Old School Stuff - Warhammer English Civil War

A few years ago a bunch of the guys in my local game group got into English Civil War. They played a few different rules but I was interested in Warhammer English Civil War. I played a couple of games and really enjoyed the rules. I fell in love with the figures by Renegade and Bicorne miniatures. I decided to jump in and several others were already building armies. I bought a bunch of figures from my favorite companies and got to work. Then it happened. I had an epiphany - I had no interest at all in the English Civil War. This was a critical realization because when I paint I spend a great deal of time thinking about what I am working on. This inspires me to research and learn more about the subject. The problem was that I didn't want to know anything about ECW...and this made it hard for me to get into painting the army. The pictures below are of the only unit I managed to paint for this army and it took me 2 years to get this done. By the time I finished this unit the other guys had already dumped all their ECW stuff. Sadly, I sold this stuff off a couple of years ago...and now I really wish I had stuck with it. The figures are just AMAZING!

And now I know why you've warned me not to sell my stuff! These really look awesome. But if you're really not into something, why bother pushing on with it. Anyway, nice stuff as always.
