Next up it was time to start what will be the main bulk of the army - the halflings with pikes and pole weapons. These were mostly very simple conversions, mixing Perry heads and some heads I sculpted myself.
I plan to convert a second row of troops with weapons at a slightly steeper angle, so that I'll have an almost tercio look.
The halberdiers got their own campaign cook, armed with pots, pans and sausages.
These inital hobbits will form the nucleus of the pike formations. I need far more than this, but by now I've run out of bodies! I'm waiting for an additional box that I ordered, but until then I'll have to try to sculpt my own.
The halfling warband this far. It's starting to look good, though it's far too small and I also need to base them. I'm planning to order bases with pre-drilled holes for magnets, as it'll be a bit of a pain to individually drill hundreds of bases in the end. Now they need artillery, cavalry, and more infantry!
