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.

Colours to the rear. 

Raised as part of the Earl of Derby’s forces in Lancashire, they then served with the Oxford Army and later under Windebank as the garrison of Bletchington House and under Gerard in South Wales.

    1. Do you think that is because of the flags or dark blue coats?

  3. A very good sized unit. I reckon on 48 figures. What representative troop scale are you using? Marvelous stuff.

    1. It's very much dependent on the battle I'm fighting.
