TYW Tercio

I have picked up a quantity of the wonderful 10mm figures from Pendraken.  First forces I am having a go at are for the Thirty Years War.

This is a Spanish Tercio from the early period - a central pike block that was supported on the four corners by shot.  It was intended to be able to defend itself from any direction.

    1. Thanks for the comment John. I’d always wanted to do one and can’t see me doing it in 28mm so I’m very happy to have found a good scale to do it in. The 10mm figures on 15mm Baroque scale bases also helps with rhetoric effect.
