Pike & Shotte

Products


  • Ashigaru Missile Troops Pike and Shotte

    The biggest change in the Sengoku period (1467-1603) would affect the role of missile troops in battle. At the start of the period, these were all armed with the yumi (bow) and fought in coordinated units to pepper the enemy with their arrows. This bow, like the equivalent English Longbow, took many years training to perfect but was deadly when used correctly. Due to the training needed there were never as many yumi armed troops as a daimyo may have wanted!

    This product contains:

    20 plastic Ashigaru with bow and arquebus
    Decal sheet with Takeda clan markings
    Assembly leaflet
    Plastic bases

    This would change with the introduction of firearms in 1543 via some Portuguese merchants. It did not take long for clever daimyos to see the opportunity they provided. As in Europe, the relative lack of training needed to use one meant Teppo (muskets) rapidly replaced the yumi as the missile weapon of choice.

    From having no gunpowder weapons before their introduction within 60 years teppo would outnumber yumi on the battlefield by a ratio of 4 or 5 to 1. However the yumi did not disappear, there would always be yumi armed troops amongst the teppo to help protect them while they reload.

  • Ashigaru Spearmen Pike & Shotte

    Ashigaru Spearmen Pike & Shotte

     

    Ashigaru (literally “light foot”) were so named as they had lighter armour than the Samurai. They also formed the bulk of the armies of the day. Each Samurai was expected to provide two armed Ashigaru. Many of these would be armed with the yari (spear).
     
    This product contains:
     
    20 plastic Ashigaru with Yari spears
    Decal sheet with Takeda clan markings
    Assembly leaflet
    Plastic bases
    These are not the pike blocks of contemporary Europe as the Ashigaru were trained to fight in a looser formation, travel quicker and their spear was for slicing and thrusting. Many a battle was won by the Ashigaru, especially if cavalry were foolish enough to attack them from the front.
     
    As time went on in the Sengoku (1467-1603) period the proportion of Ashigaru spearmen increased. Their relative ease and speed of training meant they were easier to replace (and cheaper). Marching into battle with drums beating, worn on the backs of troops and beaten by the man behind, and displaying their masters Mon on their sashimono, they would be a formidable sight to behold. Tokugawa Ieyasu, the Shogun that pacified Japan, was himself the son of an Ashigaru.

  • Count Tilly

    Johann Tserclaes, Count of Tilly, commanded the Imperial forces during the Thirty Years War. He had a string on important victories against the Protestants but was then defeated by forces led by the King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden. Along with Albrecht von Wallenstein he was one of two chief commanders of the Holy Roman Empire's forces.

  • English Civil War Regular Highlanders

    Not all of the Highlanders that fought in the Civil War ran amok in wild mobs! Oh no, the Covenanter forces fielded units from the Highlands who had no love for Montrose nor the King. Clan emnities run deep in Scotland, so the chance to strike back at traditional enemies meant many men were formed into regular pike and shot units.

    There is little information or pictoral evidence of these troops, but Warlord has depicted them in Highland attire, but carrying weapons appropriate to regular troops - pike and shot. Have fun painting these plaid wearing troops, they make a great change from dull Covenanter Hodden grey!

    Blister pack contains 8 metal miniatures - each can be armed with either a steel pike, lochaber axe or a musket (8 pike are included and 3 sprues of Lochaber axes and muskets).

  • Harquebusiers boxed set

    The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries saw the rise of the pike-armed infantryman as well as the increased firepower of black powder weapons on the field of battle.

    The heavy "shock" cavalry could either be fended off with long pikes or shot down, no matter how thick their armour.

    This change of events led commanders to rethink their cavalry tactics.

    As arquebuses and muskets became cheaper to make and handier to carry in their shortened form, it was found that well drilled horsemen could move quickly across any battlefield and add their fire power at a decisive point.

    Mounted troops thus equipped with short firearms, carbines as they were later to be called, were called harquebusiers and were raised in great quantities throughout Europe in a series of conflicts.

    The men were armoured where possible, and carried a good sword, but often used the Caracole tactic of discharging their carbines and wheeling away to reload whilst another rank trotted forward to give fire.

    On the battlefield they often supported the heavy shock cavalry by disrupting enemy charges and firing upon pike formations until they are vulnerable to a charge.

    Warlord's boxed set portrays typical mounted harquebusiers of the late 16th and early 17th century, and can represent troops of many nationalities.

