This began because I decided I did not like the look of my ECW Pike & Shot regiments.
The 8 Covenanter & 7 English Royalist P&S regiments all conformed to the basing & figure ratio demanded by the rules.
4 bases of 3 musketeers flanking a 4 figure command stand & a 4 figure pike stand.
But it just didn't look ….right.

So I decided to acquire 60 odd Tumbling Dice pikemen in order to add a 4 figure base to every P&S regiment.
For the look of the thing.

This will be a project for the next number of months.

Deep pikes are an expected look. And yet a lot of formations did not have pike deeper than musketeers.

So how will the unit look in the end? Will there be a 4-fig base of pike at the rear? Or will all the pike be in the centre and the command figures be at the front, or the rear?

You could always throw in some halberdiers to go for the Sturt Naseby look
