Sir Thomas Fairfax Warlord Games is now selling copies of their Sir Thomas Fairfax miniature.

From their announcement:
Sir Thomas Fairfax, also known as “Black Tom” due to his dark hair and eyes, was a leading Parliament General in the English civil wars. A no-nonsense Yorkshireman, he was well qualified to command as he had fought as a volunteer in the Low Countries in the huge Continental wars that plagued Europe in the seventeenth century.

This dashing and popular man pledged his allegiance to Charles the First in 1640 leading a cavalry troop in the disputes with Scotland but later, exasperated by Charles’ high handed manner firmly joined the Parliament cause.

Fairfax went on to crush the Levellers, a dangerous radical group that emerged from his own army, and, to his eternal credit, refused to join the Regicides in their illegal execution of the King.

He was perhaps the most capable and popular Roundhead General, perhaps not as inspiring as Cromwell himself, but without his fanaticism, and was much loved by the men he commanded.

You can order this figure now on our website.
