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

Sculpted by the incomparable Erramir Orlan of Peculiar Companions, these Western European Artillery Crew are intended for armies from the 15th and 16th Centuries. There are four unique models, a commander, gunner, and two loaders. All models come as both pre-supported and unsupported STL files.

The 15th and 16th centuries were marked by significant historical events, including the rise of the Holy Roman Empire, the Age of Exploration, and conflicts that reshaped the European continent. Artillery played a pivotal role during this period of territorial disputes, religious strife, and military innovation.

Battles and Wars:

Italian Wars (1494-1559): The Italian Wars were a series of conflicts involving multiple European powers. Artillery crews were often employed as mercenaries and played a significant role in these wars, participating in battles such as the Battle of Pavia (1525).
Reformation and Religious Wars: The Reformation and the subsequent religious conflicts in Europe, such as the Schmalkaldic War (1546-1547), saw the use of artillery in both defense and offense as religious and political factions clashed.
Tactics and Strategies:  Artillery Crews were renowned for their precision and firepower on the battlefield. Their tactics involved:

Artillery Handling: They were skilled in operating various types of cannons and artillery pieces, ensuring accurate targeting and powerful ranged attacks.
Siege Warfare: Artillery crews played a crucial role in siege warfare, bombarding enemy fortifications and city walls to breach defenses.
Defensive Tactics: In addition to offense, they were adept at setting up defensive positions, using artillery to repel enemy assaults.
