    Taken a bit of time to get this post set up, my PC ended went to the big electronic graveyard last week and getting used to a laptop takes a while.
    Two sets again. This time, RedBox´s 15th Century Burgundian Infantry and Knights sets 1 & 2.
    A lot of them can be added to the Ultima Ratio Swiss infantry sets or mixed with other Redbox WotR´s sets, the only small Problem, the embossed burgundian crosses need removing on a few of them.

    Set one.
    Mainly heavy infantry. Nearly half of them have Bannerols (Little pennons/flags) on their helmets. While this isn´t incorrect, a bannerol was carried by the Squadron leaders, Conductors and Chief de Chambre , it does seem excessive with nearly half of them having one. Still, it gives a choice as to which bod is a leader type and they are easy enough to remove.

    Set 2
    Mainly pikemen. Again, a lot of bannerols but again, easy to remove.
    The molded pikes? IMHO, too thick and a wee bit too short for my liking, not only that, one or two suffered from "brewers droop" so I replaced them with Florist wire.
    Not only are the molded pikes (IMHO) too short, thick or droopy but a couple of poses have got a lot of extra plastic between the pikemen´s bodies and the pikes. Along with the pikes, this all needed removing.

    The two at the front have had head swops

    Some of these, the pikes and halberds, will, along with a few others, form a Mk2 Burgundian pikeblock. The rest will fill out the infantry blocks.
