28mm ECW Sir Allen Apsley's Regiment of Foote


Breaking away from Napoleonics for a bit. We recently moved and so the past few months have been spent slowly unpacking stuff that has been put away in boxes for years. Anyway, here's something dredged up from the lead archive. A regiment of ECW foot composed of Redoubt castings which I painted at least ten years ago. I dusted them off, touched them up a bit and thought I'd post a few shots for those who might find them interesting.


This is Allen Apsley's Regiment of Foote. I believe it was composed of Royalists from Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Cornwall. These castings are listed as 28mm but are probably closer to 33-35mm. They're kinda quirky in style but I quite like them. I've always enjoyed the look of a 'hedge' of pikes, intermixed with loads of company banners (these are from Brian at Vaubanner Graphics), along with the flanking sleeves of shot. Years ago I acquired a bunch of Redoubt stuff in an ebay auction and it has remained on the sidelines as one of those distant 'retirement projects'. Seeing this stuff again makes me want to get a few more units done... I'll put up a few more shots of other ECW stuff in the coming days (as I get it better sorted and rearranged in the display case).
