Painting the 'mercenaries' for my Lion Rampant 28mm plastics, and I don't know which scheme to choose

On the left The Free company of Belgrade.

On the right "Captain" Messi of Barcalona


The sprues come with helmets with flags on, ridiculous plumes, tabors etc, so I am going to a little overboard. I'm bored of painting historical peasants in a tabard!

Painted these two bodies up to post for opinions – hence no arms/head, as I will have to repaint one of them! The unit will be 9 pikes (acting as Foot Serjeants in the rules) a standard bearer, a drummer, and an officer in as heroic pose as I can get it to do!

I like the red and white stripes the best. There's not enough contrast between the blue and red stripes. Too close in value.

Why not do one unit of each?

I only have 1 unit of pikes!

Go to town! Do both in your unit plus maybe throw in some yellow and black as well as yellow and blue. Make it into a pike parade. grin

Go with Barcelona.

For the tie!

See, now I'm thinking yellow/black….

I've got yellow/blue livery in the Yorkists.

Sabre, the mercenary company names aren't accidental. The Belgrade unit have a red star as their symbol, something Europeans here will know of…
