I recently played two games on consecutive days, The Battle of Gloucester and then The Battle of Monmouthshire. As a result, I completely lost track of the events of each battle (middle age is clearly taking it's toil on my short-term memory). But in the interest of sharing some interesting battle scenes from the games, please find a selection of photos below.
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.
