Royalist Cavalry: Part Two

Here's the latest installment of eye candy. Four more Royalist Regiments of Horse.

Eagle eyed readers will spot the newer Peter Pig one-piece cavalry castings (pack 24 cavalry+pistol+hat).

All I will say is thank heavens for washes which help hide the really awkward bits to paint* at the front of the one piece figures.

Cornets, as alwalys from Maverick Models.

Colonel Sir Edward Widdrington's Regiment of Horse


Served mostly in Yorkshire, participated in Marston Moor, Naseby and possibly the besieged at Newark.

Colonel Richard Molyneux's Regiment of Horse 


Derbyshire regiment of horse based at Chatsworth, took the field at Naseby, and besieged at Newark.

Colonel John Lucas's Regiment of Horse
 
 
Part of the Marquis of Newcastle's Army, took the field at Marston Moor where Sir Charles was captured.
 
Colonel Thomas Leveson's Regiment of Horse
 

Participated at Newark, Marston Moor and Naseby



*They are if you are ham fisted like me, skilful painters won't have such issues

Now that 'death by brown paint' has been completed I can turn my attention to the star fort that I promised myself as a reward for finishing eight regiments of  horse (128 figures for anyone counting).
