ECW 20mm Figure Comparison - contd - Big Chaz


Further to discussion of Charles I and his lack of inches - time to put the record straight.

Here is a contemporary illustration, showing that he was in fact a big strapping fellow - the tradition that he was vertically challenged is very obviously just anti-Royalist propaganda, as Ian claimed.

He is seen here with his dear children, B, C & D. Charles, of course, was the first Patron Royal of the Englishe Parley of Brevitists.

  1. I think you have a 30mm Charles figure there, with 15mm figures of b, c and d

    1. A remarkable effort - Benjamin, I don't think anyone has ever done that before. Full marks for perseverence!

  3. A king amongst kings! We can't say the same about 'wee' Ollie Cromwell though can we?

    1. Indeed you are right - not only that, but he had a WART. And, not only that, he blew up the castle next door to our house. Not a king at all.

      Boo!
