So I have decided after a long while to get into the pike and shot period and i thrown my lot in with the king... for now

Here is the beginning for my 1st regiment of foot pike block - points to those who guess which regiment :)

















Hope you enjoy them and more to come soon!

Very nice choice of colours. And the expression on some of their faces is amusing.

A good looking regiment! Perhaps Tilliers or Warrens? Look forward to seeing more.

Bold and bright. What's not to like? They're certainly going to stand out on the tabletop.
Good work :)

excellent brushwork, I especially like the subtle shading on the flag.

Thanks all -

I have been thinking on how to go about building this force and possibly down the track also a parliamentarian army and decided to do something old school and use the scenario from Charles grants "wargame tactics' as a basis. The battle of "fiddlers bottom" lots of models and an interesting set up with potential for lots of re-playability.
