Very nice figures and painting as always.  Looking forward to seeing the bagpiper finished.  Were they common in English units?

Bagpipes and a variety of other instruments were present at the Tudor court. They were also common in Northern France.

The inspiration for the pipes in a military fashion came from this German source upon viewing Henry’s army in array in 1513;

He had not many mounted men, but had his footguards or halberdiers with him, of whom about 300 all clad in one colour ran with him on foot. [From a tower the King showed the Emperor] what belonged to the town (the town of Therouanne and state of the siege). Whilst both lords were on the tower the King had placed all his people who were in camp in lines everywhere three or four deep. He conducted the Emperor through to inspect this. They are really big strong men having a captain to every hundred, and their pennon on a long spear as our horsemen carry them. It is carried with both hands in front against the breast. Some have English bows, some crossbows, certain of them maces with long handles and certain of them long spears; and almost all are clad in long white coats edged with green cloth and wear breast plates, and steel caps on their heads. For their field music they have a fluteplayer (schalm) and a bagpiper (sackpfeiffer) who play together and certain of them a trumpet."

This conversion for a piper has been a pig but I’m happy with the result
