I have been looking at my pile of foundry and progloria Landsknechts for 6 months and still cannot bring my self to clean them up and start painting them, I really cannot explain my fear of this inoffensive pile of lead, but there it is.
However its been some time now since I finished the 1st Swiss pike bloc and I always planned to do a second one, and this is one project I intend to start and complete.
This one will be all advancing this time so no nasty levelled pikes to impale my hands on .
To keep in theme with the first one I have ordered the bulk of figures from Perry with one pack of foundry Swiss pike men to add variety .
For command types and musicians i am going to try and get away with using Perry's Italian foot command with some Swiss head swaps rather than be repetitive and use foundry's again .
In the meantime I have these to add a bit more fully armoured types with these Perry war of roses figures. It never fails to amaze me how a simple head swap or removal of a hand held polearm to standard bearer can totally change the original figures.
