I have been collecting ECW figures for many years now, almost 35 really, I started with 15mm and then after many years I sold them all to be replaced with 28mm, which in turn were sold and replaced with yet more 15mm figures. These were eventually all sold again and I decided to reinvest in 28mm figures a few years ago. This time around I thought about what I really wanted from my ECW games and what I decided was that I wanted a more personal touch to my armies. Thus 'The Very famous English Civil War General Sir Stephen Wylde' was born in my imagination along with a complete narrative about him his Regiments and his exploits. Obviously a much needed and equally famous if not 'Infamous' opponent was born in the shape of my long suffering wargames nemesis and best buddy who has the ECW wargames alter ego of 'The Very Infamous English Civil War General Sir Nicholas Perks'. Obviously Wylde is the good guy being a dashing Royalist and Perks is the bad guy being a villainous Parliamentarian or vice versa depending upon your outlook or political leaning. With this in mind we both modeled our own generals in the best way we saw fit and then went on to produce a regiment of foot and some horse for our respective leaders. I of course researched the family coat of arms of both of us and designed the flags these being: yellow with black stags head devices for Wylde and Blue with yellow roundels for Perks regiments of foot. So, without further ado, here are some pics of Wylde's regiment of Foot.
