Lowland Regiments of Foot

Whilst 'upgrading' some of the pictures of figures, I realised that I hadn't actually pictured my Covenanter regiments of foot properly. So here they are:

Master of Yester's Regiment
The regiment was originally raised, and disbanded in 1639. Raised again in 1643, taking part in the siege of York and Marston Moor. Disbanded (again) in 1647, only to be raised (yet again)in 1648. Took part in the Preston campaign eventually surrendering to the New Model Army at Warrington.


Earl of Crawford-Lindsay's Regiment
Raised in Fife in 1643, the regiment went on to the siege of York and Marston Moor. Joined John Baillie's army in 1645, eventually being destroyed at the Battle of Kilsyth. Raised again for the third civil war in 1650.

Earl of Buccleugh's Regiment

Raised in Tweeddale in 1643, the regiment joined Leven's army and marched south. taking part in the siege of York and Marston Moor. Taken over by Scott in 1645 they took part in the siege of Newark. The regiment formed part of the Scots New Model Army, reinforced by other regiments returning from England. In 1648 the regiment were accused of plundering Kirkcudbright. Scott opposed the Engagers and left for Europe, so the regiment is taken over by Baillie. A detachment took part in the Preston campaign. Surrendering to the New Model Army at Warrington.
