Germen mercenarys in Danish service #6

8 more German mercenarys with Pikes and Bills, this time in a more advancing/attacking position. The banner are a re-use from about a year ago.






If my time schedual holds I hope to paint 4 of them each day, so expect some more pictures in a day or so...

  1. Wonderful units Michael!

    Seeing your excellent and colourful painting, I'm very tempted to start up that Italian Wars project we've been talking about ...

    1. Thanks Oli !

      Glad you mentioned the mix of old and new as I wanted exactly that look as I imagine the more "in to fashon" German Mercenarys mixed up with the "took what gand dad left" Danish soldiers provided by the Danish Noblemen.
