AdamC- Two and Two-Thirds Tercio (120 points)

  These are 10mm figures form Warmonger Miniatures a local company in Worcester MA that I supported via the Kickstarter they have a small line of landsknecht troops.  There are 60 Pikemen and 60 arquebusiers.
 The Front two stands each with 20 Arquebusiers are in gray and red...
 They are painted to match a unit of Pikemen I painted a few years ago.
 The second groups is 30 Pike men in brown with orange in the slashes typical of the landsknecht uniforms.
 The two sleeves of arquebusiers are in matching uniforms.
 As above.
 Rear view of the pikemen
 One of the things I love about this set is the musician is a fiefer not a drummer.
 Here we  have the last group another 30 pikemen in golden brown and with blue in the slashes
 Hear are the two sleeves of arquebusiers are show form the rear since you saw the other guys from the front.
 Rear of the pike men, the flags are hand painted.  This isn't my best work but it is only the second time I have worked in this scale and the detail on these small figures is impressive, I think they have more detail then many 15mm figures.  I think I might need to give them a wash I can't recall if I did or not with the last set or note.  Any way please check out Warmonger they have great products. Also a pack of 30 arquebusiers are available on my blog as a part of my 1000 post giveaway 

Something I didn't expect Adam, nice looking Tercios.  It's nice to see some other P&S figures on the challenge blog.  I wasn't aware of Warmonger, but will be checking them out.  I have painted 10mm, for WW2 but that was years ago.  There is a lot of detail to bring out on these Warmonger figs.  I like the plumes on the hats and the units look great with the pikes all bunched up like that.

Well done for 120 points.  I had to check the rules for the scoring since these are my first 10mms on the Challenge.

  2. Very cool entry Adam. I'm currently working on a pikeblock of these in 28mm and have to say that after my 30th puff-and-slash sleeve 10mm is starting to look pretty darn attractive right now. ;)

    1. 10mm is new to me but you do get an army pretty fast.

  8. Thanks every one, as is often the case I see only the flaws. I do think these guys will look good on the table, but my paint job is less then perfect for close inspection. Also I found the name of the sculptor is your interestd: Bob Naismith

  9. They look very good for 10mm, Adam. You got a lot of color packed on them which IS the Hallmark of the time...as well as codpieces, puffy sleeves,... ;)

    1. Thank you. The colorfulness of the period is the down side of doing the period in 10mm.

    I commissioned half the sculpts from Bob last year, I'm waiting on a few more orders so I can cover commissioning the rest.
