Pikes Progress

 Many, many moons ago I started a mercenary pike unit for the Italian Wars project, but you know how it is you have enough units for a game and other projects then come to the fore. Therefore the unit has been languishing with three figures painted and two started. Inspired by George's http://musingswargameslife.blogspot.com/?m=0 work on his Italian Wars project I have set to to finish it off. First two ranks are done, I do the base work as I go along so it is easier to do the painting and tufting that way I find.



The heavy armoured chaps are Steel Fist figures the remainder are from the Assault Group.

No game until next week as Dave is away, until next time.....

TTFN and KBO

  1. They look lovely Phil! Very colourful and suitably IW. George’s blog is a constant source of encouragement. His IW figures tempted me to look further, e.g. Yarkshire Gamers blog. Thankfully I’ve resisted the impulse to collect some of these splendid figures… for now!
    Cheers
