From BrendonW - Return of the Red and Black (52 points)

Greetings. The Red and the Black forces have returned to uphold the values of Bacon and Beer. This submission sees 28mm Perry Plastics x 10. I converted these from the Foot Knight set and used Pikes from the mercenary set to create these heavy pikemen. Not as easy to do as it is to type that sentence. Some new heads in this range from the light horsemen set in the same series. More on that set later.




Been a while since I did any miniature photography so a few trial and errors gets it done. Happy painting everyone. Cheers, Brendon.
Good to see the red and the black forces continuing to grow Brendon. These are every bit as good as what we've seen before and I like the way you've mixed and matched boxes to get the desired look. If plastics are good for anything then that's certainly it. Another 50 points in troops plus a couple for conversions adding to a growing tally sir! Cheers, Millsy.

  3. Great stuff Brendan. As someone who has tried similar swaps on these Perry sets I appreciate the work involved. I've booked marked these pics for future reference.

  4. Armoured Pikes. What more could a beer and Bacon general desire? Great additions and very nice paint. Long live the red and Black.

  5. Grand addition to the stalwart forces of Beer and Bacon! I really like your metal armor technique too! That is a massive forked plume on that one fellow!
