This is a unit I started a few months ago, but, as with other projects, has been slowed down quite a bit because of my illness. The unit represents the Dutch Blue Guard, King William III’s personal regiment at the Battle of the Boyne in 1690.
I’ve seen a few variations on the uniforms as to the color of the cuffs, etc… ranging from golden yellow to bright orange. I chose to go with a more yellow color, basing my painting on the plates from “The Battle of the Boyne” by Osprey, while doing some details in orange. It may be somewhat off, but I like the colors.
The standards are from Iain at Flags of War, just a few of the brilliant Williamite Wars flags he offers. The figure are from Front Rank Miniatures, 28mm. They are based for the game Fields of Glory: Renaissance.
