SIR ROBERT COOKE'S REGMENT

At last, a day off with some light and time to snap a few pictures of figures I have finished over the last month or so.

Sir Robert Cooke's regiment of foot, raised in Tewkesbury in early 1643 and then drawn to form part of Waller's army, the regiment was probably destroyed at Roundway Down in July of that year.

The musketeers are sporting monmouth caps, a re-enactment invention as far as I am aware, but I couldn't face making 12 milliput hats.

The A Call to Arms drummer has a Maros Models head. The officer and ensign are ebay finds.

The colours are those of Lord Saye and Sele's regiment (Cooke's are unknown), in case I ever decide to re-fight Edgehill.
