Germen mercenarys in Danish service #4

Hard work painting sins yeaterday, and the fact that the wife are out of town for a couple of days;). I managed to finish 8 more minis, in total 12 minis for my 36 minis strong Germen mercenarys unit in Danish service...all the back row of the unit.


I cut some corners on these as some of them have been in other Danish units but now they been relocated:) as are the flag a old one that I painted for my danes about a year ago.





I have laied out the bases that will be used. 9 bases with 4 infantry minis for tha main unit in total 36 minis and 2 bases on each flan for the crossbowmen 4 on each base in total 16 minis.

As I got some spare time during this weekend I will now try to finish the 16 crossbowmen, some of them are also re-use of old minis, but they have to have some major repair painting...

      You absolutely got a point about the head, its more obvious in the picture then IRL. I might have to switch that...

  12. They look great so far and will be spectacular all ranked up!
    I have a very special fondness for landknechts having spent many a day re-enacting those very soldiers.
