Cromwell's New Model Army Pikes
After finishing the Irish plate the next one I am doing is the New Model Army, especially uniformed for there time in Ireland. I have gone for the traditional looking pikeman but without the armour, which most pike men got rid of as it was heavy and very uncomfortable. I have gone for the ribbon ties which would be in the regiments lining colours and he has the look of someone who has fought a little to long.
