Imperial Firelock Party – Citadel Miniatures

Ambience.

During the Renaissance was very common to see on the battlefields combined arms detachments. This model is inspired by the mercenary detachments of Landsknechts who became famous after the Battle of Pavia in 1525 in the Imperial ranks. The battle tactics of these units consisted in the classic closed square of spearmen and pikemen, and musketeers on the flanks who had greater mobility to support where necessary.

The armament of these units was varied, like their colorful uniforms. To the pikes and spears were added double edged short swords or “Katzbalger”, halberds and maces for the officers and muskets. Added some fantasy details because this models not belong to a proper range history.

In a near future this miniatures would form part of a diorama that is not yet designed. Here you can see how it is becoming the distribution of models with a central command group and musketeers on the corners:
