Pikemen of the English Civil War Society wait for the order to move forward and engage the enemy.

I'm not sure which regiment they represent, it may be Lord Hopton's Regiment of Foote.

Taken at the Liverpool Military Show.

I love these enactments, Les. We have them in the States as well. The guys clearly are "playing" their roles. Great capture.
Les Auld: I've got to agree about these events, and plenty of people enjoying themselves as well. Great photo opportunities.
I'm with Ginnie here, I really like these kind of shots Les. smile
Les Auld: Appreciate the comment, I really like taking these type of shots.
I tried one of these helmets on once. They are unbelievably heavy. Nice capture. Cheers, Dave
Les Auld: Wielding a sixteen foot pike all afternoon takes it out of you as well, you need to be quite fit for this game.

Thanks for the comment.
Interresting and a good picture, well composed with a great management of colors !
Les Auld: Thanks Zeb, had to desaturate the background a bit to emphasise the figures in the front.
