I’ve been painting English Civil war for a number of years now, however this has been a slow burn project. I usually paint 2 maybe 3 new units per year for this particular period but after a number of years I have a fairly large collection of ECW (English Civil War) figures. I have always been a Parliamentarian player as it fits in well with my obviously austere, almost monk-like devout character! Maybe not. Anyway I watched Cromwell years ago with Richard Harris as Cromwell (long before Dumbledore) and became enamored with the period.
It really is a fascinating period and for anyone who wants a potted history of the Civil Wars I would most highly recommend this particular song by Monty Python.
Below are the latest additions to my growing force. All figures are by Warlord Games from their Pike and Shotte range of figures. Over all I like these particular figures, the generals coach sat semi painted for almost 6 months and the Petard team was undercoated and then placed back into their box for almost a year. However the Cuirassiers went together quickly and painted even faster, about 2 weeks from gluing together to as you see them below
I have also got left in the lead/plastic pile 2 storming parties, 1 unit of Cavalry, 1 unit of Scots Lancers and that’s about it for the moment. After I have finished those last units I have no plans for further units, but in this particular hobby never say never!
