Project now completed with the addition of four more pike companies. Extra bits needed will be morphed in from elsewhere.
Intended for the League of Cambrai 1508 – 1516, so both sets are a bit on the early side – but never mind.
Another one of those projects I’ve been pondering on for some time, being unsure about my ability to replace the jointed plastic pikes which come with the MiniArt set with brass rod. This turned out to be not as difficult as I expected; tedious, yes.
The problem with this scale is the general lack of figures and command figures in particular; so I supplemented with Tumbling Dice 1/72 metals. These turned out not to be that helpful but managed to use some here and for another project. Tried Dixon figures in the mistaken belief that they were small 28’s; they aren’t, so will use them as command elements more for decoration than anything else.
Marx Roist, Cardinal Schiner, Confederation Flag. Dixon figures and one from Irregular.
Basing. On the left, two ranks on 60x60mm (pikes are 60mm). On the right, two ranks on 60x30mm.
In attack; Vorhut, Main, Nachhut.
Zurich. Front rank are Tumbling Dice.
If I wasn’t as lazy, I would do another five companies; Schwyz, Fribourg, Solothurn, Schaffhausen and Appenzell to complete the thirteen Cantons of the Confederacy. But I am, so I won’t
