Which ECW stuff do you have? Any particular ideas about what kind of ECW project you would like to do?

I have a bunch of Baccus stuff, couple of army packs each for the Oxford army and that parliamentarian rabble. Also have Polemos: ECW. Some is painted but I need more inspiration to keep going, because I keep getting distracted by other things. Reports on small battles like yours are just the thing to make me keep going. I shall have to pack them up to bring away with me when next I am home.
The stuff I did paint is themed around Newbury.23/03/2016 at 10:29 #39813
The good thing that I have found in looking at the ECW is that there really is a nice variety of battle sizes so that once you have an army pack done, you should be able to find a few battles to fight. Eight bases of infantry represent c.4000 foot which covers pretty much all the mid-sized battles, so it is just a matter of picking the battles which don’t have too much horse present.
I made some notes a while ago on the sizes of various battles and how many bases would be needed to replay them with Polemos ECW. If I get a chance I will dig the notes out and maybe post them on my blog.

Yes, with a set of rules like Polemos, it should be easy enough to put together a range of small battles and keep the inspiration going by playing those as you paint towards the larger ones. I’ve done ECW in 15mm before but lost interest because the rules did not inspire me, and then sold the figures. At least with having played Polemos:GNW I know what I am getting into and that I like the basic tempo points system.
It would be good to see a blog post with your take on various different battles.
Now all I need to do is find my ECW figures next time I am home. Then I can pack them up and take them away to work with me. I’m actually finding it much easier to make painting time now that I am working away from home and don’t have my wife finding chores for me to do all the time!25/03/2016 at 20:09 #3989826/03/2016 at 10:26 #39906
