Burgundian Pikeblock

This set is Miniart´s  Swiss Infantry...but I decided I liked the look of the Burgundian livery and now they are a burgundian pikeblock.
I´ve swopped the Livery colour combination, of white on the right and blue on the left cos it looked more "mixed" .(and I got bored painting them all the bloody same :-D )
Oh yeh, they are based for Impetus...well the frontage is the right width. I never really thought too much about the depth...or cared... I just like the look of a lot of bods with pikes :-D 



 I´m making another post later today so I´ll save the Hellos to then :-D  (and the wife wants the PC now to do some printing :-D )

  7. They look great Paul. Is that the original plastic pikes or have you replaced with them with metal ones? (or is metal a dirty word??)

  9. Thanks:-D
    They have been replaced with florist wire pikes..0.4cm...the trick with broombristles is ok but find a decent broom with all the bristles the right thickness and all straight..not common. Also the plasic ones, unless they are basecoated with special paint, loose the paint when they get slightly bent. The metal ones not.
    Cheers
