Demon World had some great sculpts for 15mm. It's good to see them back in production.

This unit is the start of a new fantasy army for me, as I've never had fantasy humans before.

Noble Pikemen

These figures are from the DemonWorld line, in The Empire range, now manufactured by Ral Partha Europe.

Noble Pikemen

I'll often come up with my own color schemes for fantasy units, but in the case of DemonWorld, I'm often impressed with the colors on the product label! That's what I did here – you can see the catalog picture and compare.

Noble Pikemen

Note that these are the noble pikemen. There's also ordinary pikemen in the range. The nobles get fancy plumes on their helmets, and probably count as elite troops.

Noble Pikemen

These figures were painted for us by our good friends in Sri Lanka, Fernando Enterprises. They painted to match the product picture.

Noble Pikemen

When the painted figures arrived from Sri Lanka, I based them on Mighty Armies plastic bases (Rebel Minis).

Noble Pikemen

I lucked out with some bonus figures in my pack, enough to add an extra unit base.

Noble Pikemen

I'm basing at three figures per stand, which is the 'new' standard for Mighty Armies.

Noble Pikemen

I used spackle around the figure bases, to contour them in with the bases.

I then painted the base-tops muddy brown, as I find that flocking looks best if it has an earth color beneath. I like to color-code my armies, so I colored the base edges silver with a Sharpie marker. Then I applied glue to the bases, dipped them in flock, and sealed the bases with a matte clearcoat spray.

Noble Pikemen

As you can see above, the pikemen come in two poses: pike at rest (vertical) and pike ready (slanted forward). I chose to keep the poses on different bases, so I can put 'fighting' pikemen in front and 'resting' pikemen in the rear. Of course, that's just for show. And one stand ended up with mixed pikes.

Noble Pikemen

These are the fighting pikemen, front and rear.

Noble Pikemen

And these are the resting pikemen, front and back.

Noble Pikemen

I created a command stand using three figures in the pack: a leader pointing, a bugler, and a standardbearer. Note the nice job the painters did on the banner.

Noble Pikemen

That's one unit down, many more to go!
