Irish Guards











This is the first unit of the Irish Jacobite army I've painted, I know in an ideal world you should leave the guards till last in case your painting improves, however their flag was on top and my painting is only likely to get worse as my eyesight deteriorates with old age, the grenadiers are put to one side to be part of a composite grenadier battalion, will be concentrating on this army as soon as I've finished the rest of the winged hussars, then I'll be fleshing out the English and Dutch I've already painted. The Irish units will be based with pikemen, this is to represent their poor weaponry but high fighting ability in hand to hand.
