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.

*Update: due to a reorganisation of a cupboard some space was created, which for purposes of symmetry and neatness required filling. So some more Sally 4th boxes were ordered, and new regiments were raised.

Currently each army consists of the following (not all painted yet):
  • 11 regiments of foot (34 figures each, 374 total)
  • 2 regiment of firelocks (24 figures each, 48 total)
  • 12 regiments of horse (16 figures each, 192 total)
  • 3 dragoon regiments (21 figures each, 63 total)
  • 4 light guns and limbers
  • 2 medium guns and limber
  • 1 heavy gun and limber
  • 1 assault team (2 petard teams and 2 grenadoes)
  • 1 siege engineer party (2 armed sentinels, 2 armoured engineers, 4 labourers)
  • 2 commanders with ensigns
  • 9 senior officers
  • Baggage train (10 carts) 
  • 37 casualty markers

Scots Covenators
  • 4 regiments of foot (34 figures each, 136 total)
  • 1 regiment of horse (16 figures)
  • 4 frame guns and pack horse
  • 1 commander with ensign
  • 2 senior officers
  • 9 casualty markers
