Army Composition

If you look at orders of battle from the wars, you will notice that there is almost a straight 50/50 split in force numbers between foot and horse.


Looking at my Parliamentarian and Royalist armies I have adjusted them to try and represent this 50/50 split, although my division is by unit numbers rather than an actual 50/50 figure split.

Currently each army consists of the following (not all painted yet):
  • 9 regiments of foot (34 figures each, total 306 total)
  • 1 regiment of firelocks (24 figures)
  • 12 regiments of horse (16 figures each, 192 total)
  • 2 dragoon regiments (21 figures each, 42 total)
  • 4 light guns and limbers
  • 1 medium gun and limber
  • 1 heavy gun and limber
  • 1 assault team (petards and grenadoes)
  • 1 commander with ensign
  • 6 senior officers
  • Baggage train (8 carts) 

Scots Covenators
  • 3 regiments of foot (34 figures each, 102 total)
  • 1 commander with ensign
  • 2 senior officers
Clearly my Scots are in need of some horse.
