John Hampden was a key opposition leader in Parliament. He raised a regiment of green coated Foote, but evidently may also have raised a Troop of Horse, which I have raised to a Regiment!
The men chiefly came from his estates in Buckinghamshire. I have them mounted, far too uniformly, but in my usual toy soldier fashion, on Roan steeds.
Hampden and his men fought at Edgehill and the siege of Reading. Hampden was mortally wounded in action in June of 1643.
These are Old Glory 25/28 mm figures, "Cavalry in buffcoats and helmets, charging", with an extra officer from the "High Command" set. That way I can get two small regiments of 6 each by using the 10 figures in the set, plus a couple of extra officers.
