An intermittent blog of two gamers and their adventures wargaming the English Civil War in 6mm.

Have at you, sir!

Dux Homunculorum here. I'm Paul's other half. In the sense of being the one with Parliamentarian sympathies in this blogging and gaming extravaganza.

I have been eerily silent on the blog so far, for which I blame the insanely busy start of the school year, and also the fact that I've actually been painting things in my scraps of hobby time. I've been shaken out of my silence though by the arrival of a small but satisfyingly heavy box of teeny tiny men from Baccus, which Paul kindly bought, and equally kindly sent them to me to paint.



With this box our ECW plans broaden to include the wars in Scotland as well.



So what have we got? A starter army of Covenanters, another of Montrose's traitors, some cuirassiers, cannon and dragoons for England and Scotland, and flags and bases for them all. Happy days, and thanks Paul for dropping your hard earned moola on these goodies.

  1. Now you just need forces for the war in Ireland!

    I'm looking forward to seeing this project progress.

    1. The Irish will probably be a Wave 3 project Tamsin!

  2. Grand news indeed Sir, and welcome to a War without an Enemy!
    Looks like a box full of happiness indeed- I trust it helps brighten the start to the Academic year :-)

    1. I let that one through to the keeper, being his first post and all!

    2. Montrose was no traitor . . . he was loyal to the Crown.
