Sir Hippisley-Cox's regiment of foot.

Sir William de Willoughby has been busy re-organising the royalist foot. With his own regiment mustering at Pokesay, he has come up to Wallingborough to inspect Sir Hippisley-Cox's regiment of foot.
[This grey coat regiment is the first of my re-organised regiments of foot that I've completed - with some repainted additional figures left over from combining other regiments].

Re-organizing - work in progress ....

I've been busy reworking my ECW collection over the last couple of weeks. All the single based figures, dragoons, artillery and wagons have had their bases refreshed with static grass. I've been focussing on the horse regiments - one regiment of horse and a couple of officers done
 The rest of the horse regiments have been re-done in units of 12, they just to have the static grass added to the bases ...
To have a rest form messing about with bases I've done a first set out of an enlarged foot regiment ....
initial idea is 8 pike / 16 musket with three command stands: commanding officer & ensigns, two off drummer & officer with partisan.

Will be carrying on with the re-organisation over the next couple of months. Will try and fit units as they are finished into the campaign 'story line'.
