Swiss Mercenaries

swisspikegroup-800x600.jpgThe Swiss Mercenaries performed service in the French Army during the Medieval and Renaissance periods.    They were among the finest, most proficient soldiers in the world and had a nearly two century run of battlefield successes.    Their tactics were eventually copies and mastered by imitators such as the German Landsknechts, who were bitter rivals of the Swiss Mercenaries, and in 1525 the Swiss were defeated at Pavia as part of Francis I’s army.   Our coverage of the Swiss at Pavia features 11 Different figures which can be setup in a Pike block to oppose the German Landsknechts.   With superb sculpting and painting along with a variety of pose, a realistic formation can be setup to further Battle of Pavia dioramas of First Legion figures.
