What do I (think I) need? Enough terrain for a 4 x 4 or so table, including a river, a few roads with bridges, and a town or two.
First up, Baccus (whose lovely figures we are using) is an easy starting place with this nice village set
Here are some nifty tips for DIY stuff:
And here are some more manufacturers

While its listed in their Napoleonic rage, Leven Miniatures make a nice fortified Manor House that would do nicely as a Royalist stronghold

|HOU14 - Detached Tudor style house|
Dungeon Castings make this nice "House with Tower" as an alternative Manor House (DC-D0118)
Total Battle Miniatures also do this fantastic walled town set - very pretty but not sure if I need to drop 65 pounds on it at this stage and instead need more functional terrain. Very shiny though! Would make a great centrepiece for a Campaign though
And finally, what kind of Royalist would I be without a good keep or castle to fall back on? But my quick look around didn't provide me with the lots of options that I expected. I thought for sure there would be many examples of big '5 star' castles like Conwy, Raglan or Caernarfon. What I'd really like is a nice tower like Donnington (where the battle of Newbury was fought in 1644).

If you other suggestions or recommendations for us I'd love to hear them!
