Medieval Pike block (Pt 1)

The start of a pikeblock,  which is planned to end up with at least 50 bods in it. The colour scheme is  based on the swiss canton of Uri.
The first 12. Bods from, Redbox, Revell, Miniart, Italeri and Strelets, Pikes selfmade from floristswire
I´m assuming they would have held pikes above thier heads...they are pretty heavy things but back then they were pretty stocky strong people.
For a brilliant diorama of 13th century Birmingham click Here. It really is very inspirational...makes me want to get down to making  a few more buildings for Styrow on the Foam
