For King & Parliament!

I have always had a fascination with the English Civil War, having had a brief flirtation with a reenactment group back in the day (the 80’s), and being in love with 17th century history in general. So when this was announced I was all ears…


If you are thinking the cover looks familiar, it is because we share a layout artist – Millsy from Cobalt Peak Design.

‘For King and Parliament’ is a simple set of wargames rules for the Civil Wars in England (and Scotland and Ireland) of the mid-Seventeenth Century.

Written by our good friend Simon Miller, and ECW afficionado Andrew Brentnall, they use mechanisms that will be immediately familiar to players of the popular ‘To the Strongest!’ ancient and medieval rules.

Simon, and his Companions, have been seen at shows the length and breadth of the land putting on ‘To the Strongest!’ demo games that are famous for being 20+’ long and featuring thousands of 28mm pikemen. Yet the game only take 2-3 hours at most (with stops for tea and scones along the way).

This year we can expect less pike, but many more gorgeous banners, as they take to the shows once more, but with the forces of the honorable Parliament or the dastardly Tyrant Charles. I, for one, am really looking forwards to seeing them.


Did I say less pike? Hey, look at the banners!

You can find Simon’s blog, with many more details here:



About Craig

For those who need to know these things: - I'll never see 50 again. - I'm tall enough to see well in crowds and fat enough to leave a wake. - I'm well married to a woman with twice my smarts, three delightful and challenging children (er-hem), and one cat overlord. - I am Welsh. - I have to work for a living, but do nothing that makes me perspire.
