New Foot Regiment - grey coats

I've started back into the lead pile, fed up with painting horse so for a change did a regiment of foot. The uniform is that of Sir Thomas Glemham's Regiment, although the flag is not, should be red but I liked the white/black scheme it seems to fit with the uniform.

The figures used are a right mixture, this regiment was cobbled together from the spares box - so there are Irregular Miniatures, Romanoff, Jacdaw mixed together with arm and head swaps. I had to convert some Irregular Miniatures 'Soldier with flaming torch' into pikemen, plus a couple of engineer figures into musketeers as well.

Yes indeed! -14 degrees C tonight - we are not used to that here on the Emerald Isle (currently the frozen Isle)

Very nice! I would never have guessed at the mixed origins, they fit together so well.
