This is a great site. Based around the ECW in 15mm it has plenty of inspiration. Here

From here where there is more.
We are pleased to announce In the Midst of the Kingdom is now available.
Today see's the publication of 'In the Midst of the Kingdom, The Royalist War Effort in the North Midlands, 1642-1646'. The author, Martyn Bennett, is Professor of Early Modern History at Nottingham Trent University. Martyn has written over a dozen books on the British Civil Wars and is also the presenter of television documentary series 'Rediscovering Notts'.
'In the Midst of the Kingdom' is the first work to study the way the Royalist cause was managed and prosecuted in the North Midland counties. The strengths and weaknesses of the Royalist command structure are examined and a clear picture of how the war was conducted by the King's supporters emerges. Although the author examines a specific region during the war, the study is arguably applicable to many other parts of the country as well.

This classic work should be on everyone interested in the Great Northern war period's wants list. It's the first time a book has been published in English for the Finnish and Norwegian campaigns. Originally published in 1953 it has only now been translated into English by Erik Faithfull. As well as the translation, this edition of it is very well illustrated with maps, engravings, aerial photography and Maksim Borisov's artwork. This all makes for a very complete treatment. Part of this book is a biography on Armfelt someone considered a hero in Finland. The battle of Storkyro and the siege of Trondheim are covered in detail. Of course the Carolean Death March - a great tragedy is placed under the microscope. So if you are interested in the Great Northern war after the death of Charles XII and beyond this book is for you.

'Hello. I’m Richard (AKA ‘Captain Blood’ on various wargames sites), and I’d like to introduce you to Bloody Miniatures - my new line of 28mm figures for the English Civil War.
It’s a range conceived to bring a dash of added personality to existing ECW / TYW collections, or provide characterful figures for skirmish games.
Bloody Miniatures are the work of the brilliant Nick Collier, original sculptor of the enduringly popular Bicorne and Renegade ECW ranges. If there’s anyone better than Nick at capturing the character of fighting men of this period, I haven’t come across him.
Those existing excellent ranges contain huge numbers of rank and file models in a variety of drill-type poses - perfect for recreating big battles set in that era. But perhaps slightly less well suited to the minor scrimmages, sieges, raids and sallies which typified warfare of the period.
Bloody Miniatures complement these existing ranges perfectly, providing a seamless fit in size, style and stature, with extra helpings of charisma and period flavour. They're designed with the ECW in mind, but TYW arms, armour, and dress were broadly the same. The figures are also eminently suitable for New World colonial conflicts like the Powhatan and Pequot Wars of the 1630s - 1640s, and for C17th 'folk horror' settings / rules like 'Witchfinder General'.
The first four packs are available now at bloodyminiatures.co.uk. The next four packs are already in the pipeline, and more will follow. I hope you like them.'