    Contains: -

    12 multi-part metal Harquebusiers (including command)

  • Highland Clansmen boxed set

    The skirl of the pipes is perhaps one of the eeriest sounds that you can hear, more so if you were a Covenanter soldier in the Civil Wars in Britain 1642-1650 awaiting the approach of Montrose' wild Highlanders!

    The Scottish Clans were a throw-back to an earlier time. Small, tight family groups who eked out tough lives on hill farms supplemented at times by raiding from other Clans in long standing feuds. When times were very hard young men may go overseas and enlist in a foreign army, many reaching senior rank on the Continent. However, when the fiery cross was paraded through their lands all tools were downed and ancient but deadly weapons taken down from the wall as man after man put on his plaid and bonnet and went to join his Clan and Laird in battle!

    Warlord Games' Highlanders are depicted as they would form for battle. The Laird and his close family in the front ranks, ready to fire a volley then charge, whilst the middle ranks prepare their Lochaber axes, bows, muskets and broadswords. The poorest, youngest or oldest fill in at the back shouting encouragement and hurling stones.

    There is little one can do but hope that a good volley can stop these atavistic wildmen, for if they close their deadly, flashing dirks will soon finish the business...

    Warlord Games' Highlander Boxed Set contains: -

    18 random metal Highland Clansmen (including command group) armed with lochaber axes, bows, muskets and assorted close combat weaponry!

  • Landsknechts Pikemen

    Landsknechts Pikemen box contains:

    • Plastic components to make either 30 Pikemen or 24 Pikemen and 5 Arquebusiers
    • Command sprue with options for officers, standard bearers, drummers, etc.
    • Plastic bases.
    • Background guide with 5 full-colour flags.

    Landsknechts were instigated by the Holy Roman Emperor, Maximillian I, as a reaction to the Swiss Mercenary Pikemen that had dominated battlefields for decades before the Italian Wars (1494-1559). Over the course of the Italian Wars, however, the Landsknecht tactics adapted far more than the Swiss and the use of firearms in conjunction with the pike would give them the edge, at least tactically. Maximillian was keen to give the men freedom to wear what they wanted, and this resulted in plumes, slashed sleeves and bright colours.

    The figures in this Warlord Games box set can be used to represent the Landsknechts raised in Germany or the Tyrol as well as early Swiss pike regiments.

  • Ottoman Janissaries Boxed Set

    The Janissaries (from the Turkish for ‘new soldier’) were the elite infantry of the Ottoman Empire. The Janissary Corps was founded in 1383 by Sultan Murad I to provide him with well-disciplined and loyal troops for his expansionist campaigns. They were recruited from Christian vassal states of the Ottoman Empire in Europe by the ‘devsirme’ system of taking young boys aged 6-14 years and converting them to Islam. These children were indoctrinated and raised in an environment of harsh discipline and training, ideal for the creation of a fighting force.

    The Corps was divided into ‘Ortas’, the equivalent of a battalion, and at the height of the Janissaries’ powers in the late 1500’s there were 196 ortas. These were divided between frontier troops (Cemaat), Sultan’s Household and Bodyguard formations (Beyliks), provincial reserves (Sekbans) and cadet troops (Ajemi). Each Orta was led by a Cobaci or ‘Soup Maker’, a title that indicated humility before the Sultan, and an Asci Usta (Master Cook). Culinary traditions played an important role throughout the Janissary Corps as successful leaders should be able to provide for their men.

    Janissaries discipline and impressive war record notwithstanding, they were also at the forefront of many military advances. They wore uniforms and distinctive headgear at a time when army uniforms were practically unheard of. They were the first military units to march to music, and also the first to widely use firearms. The fact they were salaried fighters and lived in organised barracks was also unusual from a western standpoint. The social status of the Janissary Corps was also noteworthy; being neither free men nor ordinary slaves they created their own social class. The Agha, head of the Corps, was one of the most powerful men in the Ottoman Empire, and over the years the Janissaries came to fill important government roles and trades in society. This increase in power was to prove their downfall as they effectively became kingmakers, killing Sultans who they did not approve of and becoming a corrupt parody of their earlier glories and a law unto themselves. The end for the Janissary Corps came in 1826, when Sultan Mahmud II initiated the ‘Auspicious Incident’ which saw the execution of thousands of Janissaries and the disbandment of the Corps.

    This Warlord games Pike & Shotte box set provides 24 metal miniatures that can represent a Janissary Orta

    • 12 metal Janissaries armed with sword and shield (includes a command group of officer, standard bearer, drummer and sergeant)
    • 12 metal Janissaries armed with arquebus, led by an officer.

  • Pike & Shotte - Landsknechts missile troops

    The late 15th and early 16th centuries in Europe were defined by near-constant warfare. National ‘standing armies’ were unheard of and the ambitions of empires were reliant on the mercenaries they could afford to hire.
     
    Landsknechts were instigated by the Holy Roman Emperor, Maximillian I, as a reaction to the Swiss mercenary pikemen that had dominated battlefields for decades before the Italian Wars (1494-1559).
     
    They would be found in most armies in Western Europe of the time, even appearing in the British Isles in the service of Henry VIII. Clashes between rival Landsknecht regiments were particularly bloody, becoming known as ‘Bad War’.
     
    The most striking aspect of a Landsknecht force was their outlandish dress. Maximillian was keen to give the men freedom to wear what they wanted, and this resulted in plumes, slashed sleeves and bright colours.
     
    The Landsknechts, as well as other troops, made good use of the crossbow and then latterly the new arquebus black powder weapon as skirmish screens ahead of the blocks of pikemen or as tactical units in their own right. They were equally useful during sieges.
     
    The figures in this boxed set can be used to represent the Landsknechts raised in Germany or other nations of the period.
     
    This box set contains:
     
    Plastic components to make 30 Landsknechts with either arquebus or crossbow.

    The toughest of a rough bunch were the veteran Doppelsöldner – soldiers on double pay. Their extra payment was for volunteering to fight in the front ranks and the inherent risk that entailed. The trick was surviving to claim the extra pay!
     
    Doppelsöldner would most often be armed with the ranged arquebus or crossbow and arrayed in front of the main blocks of pikemen. Alternatively they may be armed with the vicious six foot long two-handed swords, the Zweihänders, or equally long halberds. Zweihänder-armed Landsknechts would generally be found in the front ranks of the pike blocks or occasionally detached to form their own unit for special roles as well as providing protection for the unit’s colour party. The famous German mercenaries, the Black Band, included 2,000 two-handed swordsmen.

  • Pike & Shotte - Landsknechts with Zweihanders

  • Pike & Shotte Cavalry

    The 17th Century saw large standing armies in action all over Europe, in numbers previously undreamt of, and huge numbers of infantry, artillery and cavalry were raised. The cavalry of the period were mostly of the heavy variety; big horses that could barge other enemy cavalry and intimidate infantry, while carrying a determined rider protected by, at the very least, a back-and-breastplate, and usually a sturdy helmet.

    The cavalryman’s offensive arms started with at least one pistol, a sword or pole axe for close-quarter fighting, and possibly a carbine. Cavalry were formed into squadrons, regiments and finally into brigades and were usually employed en masse in a cavalry wing on either flank of the infantry line.

    If a cavalry wing routed its opponents, that left it free to attack the flanks of engaged enemy infantry. This could be a battle winner, unless the jubilant horsemen galloped over the hills and far away in pursuit of plunder!

    These Warlord Games models can built to represent Royalist or Parliamentarian cavalry in the English Civil Wars or to be fielded as one of the many and varied regiments during the Thirty Years War.

  • Pike & Shotte Dragoons

    The Dragoons fighting in the English Civil Wars and Thirty Years War are really mounted infantry, musketeers mounted on poorer quality horses. Never as well paid or equipped as their comrades in arms in the cavalry and most likely despised by the footsloggers, the Dragoon had a job to do nevertheless, joining Forlorn Hope parties and guarding the flanks and rear of the army. Often the Dragoons would move forward smartly and then dismount to fight, forming regular musket blocks on the field and responding to drum calls as would any infantry of the time.

    Firelock companies were raised throughout the Civil Wars for a variety of purposes. Originally formed to fight in the wild bogs of Ireland where a flintlock was more easily handled than the clumsy matchlock, firelock-armed musketeers grew more common as the Civil Wars progressed, and by mid to late war, whole companies were fielded - for the Royalists, Legge's who fought at Edgehill, Rupert's and Maurice's redcoats and Sandford's from Ireland. Parliament issued them liberally and many of the New Model Army had whole companies so armed, and later, whole regiments. The Scots Covenanter forces also used the firelock to good effect.

