plastic pikemen/spearmen

In the grim darkness of the past?

plastic pikemen/spearmen

Hey guys,

big rings player but fan of historical ranges. I am working on a new rings army and recently have been using some of the great models available from the different historical companies.

I am looking for plate armor, partial plate, or at least chainmail pikemen/spearmen. Checked out warlord, foundry, grippingbeast, and perry brothers. A lot of the stuff is metal so it is harder for conversion work.

The final look I hope to get is a heavily armored phalanx, with my 2nd rank guys doing the roman turtle pose with some large tower shields.

to sum up, looking for great plastic middle/late ages spearmen....

Minor hijack, I'm on a similar type hunt but for thugs with bows/knives and whips.

Have you seen the kits from FireForge? They have men at arms out now, with foot knights to be released soon.

I like those fire forge models. are they pretty close on scale to say, gripping beast for a reference? I know old glory leans towards the smaller size

Shawn did a very nice size comparison with the FireForge Kinghts.

I find the Knights to be slightly small, but the knights were also full of flowing capes which actually made the figure look bigger than a typical historical figure.

would the assumption that the men at arms would be the in line with the same scale as the mounted knights? I might just bite anyway, warstore has them so I can avoid the international shipping.
