Here are some photos of Andrew Brentnall's splendid 12mm Edgehill game, as recently re-fought in the village of Chalgrove.




More photos are on my blog at: – link

The rules are the "For King and Parliament" set that Andrew and I have been writing together, based on my "to the Strongest!" ancient and medieval set. They are coming along very nicely and I hope to publish later this year.

Best, Simon

No where near enough figs on the table!

j/k, that looks amazing. Very cool. While ECW is something I have no interest in, I'd definitely play in that game.

Between For King and Parliment and Pikeman's Lament I look forward to a lot ECW AAr's in the near future.

Thanks for the compliments, guys. It has just about 2,000 figures in a 12ft by 6ft table. In fact this is less than half my collection, and I hope to begin work on a Marston Moor scenario before long. should be fun! Working with Simon has been excellent, and has encouraged me to develop all sorts of markers to prettify the field. The thing I am currently working on is 'destroyed unit' markers, to clutter up the battlefield a bit. Watch this space!

This is clearly the way to do big ECW battles. How big are the movement trays?

Hi Robert,

Warbases make these sabots to your own specifications. The standard infantry battalia ones I use have an interior measurement of 4 1/2" x 1 1/2" + a couple of mm 'windage'. This is because my individual bases are 1 1/2" squares which I set as my standard when I expected to make a Volley and Bayonet variant about twenty years ago! Some of the Parliament horse, which represent deeper formations, have interior dimensions of 3" square.

Thanks for the kind words Mollinary- and thanks for bringing and running the splendid game!

I played the King's side during one of Mollinary's test games and can testify to both the beautiful spectacle of all those miniatures in real life and also how enjoyable a game 'For King and Parliament!' gave.