  • Pike & Shotte Hardback Rulebook

    The 17th Century saw catastrophic war in Europe, a conflict so savage that its like had hitherto had been unknown, especially to the civilian population. The Thirty Years War ravaged whole countries and populations, whilst the first truly national armies marched and counter marched over Europe. Meanwhile, in Britain, the King was losing power to an aggressive, self-assured Parliament, galvanised be new ways of thinking, by religion and by personal ambition. The two parties were on a collision course to war and when it came in 1642 caught the country unaware and unprepared. The hastily raised armies clashed many times before Parliament triumphed, then succumbed to in-fighting, before the Restoration of Charles II. Warlord brings you all the main protagonists for both wars, Grand divisions, Tercios and whole wings of glittering cavalry are yours to command, led by gentlemen of honour whose names are remembered today, men who commanded and fought in the front ranks: Rupert, Fairfax, Wallenstein, Gustavus Adolphus, Montrose and MacColla ‘the Devastator’.

    The rulebook covering the Italian Wars, Tudor Wars, Thirty Years War, English Civil Wars, and The War of the Grand Alliance this 208 page hardback book is chock full of exquisitely painted miniatures, army lists and battle report.

    With 208 pages in the book you’ll be ket busy for some time digesting the rules or drooling over the photographs or beautifully painted miniatures.

  • Pike & Shotte Infantry Regiment

    The 17th Century saw the assembling of large regular armies equipped and supplied by the state. Many units, though not all, were uniformly attired for the first time, and formed into companies and regiments then finally brigaded together into tercios or battalias.

    Formations on the field could vary enormously as the situation dictated. On paper, a regiment may have ten companies of 100 men each but in reality, due to sickness, casualties and lack of money, regiments could be as small. The norm was to have two equal ‘wings’ of musketeers on the flanks and a central block of pikemen armed with sharp 16 foot ash pikes. While the slow-firing musketeers whittled down the enemy, the pikes’ primary role was to provide them with protection from cavalry.

    This Warlord Games box contains all you need to field a pike and musket-armed regiment of the period, be it for the Thirty Years War that ravaged Europe or the English Civil Wars where Royalist battled Parliament for control of the country.

  • Pike & Shotte James Graham, The Marquis of Montrose

    The Marquis of Montrose was perhaps the most tragic, brilliant and romantic figure of the British civil wars.He became the King's Champion in all of Scotland and fought a brilliant campaign against extraordinary odds battling the grim Government Covenanter forces.

    With a cadre of three Irish regiments, largely veterans from the Continent and aided by an ever changing alliance of Highland Clans, Montrose smashed army after army, sometimes in pitched battle, other times in skirmishes and raids.

    He was a very accomplished general, winning so much with so little, time and again. It was his ability to enthuse and inspire his men and keep them together long enough for a common cause that perhaps was his greatest virtue, though his personal bravery in a madcap campaign must also be applauded.

    Warlord Games have captured Montrose reigning in his horse, telescope in hand , once again attempting to out- fox his wily Scot enemies.

Because of their experience the Irish Brigade were arguably the most deadly unit in Britain at the time,wild and desperate men who knew that defeat as Catholics in a Protestant land could mean execution or worse.

  • Pike & Shotte Mortar

    There were few more terrifying weapons in the 17th Century than the fearsome blast of the mortar bomb. Employed largely at sieges, mortars spat their fizzing, hissing shells high into the air clearing the tallest walls or towers to crash into streets or houses below before exploding in a shattering blast. They terrorised garrisons and townsfolk alike, sometimes leading to the civilians petitioning the city's governor to surrender and avoid any more damage. Rarely used in the field, mortars needed a skilled crew to set the fuses, and lob the shells accurately without blowing themselves to kingdom come!

    National armies were practically unheard of – with most armies being formed by those who could afford to keep men in the field. For this reason the size and quality of regiments varied greatly, and uniforms consisted largely of civilian dress unless the Colonel was wealthy enough to equip his men in the same manner. Many armies during this field employed mercenaries to fill out their ranks and here we have a mercenary captain figure ready to lead your regiments into action atop his fine steed.

