Trying to find info about this unit has proved very difficult!!
They was raised in 1685 as The Earl of Shrewsbury's Horse, then was led and known as, Langsdale's Horse in 1687, Hamilton's Horse from 1687-88, then John Coy's Horse from 1688-91. In 1691 they were then numbered and known as the 6th Horse. In 1697 they were known as Arran's Horse (do not confuse this with the Earl of Arran's previous regt, like I did!), the after the NYW they were known as Cadogan's Horse.
In the list of The Army of James II encamped at Hounslow Heath in 1686, they are quoted as wearing a scarlet coat with buff cuffs, then in 1688 they changed to white cuffs, but in 1692 they were back to wearing buff cuffs again. So as you can see by the photo's I chose to have them buff. There is no recorded flag for Coy's Horse, so I used a generic pattern and coloured it a light brown. There is a recorded flag for the earlier incarnation as the Earl of Shrewsbury's Horse, which was yellow with a silver lion rampant in the centre, so why a yellow flag with buff as the lining colour??? I don't know!!!
Coy's fought at The Boyne, Steenkirke, Landen/Neerwinden and Namur.
As per usual the figures are from Essex and they're based up for BLB2.
Unfortunately, I started painting these a few days before the Analouge Painting Challenge began so they're ineligible................shame, I could have done with an extra 72 points!!
