Covenanter foot complete!



I have just finished the foot component of my Covenanter army for DBA-RRR. This consists of 5 elements of pike and 5 of muskets, based in my usual unorthodox manner. The figures are nearly all Tumbling Dice, with a couple of SHQ musketeers skulking in the background. The SHQ figures have loads of character, but their muskets look like toys compared to the (overscale) weapons carried by the TD figures. Pikes are all made from trusty broom bristles, and the flags were taken (with great appreciation) from the Project Auldearn blog.

These are just some hasty photos. I have two elements of artillery to go to finish the army, and then I'll post some images of them all in their dour Presbyterian glory.

  1. These look great, I am particularly impressed with the "broom bristle" pikes!

  2. Thanks Matt! I read suggestions about making pikes from plastic broom bristles on a modelling forum, and it works really well. Using some pliers to squash the end, then cut to a point with a knife. Easy and cheap.

  3. Great looking figures. That pike block looks very impressive.
