The English Civil War (1642-1651) started when Charles I raised his royal standard in Nottingham. The split between Charles and Parliament was such that neither side was willing to back down over the principles that they held and war was inevitable as a way in which all problems could be solved. The country split into those who supported the King and those who supported Parliament – the classic ingredients for a civil war. This blog will record my wargaming journey through the English Civil War using 28mm miniatures.

Sir Marmaduke Langsdale and Sir Charles Lucas

Sir Marmaduke Langdale was a Royalist commander in the English Civil War. He was the son of Peter Langdale of Holme-on-Spalding-Moor, East Riding of Yorkshire


  1. Sir, If I may ask where did you get this model? Sir Charles Lucas is an ancestor and I would love to purchase the miniature of his likeness.

    1. How interesting!! This model is from a company called Bicorne Miniatures.
