These are DIGITAL files meant for 3D printing. They ARE NOT physical miniatures!

Sculpted by the incomparable Erramir Orlan of Peculiar Companions, this set of German Arquebusiers is intended for armies from the 15th and 16th Centuries. This set of 3D models includes two poses in six variants. All models come as both pre-supported and unsupported STL files.

The 15th and 16th centuries were marked by significant historical events, including the evolution of firearms and the transition from traditional warfare to early modern warfare. The German Arquebusier played a pivotal role during this period of military innovation, territorial disputes, and shifting tactics.

Battles and Wars:

Italian Wars (1494-1559): The German Landsknechts, including Arquebusiers, were frequently employed as mercenaries during the Italian Wars. They participated in battles such as the Battle of Pavia (1525), where firearms played a crucial role in the outcome.
Reformation and Religious Wars: The Reformation and subsequent religious conflicts in Europe, such as the Schmalkaldic War (1546-1547), saw the use of firearms and Arquebusiers as religious and political factions clashed.
Tactics and Strategies: The German Arquebusiers were renowned for their precision and firepower on the battlefield. Their tactics involved:

Firearms Proficiency: Arquebusiers were skilled in operating early firearms like the arquebus. They provided long-range fire support, disrupting enemy formations and causing casualties.
Combined Arms: These marksmen often worked in conjunction with traditional infantry, cavalry, and artillery units, forming a balanced and effective fighting force.
Siege Warfare: While primarily marksmen, Arquebusiers also participated in siege warfare, assisting in the capture of enemy fortifications and city walls.

Printing at 100% resolution will yield a true 28mm miniature. Prints at 105% are slightly more in scale with Perry Miniatures and 110% prints will be in a compatible scale with Warhammer Fantasy miniatures.
