Pimp Your Roundhead. A Very Bling Earl of Essex.

Unusually for me I took a Saturday off work today and in between drinking Guinness & listening to the test match on Radio 4 I wasted the rest of my time painting Warlord Games take on Old Robin.

He's destined to be used as generic commander in Pike & Shotte so I decided to make him as splendid as possible so he stands out as such. The blued and gilded armour is in the earlier Greenwich style but it seemed feasible for the Devereaux family to be in possession of a suit given their earlier services to the crown.
P.S. Do you think he looks like Beefy Botham? Shredded Wheat anyone.
