I got my "French" pikemen out on the table top recently for a game. Okay, so they're painted as Anglo/Scots/Irish and should have slouch hats not tricorns but they looked magnificent. Alas their fortunes were slightly mixed: https://wargaming4grownups.blogspot.com/2021/08/williamites-v-jacobites-in-ireland-sort.html
The link does not work ?
I copied and pasted
Thanks for the compliment on the blog. It is sometimes an odd thing, blogging, you write a post and even when you see the hit counter tick up you do wonder if anyone is paying attention.
The pikemen would make good standard bearers if you were short. I normally just stick the flag poles in the ground as in the early days I didn't have enough and the poses I had weren't conducive to the conversion.
I have another batch on the desk to paint. These will be French. I spent Sunday morning substituting the pikes with broom bristles, and only succeeded in drilling the end of my thumb twice. The broom bristles are great. They hold paint well and have just enough flex in them not to bend out of shape in mishandled.
Re the link: I first posted the link as a copy and paste. It should work now as I put the html tags on it.
