DBA 1500-1900 22.French 1494-1525

At last ! We've finished our Italian Wars French & Imperials, so here we go......
Italian Wars French with ALL options, lots of XBows! It's a sunny day in the North East of England, so I took these pics outdoors, sorry very bright!!
(I'll crack this photography thing one day....!)

22 French, 1494-1525.
Enemies=11. Swiss, 12. Florentine Republic, 13. Milanese, 14. Venetian,
18. Spanish, 1485-1512, 19. Spanish/Imperialist 1519-1559, 26. Tudor English, 1489-1560.

1x3Kn, 2x3Kn or 4Pk or 4Cb or 1xArt + 1x2Ps, 2x2LH or 4Cb/4Sh/2Ps, 2x4Pk, 2x4Cb, 2x4Cb or 1x2Ps + 4Bd, 1xArt.

The French arrayed for War!

French Gendarmes. Picked these up at a Games show, they're a cracking paint job.
We had to add extra plumes to the helmets & paint the lances.

Big French Guns. These are Vexillia Ltds Landsknects Artillery that we bought a few months ago. I must say 'Top Marks' to Vexillia, cracking service, very quick through the post & pleasure to deal with. They have painted up really well. The French list allows the option for two pieces of Artillery, to match the French superiority in Artillery at this time.


Mercenary Light Horseman.

The massed ranks of Pike, both Landsknect & Swiss. Along with lots of firepower in the shape of Crossbows & Psiloi.

Pike & Shot combination, complete with Mercenary Landsknect Blades.
