Sir Horace Vere's Regiment?

Funny the things you miss - I've seen the portrait of Sir Horace Vere on the wiki page many times and thought 'not very interesting' and completely missed this image at the bottom of the portrait. It seems logical that this depicts some of his forces which I believe were equipped by the King and through donations from local dignitaries.

Horace Vere, Baron Vere of Tilbury attributed to Michiel Jansz. van Miereveldt oil on panel, 1629

What gives with the conversion to the Wars of Louis Treize, Ralphus ?

Have you finally run out of material for the Louis XIV years ? As prolifically as you kept the posts and new materials coming, it wouldn't surprise me. Or do you just feel the need for a change of pace ?
