Bloody Bill and Meg Phillips, two pirate characters from our upcoming Napoleonic pirate range.
We’re very pleased to release Scottish spearmen for our late 14th Century range, contemporaneous with the famous victory at Otterburn. Although in our “late 14th Century” range they’d be accurate for Scots from the late 13th century into the early 15th. Available now:
Early Vasa Swedish are coming — this was the Swedes after the breakup of the Dane-dominated Scandinavian Union, but before that soul-patched hipster Gustavus Adolphus.
Despite being a poor country the kingdom was quite scrappy and fought not only the Danes but Ivan the Terrible’s Muscovy as well—and often won! The infantrymen were largely calivermen with a handful of halberdiers mixed in, and a few blocks of pikes, although the Swedes seem not to have liked that queen of weapons very much. The crossbow remained part of the array on paper but in practice was invariably relegated to fortress garrisons. The infantry basically never wore armour except for the odd regiment of foreigners raised on occasion.
The horse were trotters by Eric XIV’s reign similar to German reiters but lacking shoulder protection and sometimes wearing infantry style helmets instead.
These determined warriors from the North make a very unusual pike and shot army indeed — the infantry are ready to go and I may release them first, followed shortly by the horse (pistoliers, skirmishers with calivers, and command). Here are the infantry command. They’re the best dressed of the Swedish foot, the more typical Swedish soldier of the period being in very simple clothing reminiscent of peasant or yeoman dress.
