Landsknechte "Die schwarze bande"

Off the painting table this week are some Landsknechte pike blocks that I have been working on for a few weeks on and off. I have decided to have them in French service so all carry the cross of St Denis on their flags except the Black band...who were the easiest to paint! I have also added multi-coloured pikes for a bit of extra colour, the Old glory Landsknechte pikemen are quite nice and rank up well. I also decided to add a command group from some of the leftovers. I have based them on 60 x 60 bases so they can be used for Impetus and WAB AOC. I still have a handgunners, swordsmen, Gendarmes, a war wagon, some more infantry types and a cannon to complete the army.





cheers
Matt

  4. Great looking units Matt. Red pikes seem to be a theme in your armies.
