and roughly ten more-or-less painted but unbased foot regiments.

Andrew Brentnall and I are putting on a demonstration game (above) of For King and Parliament at Colours on Saturday week. The game will feature Andrew's impressive 10-12mm collection, but I'll have some of the 28mm units with me and we will be demonstrating the coming "For King and Parliament" rules. Do please come by and say hello!
