RP No 131 Henry VIII's Pikes & Demi Lancers


These are some of the figures I bought many moons ago for my 1513 English Flodden army, BUT the figures are dressed a little late for 1513, so they'll be used for Henry's later adventures in Flanders and Boulogne.


There are two units of English Demi-Lancers



And two units of English pike. The English were a little late in using the pike, preferring to hire German mercenaries, but I've already got stacks of them, so thought that'd look nice with  
the flag of St George flying high.




This little lot was painted up and was part of my last entry into Curt's Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge and earned me 128 odd points

  4. The two new units look great; not at all familiar with the period, but I'm sure they'll look fine on the battlefield. Best, Dean

  6. Another job well done. These stout hearted warriors should make some dice roller very happy on the battlefield.

  11. Splendid work, Ray. I generally hate pike (because I always lose to pike armies) but I love your fellows. Having a drummer in the front and your beautiful banners flying really make them stand out!

  18. Although they look pretty (the good type), I feel a bit robbed without the history lesson part being expanded.
