Fantasy human painting and converting

Hello all. I'm new to the forum but have been collecting and painting Baccus and other ranges for quite some time now. In my search for a human 'Italian wars' style range to play the part of a well known fantasy human army, I've been singularly unlucky in finding anything suitable.

I've always loved baccus figures and felt the late medieval range could provide the basis of some landschnect-esque troops. First up, some mercenary pikemen before the  converting bug bit me:

And here are some crossbowmen from the same range who needed a bit more pazzaz:

Being a bit of a fantasy geek I'm pretty keen on the idea of fielding huge armies for dragon rampant, but find microworld's minis to be a bit too tiny to have the same presence. Anyone else here interested in the same stuff?

I'd like to know more about how you are doing it; you are getting some Landsknecht looking hats going there, I like them,

Nice looking pike and good conversions on the crossbowmen!

Nice figures. I really like the idea of fielding big armies in Dragon Rampant; any thoughts on good sources for the non-humans? Something Orkish would be great.

The Baccus Fantasy range has Elves, Dwarves, Goblins and Amazons.

Perfect Six do a small range of fantasy figures at the moment but it is growing.

Microworld are the only others I'm aware of.

6mm Fantasy isn't really my thing (so far).
