Don't panic! This is not an ECW homage to Stargate command, there really was a Lt Gen Thomas Hammond who commanded the Firelock artillery train guard, initially of the Eastern Association, then the New Model Army. link

I was one of the 1st players of ECW here in DFW in the late '70's & it's a favorite period. I wanted to play each side & to loan minis to those who would play but not invest in an army so I amassed 3 Foot regs & 2 Horse regs for each side & 2 Dragoon Squadrons. I also drew up a fictional shire for an ECW campaign which I ran 3/4 times & adapted it for a weekend or a single day event. ECW gaming can be like ACW or the World Wars or Napoleonics--certain players will only accept a command for one of the sides. Alas, the thrilling days of yore are no more!

Any pics Spurious?

I'd happily play any side – Parliament, King, Covenanters, Confederates, Montrose, Engagers. Although deep down I have to say I find Parliament's cause more appealing (plus family loyalty as forebears fought and sided with Parliament).

I do find it slightly strange that some can be so partisan hundreds of years after the events (which ever conflict it was – caveat I exclude living memory conflicts)

As one who was introduced to the ECW by SpuriousMilius I can attest to the pleasure of his campaign games and the interest they engendered. His Parliamentarian forces led by Colonels Morose and Taciturn faced the gallant Earls of Fairmount and Hemlocke on many a stricken field. Alas, in those pre- I phone days, few pictures were taken.

No pics, those were the days before cell phones were de riguer & the ones that existed didn't have cameras.
