Parlimentarian Horse

The Orange sash of Parliament marks this man out as a Round head. I always thought that there wasn't a lot of difference between the Orange sash of Parliament and the Red sash of Royalist, In the smoke of battle things must have got pretty confusing I'm sure.
I think It's funny when It comes to ECW what side people choose when they start to collect and paint. I think It says something about you to which side you throw your lot in with. I chose to collect a Royalist army with out a second thought, even though I'm not much of a Royalist in this day and age. Royalist Cavalry.

I think it just appealed to my loyal mentality. I'm sure the members of the Sealed Knot must go through the same dilemma when looking for a Regiment to join.
Mind you, my town was a Royalist garrison for a while so that might have swayed matters back then of course.

I like him - he's got real character and the detailing on the figure's clothing is excellent!

Cheers,
