One thing about Historical games is that you often get to play characters that were actual people and had actual lives. … I guess it’s a bit different if you play a young version of them and they get killed off in a fight… Ah well, that’s half the fun. Anyway, Warlord Games is expanding their Pike & Shotte line with some new Landsknecht units and a couple characters to lead them into battle.
From the release:
Available to the highest bidder, the Landsknechts stand tall and proud and ready to make full use of their pikes.
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.
Kaiser Maximillian I, also known as Maximilian I, Holy Roman Emperor, is ready to lead his armies across Europe with Götz von Berlichingen and Georg von Frundsberg by his side.
