WILLIAM GODOLPHIN'S REGIMENT

A Cornish regiment, so probably un-uniformed, but as these are pretty toy soldiers they need matching coats to look smart. As I am having to paint far more Royalist infantry than Parliamentarian for the Lansdown campaign , a couple of Cavalier units have to be able to double as Roundheads for future more evenly matched games, so these chaps have no identifying insignia to mark them as lisping cavaliers. In fact they look suspiciously like Lord Brooke's regiment who fought for Parliament at Edgehill.

Random ebay finds officer and ensign.


Back in my re-enacting days, Godolphin's regiment were secretly referred to as 'Godawful's' due to the flakiness of their kit. Hopefully these chaps are better dressed.
