Pike for Raphia completed

Finished the other 16 pike to go with the 16 shown in my last post. Shields added; LBMS, designed for Crusader and trimmed to fit Aventine's rimless pelta. 

I might just paint the edges in blue to match the smaller design (albeit identical) used on the other 64 already painted in this "unit". The transfers were kindly donated by my Raphia co-conspirator, Mr Simon Miller (aka BigRedBat), who not only has a lead pile, he clearly has a transfer pile as well!

This gives me 96 in two units of 48 to match up with my World Famous Pink Pike. Still need to do the basing - obviously!  ;-)

That's the last of the pike I need for Raphia. Next up, more Arabs.


  1. Love that blue. Might have to steal that idea.


  2. You've stolen a march! ;-) They look terrific, transfers look great, and the sea of blue helmets.

    I'm still wading through a seaq of pikemen, but have borrowed enough to close the pike gap, even if the painter doesn't come through for me.

  3. Thanks for the comments. I'll try and get the basing done over the next couple of days and do a few group shots.

  4. Wow, that is such a great looking unit already!

  5. I love the blue helmets. They look VERY Macedonian with them.

  6. Fabulous and very impressive!!
