15mm English Civil War

Whilst i continue with the Wars of Roses project, i just wanted to share this ECW project i have had on the drawing board for sometime now, but it has not taken priority over my medieval and Italian wars projects of the last few years. However this year i have managed to paint up  a few Royalist Regiments, Prince Ruperts Regt of foot and horse, and the kings lifeguard of horse. I have made the two Regts of horse on the heavy side with some cuirassiers amongst them and most of the red sashes are sculpted with green stuff.  



The miniatures are Testudo purchased from khurasan miniatures, the choice was tough with so many out there but in the end these were my choice and wonderful they are, truly delightful 15s, which are actually getting on for 18s! Since i purchased Testudo miniatures, Bluemoon have released a new range, so some elements of there range will be included, certainly the artillery and personalities!
 Hopefully i can give this more time when i have managed to get the bulk of those bloody barons of the Wars of Roses painted up!!

  1. Amazing figures! Have you tried the Totentanz figures, meant for the 30 years war but I think in the 17th century most things are interchangeable. I like the black rimmed bases, recently I have started doing mine that way as well.

  3. Really lovely work, remarkable in 15mm, I'm slowly doing ECW in 28mm, emphasis on the slow!
