Re: Bulstrode's Regiment

Grey, if I was to represent them specifically, as this seems to have been the main colour used in Essex's army at the time, but it would depend on how they were to be placed on the tabletop/display with neighbouring units.

Re: Jacobite Foot at the Boyne, pike to shot ratios

The info may be there somewhere on Ray's blog, but can anyone just provide a straight-forward summary or list? E.g. Antrim's 3 shot to 1 pike, or an overall ratio for the army.
