Old Archive .Old Glory Swiss Pikes

Recently i have been looking through some of my old Archives of work i have done in years gone by and found these photos of some Swiss Pikeblocs i did using old Glory miniatures. The figures are some of old Glory's finest and they were a joy to paint, the only pain being the hands need drilling out to take the pikes but once done turn into a bonus as they will not pop out of there hands!
  I used Perries Swiss heads on many and suprisingly fitted well!
  Although i have since painted a Swiss army using Perry and Foundry which i think look more dynamic ,these old boys still have there own look and charm , and certainly look impressive in mass pike formation!

  1. Old Glory's Renaissance range is a good one, no doubt. Your handiwork lets them present themselves far above their station. Superb!

  5. I think these are great Chris - and I copied your idea of swapping the heads when I painted up some Old Glory Swiss inspired by these!
