Landsknechts, two ladies, 15th cent Pikemen and El Ultimo Tercio

I haven´t done one of these "up and coming" posts for a long while and seeing as it´s nearly X-Mas, a look at some pressies for next year.
Firstly, Created by Alex, a landsknecht Command group..............
...and two late medieval ladies. Just look at the detail on the dresses, the table cloth and the tiny lion and unicorn on the tops of the organ..............
 
.....and sculpted by Frank Ziegler,  Charging Armored Pikemen of the Late 15. Century. Four ranks with six figure poses  each, 24 poses and he´s working on halbardiers and the bods have open hands which means they can be armed with halberds etc!! Add this lot to the marching pikes and halbardiers and it will be a very impressive block!! Loads more pics of the Pikeblock HERE.........
.....and from this painting "'Rocroi, el último tercio"(the making of the painting  HERE)...............
...the bods.....creáted by Massimo and they will be made into sets for Germania Figures. Loads more pics of the bods in creation HERE

The battle of Rocroi, from the film Alatriste HERE The push of pikes gets a bit bloody. If you haven´t seen the film, I can recommend it highly
