Description

Description

Cromwell. Our chief of Men.
Oliver Cromwell had little inclination to become a great general, and indeed had no military experience at all before he felt compelled to resist the machinations of Charles, raising a troop of horse in East Anglia and join the forces of rebellion. Many minor gentry raised local forces to fight for either faction, and Cromwell’s troops were no different in those early days.
 
After years of campaigning however and under Cromwell's studious and pious leadership his regiment of horse, a huge, double sized unit, became a well-oiled, disciplined machine - so much so, that the Royalists themselves named them ironsides.
 
Cromwell went on to command armies all over Britain, culminating in devastating and bloody conquests in Scotland and Ireland, crushing Royalist resistance wherever it was met. As Lord Protector, he became in many ways a pastiche of the 'tyrant' Charles as he himself crushed Parliament and ruled with his generals in a military Junta. After a number of years his rule became unpopular and when he died, possibly of malaria, his son Richard was foolishly offered his post, a post no one else could hope to fill, so that shortly a grateful public recalled Charles' son to the throne.
 
Be that as it may, Oliver Cromwell showed himself to be an able general, a superb strategist and a focus for reform in turbulent times. His military legacy was the emergence of the red-coated British army and a navy that would challenge all other nations to supremacy.
 
Warlord Games have modelled the Lord Protector in full battle mode, flourishing his hat to show he is well and in command, wearing an iron cap, or 'secret' on the crown of his head,
 
One king but Jesus!
