These are from Blue Moon's latest range but I'm not sure who these are supposed to represent. (I did go to the source but Old Glory has not yet replied.)

Further, there is a pack called "Generals" who could be anybody, but I'm pretty sure these pictured here are meant to be very particular people.

Of the Parliamentarians above, Cromwell could be any of three of these (B, E or F?)

I do recognize Rupert's dog but who are the others? Charles I is A? or D?

Thanks in advance and again after too.

These are 15mm?

18mm

My guesses on Parliament:
B is Earl of Manchester,
D is Earl of Essex
E is Cromwell
A possibly Waller?
F maybe Thomas Fairfax
C ?????
Don't have a clue on the Royalists! (apart from the dog). They all look a bit old to be Rupert or Maurice.
Nice set of figures though. Could be tempted back into 18mm ECW.

They are outstanding looking sculpts, i would say parliament F looks more like a king charles I and when i get some thats who he will be!
I would say you could use any of the ones you picked out as Cromwell.
C or D in the Royalists look good candidates for Rupert.
As for the others i would think they could be anyone you wish, and i wont get to hung on the pack names of these figures, they could be a commander on any side!

Definitely Parliamentary F for my money

And Cromwell:

Sorry about that guys. Copied urls from Wikepedia pages; obviously misding something.

Old Glory, presumably under the same creative direction did the following for their own 25mm line. Maybe this will trigger some suggestions. Though it's hard to tell from these pics:

Parliamentarians: Sir Thomas Fairfax – Cromwell – Essex – Waller – Manchester – Skippon

picture

Royalists: Charles I – Prince Rupert – Hopton – Maurice – Goring – Sir Jacob Ashley
