Command Figures

I recently documented my command stands, and expressed some thoughts about my representation of historical figures, namely Black Tom and Prince Rupert. See here and here.

Well, they have both been rebased, with added ensign and a personal standard. Rupert has a banner based upon the illustration in the Forlorn Hope Guide to Edgehill, and Sir Thomas has one that was illustrated in an old Military Modelling series of articles available from BCW Regimental Wiki.

There are also a number of new 'generals' who have mostly benefitted from my newly acquired evangelical zeal for headswaps. I have tried to paint their hair the correct colour: I based hair colours on portraits found in the book "Portraits of the English Civil Wars (The Face of War)", Google helping out for those I couldn't find. Helmets are a great cover-all if in doubt!


Firstly Parliament's new additions:

Next some Royalist commanders:


Left to Right: Lieutenant-General of Horse, Sir John, Lord Byron. Sergeant-Major-General of Foot, Sir Jacob, Lord Astley. Sir Marmaduke Langdon.

  1. Well done for getting as close as possible to the actual commanders. I think it makes all the difference to have the right generals in command :)

    1. I'm sure absolutely nobody will ever notice, but at least I know they are fairly accurate.
