The Shrewsbury Foote

The first one in the series and this one is from the Shrewsbury Foot. The regiment is made up from the remainders of the "Irish" regiments which after long campaigning have been reduced down to one regiment and I have tried to go for a rag tag look of bits of this and bits of that, stuff that he has from or acquired. He is armed with a modern version of the matchlock musket and has his charges in the bandoleers. I have go for the full bearded look of someone who has been on a long campaign. So here he is.

  1. I like it PK because that's how he would have looked. Haggard, near beat to death and dressed only in bits of this and that.

  2. You've accomplished your goal, PK. This fella needs a bath, a complete three course dinner, and a very long nap.
