Pike and Shotte - Landsknecht Pikemen Plastic

The late 15th and early 16th centuries in Europe were defined by near-constant warfare. National ‘standing armies’ were unheard of and the ambitions of empires were reliant on the mercenaries they could afford to hire.
This box contains:
  • Plastic components to make either 30 Pikemen or 24 Pikemen and 5 Arquebusiers
  • Command sprue with options for officers, standard bearers, drummers, etc.
  • Plastic bases.
  • Background guide with 5 full-colour flags.
Landsknechts were instigated by the Holy Roman Emperor, Maximillian I, as a reaction to the Swiss Mercenary Pikemen that had dominated battlefields for decades before the Italian Wars (1494-1559).
Over the course of the Italian Wars, however, the Landsknecht tactics adapted far more than the Swiss and the use of firearms in conjunction with the pike would give them the edge, at least tactically.
Maximillian was keen to give the men freedom to wear what they wanted, and this resulted in plumes, slashed sleeves and bright colours. The figures in this boxed set can be used to represent the Landsknechts raised in Germany or the Tyrol as well as early Swiss pike regiments.

Plastic miniatures, supplied unpainted. Some assembly is required.
