More Montrose Irish


Here is my second regiment of Montrose Irish this time advancing and loading. The figures are once again the fantastic Bicorne ECW range. The flag is from Flags of War where the generous Ian sent me free enlarged ones to replace the smaller ones I had. The old ones were very nice, but the new ones are even better both in quality and size. Thanks again Ian if your reading!!

The principle behind this regiment is the same as the other one I did in that I took quite a few liberties in my impression of the hard fighting Irish Brigade and thus is not an attempt on a direct reflection of what they looked like, but I still hope it comes off looking if not exact then somewhat believable.

I'm looking to shift into the Scottish portion of the army soon with Renegade and Redoubt figures making up the lion share of those regiments, but I probably will come back and do a third Irish regiment at some point. I'm not sure if I want to paint tartans on my Scots as that's horribly time consuming!
Thanks for viewing!:-)

  13. Another wonderful looking unit Christopher. My knowledge of this period is fairly limited so whatever liberties you took with the uniforms/colors escapes me, but I know I really like what you've done.

    1. Thank you. Well I left off tartans and changed the top from a grey to green and kept them with long pikes intend of shortened ones for example.

  21. Those look ridiculously good! I've been tempted by the ECW and the 1664 rules, but haven't made the leap yet!

    1. Thank you very much Cory!

      I own 1664 rules they are decent, but I prefer Pike and Shotte. Check it out if you have not already.

  22. Chris, those are absolutely superb - impossible to imagine an Irish ECW regiment done any better, to be honest. Looking forward to seeing the Scots (tartan ain't that bad, really!).

    Best wishes
