A fine bunch of fiercesome fellows.

Nice painting and good positioning.

The work must be like a fine wine, it has had the benefit of being so long in the making. Did the pikes come with the figures?

Every pikeman either had the pike removed and replaced if originally already Holding a pike or in some cases a halbardier was converted to a pikeman ..using 0.4mm Florist wire .
I think only about 10 or so haven´t been converted in some way, wire pike added or head swop or both.
The one at the front in this pic (they were all halbardiers and all ended up in the burgundian pikeblock).. The original halberd covered his face (http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Review.aspx?id=2575) so his head and halberd were swopped.

Fiercesome is right, seeing one of these pike blocks coming towards you must have been unsettling.

These look terrific, great painting and great posing. No static figures here, there's a real sense of action.
