28mm Landsknecht Command


Just a short post today. This time out we have a Landsknecht command stand to add to my slooowly growing Italian Wars collection.


The mounted Oberste is from Wargames Foundry. He's casually draping an Imperial banner over his shoulder while haranguing one of his doppelsöldners ('double-pay' men) who, in turn, is traipsing alongside him with an imposing Zweihänder sword. The swordsman is from Warlord, previously of Pro Gloria Miniatures.


Banner is from Pete' Flags. 




This last shot is of the Landsknecht commander following behind some Swiss Reisläufer from Bern with their evidently peckish 'mascot'. 



Thanks for dropping by folks. Have a great week!

  1. That Pro Gloria range is really something, and it's good to see those old Perry sculpts from the Foundry as well. As for the painting and basing, nailed it!

    1. Thanks Ev, the Pro Gloria/Warlord castings are very nice and the older Foundry is still the reference standard IMO.

  3. Beautiful work, glad to see Pro Gloria's figures still in production. Now if only that plastic landsknecht box had gotten off the ground... :)

    1. Thanks Bill. Yeah, I've been wondering what ever happened to that plastic set.

    1. Yeah, when I saw the officer I knew he had to have someone to bend the ear. :)

  7. Fantastic vignette, I love the attention to detail like the actual pole the banner is attached to.

  8. That my friend is a thing of beauty. It's good to see you've observed the rule that pink and green should not be seen without black armour in between! :-)

    1. Haha! Yes, if the Landsknechts knew anything it was how to coordinate their colours. :)

  12. Fantastic stuff, the detail and crispness is a joy.

    I can really see where the Perry twins got their inspiration for the Warhammer Empire figures they did for GW.

    1. Thank you Jamie. Yes, I think the Perry Renaissance range (especially their Landsknechts) is one of the reference standards for the period.
