This level of equipment was, of course, also what Royalists aspired to. Ironically the "harquebus" itself wasn't that commonly issued to such troops.
What I do think these figures would represent well is poorer quality, locally raised troops that would be used for raiding and skirmishing out of small garrison posts and could be drawn out to join and support larger field armies operating in the area or they could be mixed in with better equipped figures to represent servants supporting their masters.
