LORD CARNARVON

Here we have Robert Dormer, 1st Earl of Carnarvon, who commanded the Royalist Cavalry at Lansdown , was wounded and was later killed at the first Battle of Newbury the same year.



Looking suspiciously like Gustavus Adolphus, the figure is by Del Prado with a missing sword replaced with wire. The real Carnarvon had flowing cavalier locks, so I might add them later if I get round to it.
