King's Lifeguard of Foote Complete

I managed to finish the King's Lifeguard of Foote this weekend by adding two stands of musketeers.  I was originally not going to use the drummer from Wargames Foundry but I changed my mind after adding some feathers from the Warlord Games ECW plastic infantry sprue.

The King's Lifeguard of Foote was primarily used as an infantry reserve once the mounted Lifeguard was raised.

All figures, with the exception of the officer waving his hat and the drummer, are from the Warlord Games ECW multi-part infantry box. The Royalist and Parliamentary boxes are exactly the same except you get Royalist or Parliamentary flags and painting guide with the appropriate box.

My two favorite figures I put together this time were both standard bearers.  The one with the pistol was a pikeman I converted and the chap in brown is one of the officer figures that came in the box.

Here are the forces so far:  The King's Lifeguard, Prince Rupert's Bluecoats and for Parliament Samuel Jones' Regiment of Greencoats.
 I could not resist putting the marksman in the old GW stone tower.

Next up:  ECW Cuirassiers from Perry Miniatures.


  1. Nice work! Thanks for noting the Parliament and Royalist boxes are the same save the flags. I have the Parliament box, unopened - but, your work is very inspiring. Best, Dean

  2. wow the whole presentation is just wonderful! I like the dynamic feel of the figures engaging in battle!

  3. Nice work Neil, I like to mix make of figure as well, it just adds that little something.
