More Jacobite Infantry

 

I have been painting up some more Jacobite infantry, starting with Roy Stuart’s Brigade.

Here is Colonel John Roy Stuart himself. He was an ardent Jacobite who had served in the Royal Scots Greys before becoming a Captain of Grenadiers in the French Royal Eccossais.

He was appointed as Colonel of his own Roy Stuart’s Edinburgh Regiment.  I doubt if he would have worn Royal Ecossais uniform, since his French rank was junior to several other officers with that Regiment, but his Jacobite rank was senior to them.  I have therefore shown him in a tartan jacket and plaid.  He is a RedBox Militia figure with an added sword.

Additional Jacobite Prince’s Lifeguards

When I originally modelled my Prince’s Lifeguards, I did so just as three figures.  This was my depiction of them as they were at Culloden, two figures of Lord Elcho’s Troop forming a composite Squadron with two figures of Fitzjames’ Cavalerie and one figure of Lord Balmerino’s Troop forming a composite Prince Charles’ escort troop with one figure of Fitzjames Cavalerie.

Jacobite Lowland Infantry

 

So far I have modelled most of the Jacobite Highland Infantry, but only one unit of Jacobite Lowland Infantry, the 1st Battalion Duke of Perth’s Regiment, who were at Prestonpans (with some attached MacGregors).

You can see them here as they were later in the campaign.  They are mainly RedBox Loyalist and Militia, but there is one Revell AWI American Militia figure, two Airfix AWI British Grenadiers and one Redbox British Infantry (as the deserter in the rear rank).  All have Scots bonnets, achieved by headswaps with other similar figures who have been modelled as Loyalist Volunteers wearing tricornes.

Fitzjames Cavalerie

1-fitzjames-sqn

The French-Irish Fitzjames Cavalerie were sent to Scotland in February 1745, but three squadrons were captured at sea by the Royal Navy and only one squadron landed.  This is shown here.

I have shown them on matched black horses, but actually all of their horses were captured and they were remounted by dismounting Pitsligo’s Horse and Kilmarnock’s Horse Grenadiers, who then formed a Jacobite foot regiment, Kilmarnock’s Footguards.

Jacobite Cavalry

jac-cav-1

 

I painted one small unit of Jacobite Cavalry when I made the Jacobite Army for Prestonpans.  This was Strathallan’s Horse, shown here.  They are converted from Strelets British Light Dragoons in Egypt.

 

 

 

I have now created the remainder of the Jacobite Cavalry.  The units were all quite small, but I have modelled them at the greatest size they reached during the Jacobite Rebellion, which was the strength that they were at the invasion of England and Falkirk.

28mm Black Watch

 

Amost all of my wargame figures are plastic 1:72, and that includes Zulu War, 100 Years War, Napoleonic, 18th Century and the unpainted plastic mountain of Roman era figures.  The only exception is some home-cast metal Zulus, but they are 1:72 as well.

I do have half a dozen 28mm metal figures, since these were given away free with various supplements to Black Powder and Hail Caesar, which I purchased from Warlord Games.   Continue reading
