Covenant Pikeman

This chap is for a another plate of Covenanters  and is a Pikeman, if you could not guess. I have not given him another armour as most of the Pikemen either never got issued it, sorry there Victorians, or if they did throw it away as it was heavy and very uncomfortable. He is wearing an old style Morion helmet and has the plaid trews and a woollen jacket.

Scottish Covenant Pikeman  

The Scottish Government army was one if the main political forces in Scotland. Throughout the period 1639-51 it was Scotland's national army, whichever political faction was in power the army continued to fight for their paymasters; the Scottish Government.
