There are a couple of Imperialist field signs in the unit, such as simple crosses and the peacock feathers on the officer's cap, but after some thought I decided not to add a standard bearer so that effectively they're a free company which can act individually or in support of the pike block along with being useful as mercenary arquebusiers for my Tudor Army.
- the handles on the katzbalger's painted as wood
- the lining of the officer's waffenlock and drummer & halberdier's doublets as canvas - (something I have noticed in a few contemporary paintings and in re-enactor's garb),and
- painting the lace fastenings on the doublet as canvas or red
If this has been useful to you and you'd like me to photograph the next Landskechts I paint individually along with as a unit please say and I'll try and remember.
Coming up in part two will be these figures as a unit and no doubt a hint at the next item on the workbench.