Cromwell went on to command armies all over Britain, culminating in devastating and bloody conquests in Scotland and Ireland, crushing Royalist resistance wherever it was met. Oliver Cromwell showed himself to be an able general, a superb strategist and a focus for reform in turbulent times. His military legacy was the emergence of the red-coated British army and a navy that would challenge all other nations to supremacy.

  • Pike & Shotte Parliament Infantry

    From the hurriedly raised regiments and tarried bands of 1642, the rebel army of Parliament grew to be an awesome fighting force with the Venice red coated New Model Army driving all before them. By 1650 the New Model Army was arguably the best trained and effective force in Europe.

  • Pike & Shotte Prince Rupert of the Rhine

    Born in Prague in 1619 the son of Frederick V, Elector of Palatinate, Prince Rupert was the nephew of King Charles I. Rupert first campaigned in the Thirty Years War at the age of 14, and was held hostage in Austria for three years until released with Charles' aid. He came to England with his brother, Maurice, in 1642. This fantastic sculpt of Prince Rupert shows him leading his cavalrymen into the charge along with his fearsome dog Boye.

  • Pike & Shotte Robert Deveraux, the 3rd Earl of Essex

    Robert Devereux, eldest son of the 2nd Earl of Essex who was famously executed by Elizabeth I, was born in 1591. Although one of the wealthiest men in England at the time of the English Civil War, he was never a favourite at the court of Charles I. He gained his early military experience fighting in the Thirty Years War for the Protestant cause in Germany and the Low Countries. Essex firmly tied himself to the cause of Parliament by warning the five MPs about to be arrested on the Kings orders. He was in fact the highest ranking noble to support Parliament and was made Lord General of all Parliament forces in 1642.

  • Pike & Shotte Royalist Cavalry

    Royalist cavalry earned a well deserved reputation for ferocity from their first clash with their Parliament foes at Powick Bridge in September 1642 to the last major battles of the Civil wars. Drawn up only three deep, their tactic was to approach steadily then spur their horses into the enemy at a gallop, not using their pistols until they literallypressed the muzzles against the bodies of the Roundhead troopers. Well led, well motivated and superbly mounted, the Royalist horse was the terror of the battlefield until Parliament learned how to stop the ferocious charges and turn Royalist indiscipline against them.

  • Pike & Shotte Saker Cannon

    The Saker was the mainstay of the artillery park. It was large and fearsome enough to pound the enemy in the field and manageable enough to actually arrive on the battlefield. Crewed by a couple of specialists and a team of labourers who had to swab the gun and haul it back into position after each shot, artillery were much valued by generals of both sides. Their material effect on the enemy was often negligible, but the morale effect profound.

  • Pike & Shotte Scots Covenanters

    There is a compelling thrill about the sight of a Scottish Government army drawn up for battle. Dour-faced hardmen from the lowlands of Scotland drawn up in their trademark Hodden Grey uniforms, topped with their distinctive blue-knitted bonnets, the Covenanters fought hard in many bloody battles of the civil wars. Indeed they routed the English forces in the BishopsWars leading up to the great civil war where they first sided with Parliament, fighting mainly in the North, most famously at Marston Moor. Then they made a momentous decision and sold the captured Charles I, their King, to his bitter enemies, Parliament. This unholy alliance could not last and the Covenant army found itself allied with a doomed Royalist cause in the second and third civil wars.

  • Pike & Shotte Scots Frame Gun

    Scotland might not have been one of the richest lands in Europe, but when its well organised army marched to war it went well equipped with artillery. The Frame gun was a Scots favourite for it was small, compact and easy to manoeuvre. They could be single barrelled, double-barrelled or even quadruple barrelled, and they could fire round or hail shot and would be able to keep up a quick rate of fire. Scots armies seemed to field many of these useful machines of destruction, indeed some people called small guns such as these 'murderers'.

  • Pike & Shotte Scots Lancers

    Scotland's Covenanter armies fought hard in all of the three civil wars in the British Isles but their cavalry, whilst well-equipped and well-paid, suffered from a lack of good quality cavalry horses. Even so they battled hard against superior numbers and quality of horse, and to make up for their deficiencies in horseflesh they liberally equipped themselves with pistols, sticking them in sashes and boot-tops to fire them at their foe in close quarters.

