John Swann and Philemon Groves

pikeman7

John Swann is a stone mason. He is also of a strong Puritan persuasion. His large frame and strong arms make him an ideal candidate to carry the Pike, and his Puritan world view lead him to be a dedicated follower of the Parliamentarian cause.

John’s best friend and fellow stone mason Philemon Groves is also a Puritan, though he is of a slightly more radical persuasion to his friend. Philemon can at times be a rabble rouser and trouble maker, but he is a determined fighter, the sort of man you want at your side in a pike block.

I have no W.I.P shots of these guys, but here is a photo of them ranked up.

Both figures are Warlord Games Pike and Shotte plastics. John Swann has a Gripping Beast Dark Ages Warrior head and Philemon Groves has the face from one of the miniatures in the Perry Miniatures American Civil War Confederate Infantry set.

  1. Very nice and effective conversions. I’ve never tried head/face swops but after seeing those I might give it a go.

    • Thanks Matt. The face swap thing works pretty well on these if you want to keep the long hair. I just use the plastic glue as a filler. Helps to give more variety.
