The Tangier regts by Brigantes Studios



The Command

Several months ago, infact last year!. These beauties arrived in the post from my good pal Loki , from Brigantes Studio. He very generously painted these figures up for me for free!!!
Its taken me an age to get them based up and photographed, so I can only apologise to Loki, for not showing them off any sooner. (I did get a telling off, when we met up at Salute, in April!)

So here they are in all their glory, The Tangier regt, later known as The Queen's regt or by their nickname, Kirke's Lamb's.

The figures are all from Barry Hilton's fantastic, Warfare Miniatures.


Grenadiers


Sergeants


Pikemen


Musketeers





The Tangier Horse

For the Tangier Horse, I chose to have them painted up, in their later uniform, as they would have appeared at the Battle of Sedgemoor, mainly because I couldn't find out what uniform they did actually wear, (possibly grey?) at the time and also so they can be used for the later wars as well.
Here's their lineage for my Donnybrook  period.

from 1661 Tangier Horse
from 1683 The King's Own Royal Regiment of Dragoons
1683–1685 John, Lord Churchill. app. 19 November 1683 —Lord Churchill's Dragoons
1685–1688 Edward, Viscount Cornbury. app. 1 August 1685 —Hyde's Dragoons or Lord Cornbury's Dragoons
1688–1689 Richard Clifford. app. 24 November 1688 —Clifford's Dragoons
from 1690 The Royal Regiment of Dragoons
1689–1694 Edward, Viscount Cornbury. app. 31 December 1688 —Lord Cornbury's Dragoons
1689–1694 Anthony Hayford. app. 1 July 1689 —Hayford's Dragoons

  4. Brilliant mini's Ray. Am I correct in thinking they are slighter in stature then your regular figures? I would surely like a picture of them alongside one of your earlier regiments as comparison. Anyway they still look like an ace unit!
