This is the first of many new units to be added to my English Civil War armies - the Duke of York's own Regiment of Foote.
I wanted to add another unit of Royalist Foote wearing red coats (the existing unit of Redcoats is the King's Lifeguard of Foote).
I had planned to do a different regiment, but as I was completing the unit, I found this flag on line. It is the flag for the 4th captain, and I thought the red and black "gyronny" pattern was very striking.
I painted the coats with a faded red (Delta CC Madras Red), and used a medium blue (Delta CC Bluejay) for the "12 apostles" and other highlights.
My color inkjet printer was on the fritz, so I had to print the flags out in greyscale, and then paint over the pattern. At least the resulting colors are very vivid!
