A few of my troops.

I started the Civil War army with the Battalia Set from Warlord Games. The box contained enough figures for two regiments of foot, two regiments of horse and a storming party.

The foot regiments consist of three sprues containing 13 figures each plus a command sprue of two officers and a drummer/fifer. Enough to construct 42 figures and initially that was indeed what I did. At the time I had the idea to war game with the figures in the future and after painting a couple of full foot regiments, realised on the small table I currently have access to, 5 feet x 3 feet, they would be too large so I now build foot regiments of 28/29 figures. Each horse regiment is 12 figures strong.
Part of the Parliamentary Army. Dragoons at the front, four regiments of Foot and a regiment of Horse at the rear. Oliver Cromwell raises his hat to his men.
A pair of Royalist regiments in the foreground, part of the artillery and six regiments of Horse on display.

The Marquis of Newcastle's Foot (Royalist) move to occupy the church ruins.

I don't claim to be a great painter, but to be fair, you don't need to be. The mass of figures grouped together, draw the attention not each single figure.

I shall post more photographs in my next update.
