Yes…I am still going with the pikes… the fourth base is nearly done another strip and a half short….again!
As you can see I have got a pile of arqubusiers and more pikes on the go. Joe and I were discussing the huge size of of the units and have decided to go for four bases to equal the eight in the rules. This actually means that I have three Landskecht Pike blocks done. I still need the Tercio so will use some of the above pikes to add to the rear ranks of the Spanish units.
I have the same number of arqubusiers and pikes base coated as the above image. I have about the same again undercoated. I will hopefully get the zweihanders primed tomorrow as they will become my Doppelsoldners for the pikes.
To be honest the plan to drop the number of bases may not work as it needs to look sensible compared to the other based miniatures… for example a Reiter cavalry force is six bases, all be it with only one miniarure block per base. I will have a check tomorrow to see how things look.
Warning, Warning, Warning… the following is as Trigger warning if you are a bit of an Anal Retentive…. I got fuel yesterday and this was the readout… the small lower number is the diesel price per litre.
