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

Sculpted by the incomparable Erramir Orlan of Peculiar Companions, these Spanish Arquebusiers are intended for armies from the 15th and 16th Centuries. This set of 3D models comes in six variations of three poses. All models come as both pre-supported and unsupported STL files.

The 15th and 16th centuries witnessed significant historical events, including the Age of Exploration, colonial expansion, and the emergence of early firearms. The Spanish Arquebusiers played a pioneering role during this period of exploration, conquest, and military innovation.

Battles and Wars:

Italian Wars (1494-1559): Spanish Arquebusiers were actively involved in the Italian Wars, a series of conflicts that spanned several decades. They played a pivotal role in battles like the Battle of Ravenna (1512), where their firearm capabilities and precision were essential.

Conquest of the Americas: Spanish Arquebusiers were part of the conquistador expeditions that led to the conquest and colonization of the Americas. Their arquebuses provided both long-range support and close-quarters firepower during campaigns such as Hernán Cortés' conquest of the Aztec Empire (1519-1521).

Tactics and Strategies: Spanish Arquebusiers were renowned for their accuracy and the firepower of their arquebuses, early matchlock firearms. 

Ranged Firepower: Arquebusiers provided critical long-range firepower, targeting enemy soldiers and commanders. The arquebus was a game-changer, capable of piercing armor and delivering lethal blows.

Combined Arms: They often worked in conjunction with pike formations to create a balanced infantry force. Pikemen would provide protection against cavalry charges, while arquebusiers delivered deadly volleys of gunfire.

Siege Warfare: Arquebusiers were invaluable during sieges, using their firearms to target defenders on castle walls or within fortifications, weakening the enemy's ability to resist.

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.
