|A regiment for the ECW.|
These guys were part of a bunch of boxes I bought from Warlord earlier in the year. They were having a special on bulk purchases and I wanted to check out their ECW plastics. I'm not going to be collecting an ECW army any time soon, but I've had an unreasonable desire to build a pike block for a long time.
The plastics are, in some ways, standard Warlord fare, and in others very different. On the familiar side, they are the standard plastic that Warlord uses. They clean up well and are pretty sturdy. There was no flash and pretty minimal mold lines, though some are difficult to clean. I found the match locks, especially, problematic as it was often difficult to figure out where the mold lines were.

I like the box, but I think I'll have to buy my models differently if I want the pike blocks I've dreamed of. I also have three models left over which will go into the bitz box for some later project. This kit will make a good core of an army, when it comes time to build one, but it will need some augmentation, even in the rank and file, which is not normally the case with Warlord's kits.
