The Full Regiment

Lord Hawksby’s Regiment of Foote.

Not brilliant photos but these show the full regiment in miniatures. Obviously I will be adding to this over time, and there will be Firelocks, command and a few more characters yet to come.

Although all the miniatures came from the Warlord Games Pike and Shotte Imperial Infantry boxed set these minis are using parts from about 11 different sets of plastic and metal miniatures. Here the musketeers are ranked 3 deep, but they could be put into two ranks for wider frontage.

More Musketeers

Blake Milbourne is the son of a merchant. Having no head for business and not wishing to take over from his father Blake has tried his hand at many trades, but until joining Lord Hawksbey’s regiment blake has spent the last few years working in a printers shop.


William Lilly is a Londoner who fled the city after getting into a drunken brawl. He made his way north doing odd jobs, he has spent the last 10 years working as a hired labourer, often on Lord Hawksby’s estates, and is known locally as a dependable pair of hands. He signed on to fight in a moment of ale fuelled enthusiasm.

Again the starting point for both miniatures are from the Warlord Games Pike and shotte plastic range. They both have arms from the Warlord Games Bolt Action plastic Commandos set and replacement muskets from The Assault Group.

2 Musketeers


Jason Bayly was a fisherman. When his brother was killed fighting for the cause of Parliament Jason decided that he could no longer sit by the sidelines, and despite the protests of his mother and wife signed up to fight.


Ed Cradock. Little is known about Ed before he joined Hawksby’s regiment. He is a crack shot and a tough character, well suited to the rigours of life at war. He is also noted for his skill with the knife, and to the annoyance of some others he is known for his oaths and curses. Many suspect him to be a poacher… or worse. What led him to join the ranks still remains a mystery.

Both miniatures are from the Warlord Games Pike and shotte plastic range. Jasons Face is from the Warlord Games plastic Hail Cesar Celts box. Ed’s arm is from the Wargames Factory Persians sprue and his musket is a metal spare from The Assault Group.
