Two sets again. This time, RedBox´s 15th Century Burgundian Infantry and Knights sets 1 & 2.
A lot of them can be added to the Ultima Ratio Swiss infantry sets or mixed with other Redbox WotR´s sets, the only small Problem, the embossed burgundian crosses need removing on a few of them.
Mainly heavy infantry. Nearly half of them have Bannerols (Little pennons/flags) on their helmets. While this isn´t incorrect, a bannerol was carried by the Squadron leaders, Conductors and Chief de Chambre , it does seem excessive with nearly half of them having one. Still, it gives a choice as to which bod is a leader type and they are easy enough to remove.
Mainly pikemen. Again, a lot of bannerols but again, easy to remove.
The molded pikes? IMHO, too thick and a wee bit too short for my liking, not only that, one or two suffered from "brewers droop" so I replaced them with Florist wire.
Not only are the molded pikes (IMHO) too short, thick or droopy but a couple of poses have got a lot of extra plastic between the pikemen´s bodies and the pikes. Along with the pikes, this all needed removing.
|The two at the front have had head swops|
Some of these, the pikes and halberds, will, along with a few others, form a Mk2 Burgundian pikeblock. The rest will fill out the infantry blocks.
