Taking a break for the 3mm Cold War project, I set my sights on finishing my 6mm Landsknecht figures from Microworld Games. I had enough figures left over to complete two complete squares of Pike along with a supporting stand of Zweihanders and Handgunners for each. I opted to do these in a chaotic mass of colors to give me four complete regiments of Landskncecht mercenaries to face off against the Swiss and the Black Band.
As with the others I went with 1 large and 1 small stand for each block to essentially represent a three element deep formation.
The Zweihanders have a mix of shiny and dark armor to offset the colors.
I also found enough Crossbowmen left over to complete a normal stand to provide some added fire support. These units amount the balance of the figures in the lead pile, so I suppose it is time for an army display.
|All Eight Pike Regiments|
|This time with their Skirmishers deployed.|
|And finally with a firing line of Arquebus.|
|The entire army on Parade|
|I am really quite happy with how these guys turned out.|
These miniatures also pair well with other models to create a Renaissance Fantasy army to reflect a long dead Empire perhaps?
For rules I was planning on using Commands and Colors: Medieval but it appears to be taking its time getting released...
|Ah well, they will enjoy their new home until then.|
