At last some units of my own figures, I painted these up last month, but have only just finished the basing. The figures are once again Essex Miniatures, based up for Beneath the Lilly Banners rules.
The units in question are 2 squadrons of the Dutch Garde te Paard, otherwise known as Portland's Horse. They were commanded by Hans Willem Bentinck, who in April 1689 he was created Baron Cirencester, Viscount Woodstock, and the Earl of Portland, for which he is better known.
The Garde consisted of nine companies rather than the normal six as in other line cavalry regiments. They had a normal strength of 630 officers and men, however this number seems to have been maintained on campaign, giving them numbers equal to two line regiments. The Garde fought at the Battle of the Boyne and the Battle of Steenkirke.
They were in the pay of the British from 1688 until 1697 when they returned to the Dutch army..
The two squadrons flags in the photos can be found on my blog, just follow the link below.
