Very nice custom, Michael ...

Thanks for the photos!

I was happy to see that the new helmet is really a new helmet and is not just a re-issue the old chrome plated one! (see attached image)

now that helmet is a beauty...

Can you give us a full pic of the pike, and the material it was made of? I have an idea to use sate sticks as a basis for the pikes   ;D

this the ultimate Morion for my conquistadores :D

say, Michael, is your pikeman supposed to be spanish? (sorry, my knowledge of European history is v poor...i thought he might be english)

but its a beautiful custom....easily done but like i say again and again...its the headwear thats always the convincing point...

any pictures for us here, Richard?  ;)

Beautiful customs, Michael!

It appears that you may have actually eclipsed the old retired master himself ... David Hamer.

Thank you very much for sharing your wonderful custom figures.

All the best,
Richard
