Alan has done the lion's share at this point. Actually, he has done everything including painting both armies so that we might be able to get on with it when we again live in the same hemisphere. However, a rather large parcel is now making its way from Baccus to allow us to take the war north of Hadrian's wall. For rules we are planning to use Baccus's ECW Polemos, or maybe the Basic Baroque (See here) as I know Alan really likes Impetvs.
Excitingly, Alan has now finished the first seven Royalist Foot units, which is very exciting news!
And here is Alan's Parliamentarian Army ready to do battle - impressive en mass!
You can see Alan's great 6mm ECW offerings, using the lovely Baccus range of figures, at his blog here: http://dux-homunculorum.blogspot.com/search/label/6mm%20English%20Civil%20War
So anyway, for those somewhat interested (but mostly as a notebook for me), here is some eye candy and inspiration for ECW in micro scale.
Inspiration from the Baccus site:
These fantastic figures are from Lee's sadly abandoned ECW project here: http://ecw6.blogspot.com.au/ and here

OK, thats probably enough rambling about 6mm ECW for now but expect more in the future!
*** Actually, now that I think about it, Alan has a lot to answer for in terms of my gaming expenditures overs the past few years: Battlegroup (various) and the introduction of 15mm WW2 into my Man Cave, SAGA (5 war bands and counting) and now this, but I'm sure there is more... Thanks mate, now I have some sort of plausible deniability - at least to myself anyway (for some reason SWMBO doesn't find this rationalisation credible).
