Some of mine were quite bad, flash-wise. I still like them though.

Are the Pike and shotte things from warlord the same as the war of the roses?

I can't get a good picture of the war of roses sprue. I need some pikemen which look like Riccos republican guard.

I also saw some pictures of some pretty sweet cavalry which I wanted.

No. They are 17th century, not 15th century.

I don't think the perry war of the roses set is really suitable for that. Maybe the four fully-armoured guys you get would be OK, but the rest of the set isn't armoured enough. And you'd still need to convert them anyway to give them pikes.

I don't know of any models that really look like the ricco's pikemen.

They are from the early 15th century range, so not War of the Roses. But close enough really. Just a bit old-fashioned.

I just want to use them as GW light cav with spears (and javelins)

shame about the Ricco's. Might have to just buy some more of them.
Christ! they are 30 quid for 12 of them.

I would totally believe those as Light Cav.

As far as Ricco's, I'm not sure I know of anyone who makes pikemen that heavily armoured.

You may be able to use or convert some of the more heavily armoured Front Rank WotR figures. Look into WR64 & 65:

and WR 92, 93, 94:

Or maybe even...

Be warned, though. Those particular Crusader Miniatures figures are a bit on  the thin side, especially compared to GW figures. The Front Rank are bigger and beefier. Still not quite GW, but they're even a big bigger than the Perry figures.

Front Rank also do some nice figures for light cav. That's what I've used for one of my light cav units.

I'll be using 44ish, two units of 24 spearmen need doing. If the rest is enough you can have them if I get them.

I presume you have emailed/hassled them

Nope, given the weather conditions I'm quite lenient towards companies sending me stuff, plus I've used them  in the past and they seem to just take a while. I did check my bank to make sure I had actually paid them for the stuff, and I have so..

Those pikes are great (they are the ones I use), but: you need to cut them down if using them with Ricco's! They have very small pikes.


See, there's another dick joke. Sort of.

I thought 10 CM seemed a bit big.
I'm really pleased though, I really think they look similar enough! might try to do GS scarf round some heads, and GS cloth on their pikes...
So a big thumbs up to 023 for his help

Now just to figure out how to actually buy those light cav too..

Which ones? They don't sell plastic horses, other than as part of the Napoleonic cavalry set.
