I have decided to add some minis to my Danish Kalmar Union War force, this time there will be some German mercenarys with a Landsknecht flavour.

Inspired by the Paul Dolnstein drawing of Landsknechts in Danish service fighting Swedish Allmoge in 1502 I will try to build me some German Mercenarys using a mix of Perry WotR Plastics and old GW Empire plastic bits…I hope it all will work out…

As far as I have found information the danes hired individuals, groups and the accational company and ofcourse artillery/seige experts of German mercenarys. The infantry was probably mixed up with the Danish infantry provided by the Danish Nobles, as the mercenary knights was mixed up with the Danish Knights.

So my units will have a mix of old and new equipment/clothes in a ragtag look. I hope it will look good in the end…

I built the minis from Perry WotR plastics and old GW plastic bits. You can find a picture of the first 4 painted minis at my blog.

Best regards Michael