  • Pike & Shotte Specialists

    Gunnery in the 17th Century was part science and part craft, but there was no substitute for experience in the field. The Master Gunner would be a civilian, richly dressed, well paid and not above swapping sides or returning to Europe's wars if the pay was not to his liking. Marksmen were rare in the Civil wars, but turn up in certain Swedish regiments in the Thirty Years' War in a regular fashion. Marksmen were principally used in sieges, where they were employed in towers to pick off besieging gunners and specialists, or in the siege lines where they tried to do precisely the same thing back.

  • Pike & Shotte Wars of Religion Infantry Regiment

    The 16th Century was a period of conflict and discovery. All across Europe armies were formed to extend Empires and consolidate power. At the forefront was the might of the Spanish Empire which had developed the Tercio as a battlefield formation used to devastating effect. Pike blocks held the balance of power, often consisting of thousands of men.

    These were supported by troops with firearms to disorder enemy formations before contact, allowing the pikemen to drive all before them. Pikes were generally in excess of 16 feet long, and the strongest men were pressed into the ranks of this arm.

    The firearms which provided the support developed rapidly through the century from primitive arquebuses to muskets, and the musketeer was to play an increasing important role. National armies were practically unheard of; most armies being formed by those who could afford to keep men in the field. For this reason the size and quality of regiments varied greatly, and uniforms consisted largely of civilian dress unless the Colonel was wealthy enough to equip his men in the same manner.

    This Warlord Games box set contains all you need to field a Pike & Shotte Infantry regiment for many of the European powers, whether resisting the Ottoman menace from the East or conquering the New World to the West. Spanish Conquistadores, English Tudor armies or Christian defenders of Malta can all be represented by the figures within.

  • Pike and Shotte Ordnance Battery

    It was a rare thing for a general in the 17th Century to take to the field without an artillery train to intimidate and pulverise the enemy lines. These cannon and mortars were terrifying weapons, belching smoke and flames with a frightening roar that no simple country lad was likely to have heard before. The cannon’s range of a thousand yards or more, although inaccurate at such extreme distances, could deliver its solid iron cannon balls to smash through the tightly packed enemy ranks to devatasting effect.

    A wily master gunner would position his guns where they could do the most damage whilst not risking them to the enemy – it being a great shame to lose ones guns in battle, not least because of the enormous cost incurred in manufacturing, transporting and crewing them.

    This Warlord Games box has three mighty weapons carefully protected by well-built gabion and wicker work defences, with the gunpowder barrels safely stowed in pits. Served by stoic crews and supported by a Sentinel, Master Gunner and an Engineer, these will wreak havoc in your opponent’s battle lines!

  • Swedish Cavalry boxed set

    This box re-uses the popular ECW plastic cavalry, which forms the basis of this box.

    We have added two new splendid models in metal, a characterful Captain of horse and a metal Cornet, both full of dash and Swedish boldness!

    The Swedes, and the Finns who fought so well alongside them, were sometime equipped with the savage looking curved sabre rather than the standard broadsword, and we have included 3 metal sabre arms to equip your ranks.

    The characteristic metal Swedish style helmet is also included. We have put in 10 of this Single barred and fluted helmet so that you can give them all this headgear if you really want, though a mix of helmets and soft hats seems common at the time.

    Last but not least, we have included six musketeers who are modelled firing the dreaded Swedish salvoe, as the Swedes attached commanded units of shot to intersperse with the cavalry squadrons, so that will give them some fire support and confound your enemy...

    Of particular note in Gustaf's army were the horsemen recruited from Finland, their fearsome battle cry -Hakkaa paalle! (Hack them down!) would strike fear into the hearts of any Imperial foe.
    This unit allows you to make units of Swedish horse, German horse or the feared Finnish horsemen.

  • Swedish Infantry Regiment boxed set

    The army of Gustavus Adolphus was a truly awesome foe. Tough hard hitting cavalry, mobile artillery and a solid fearsome core of infantry, the Swedish army of the Thirty Years War was arguably the best in the world at the time. Never a populous nation, the Swedes padded out their forces with allies and mercenaries where they could, but their native born infantry earned a reputation as hard fighting stoic men, who rarely ran away from often greater odds.

    Warlord's dour Swedes include "swinefeather" musket rests, helmets for all the troops, amazing full colour banners and flags, extra amoured pikemen and a characterful and well dressed command group. This in addition to our highly acclaimed Pike & Shotte plastic sprues gives you a great-looking Thirty Years War Swedish regiment.
