|The mighty army of his most Royal Highness Charles I,|
by the Grace of God King of England, Scotland, and Ireland.
I've been promising for some time to get my entire ECW army out and photograph it so people can have a gander. Well, this afternoon I finally got round to it. Just setting things up took the best part of 90 minutes but when you look through the photos you'll understand why. Photographing something of this size without the benefit of a studio presents a range of challenges and overall I'm pretty happy with the images despite that.
In total there are 12 commanders (mounted and on foot), 68 horse, 252 foot, 4 guns and 12 crew. In unit terms it is 2 x lifeguard (1 in cuirass), 4 x regular horse, 1 x mounted dragoons, 2 x dismounted dragoons, 5 x pike and shotte, 1 x clubmen, 4 x artillery and a bunch of command including the King, Rupert (and Boye!), Edmund Verney, a Scout Master, Master Gunner and others.
The miniatures are predominantly Renegade and Bicorne but there's also Foundry, Redoubt and even a few Essex mixed in. Every single one was painted by me, many of them during Curt's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge over the last 3 years. Cheers Curt!
Anyway, enough blather. Time to let the photos do the talking. Remember to click for the full sized images...
I hope you've enjoyed the photos. Please leave comments. The hits are all very nice but it's the interaction with our followers that makes this all worthwhile. :-)
