15mm Italian wars XI. Landsknecht Arquebus.

Here are some of the Arquebus to  complete the first landsknecht infantry formation. I have studied  the old woodcuts and art work of the period showing Arquebus formations on the wings of the pikeblocs, so i will base them in two 12 figure blocs one each side of the pike formation.


 I made a small order from museum miniatures, a pack of Arquebus ,which are here in the photo mixed with old glory, the multi barrel organ gun and the mounted command pack Maximilian which i am going to paint as Francis 1st command base( The mtd command figure just cries out to be a king)
      Museum minis are very nice quality sculpts and a little larger than old glory, the only draw back is there packs of infantry are pretty much identical figures in same pose but one pack mixed in with the old glory and painting them in different colours and it is not that noticeable!
