Welcome to our home on the Web! Well it's brighter and hopefully better than ever before - well it all works - which is better than before. Don't worry despite this new glossy professional feel we're still the same bunch of reprobates looking to play toy soldiers!

The Coldstream Guards - 1672

Just off the Workbench and part of the new 1672 Anglo-Dutch Wars project are the restoration period Coldstream Guards.

Figures are from North Star (via Copplestone), and in 28mm to make them easier for my aging eyes to paint!

Known as Monck's Regiment these were one of two guards units of the period, they did not change from green to blue facings until about 1684/5, the exact date is uncertain.
