But I'm sorry but its my army, and I need some sort of opponent.
Anyway, there is a lot of argument [ well in the renaissance history world there is] about the make up of this unit.
I know the consensus is that they were a unit of arquebusiers. But I also have seen that they could have been pike or even mounted arquebusiers.
Well never being one to duck the accuracy of history, I am opting for a mixed legion!
That is pike, arquebus, sword and buckler, some mounted light troops and a small artillery piece!
That should cover every option I think.
I purchased the lovely Pro Gloria pike when they first came out and I have used them as the pikemen of the unit, with a mounted Foundry officer.
The arqubus are a mix of Foundry landsnect and Foundry conquistadors. Of course Pro Gloria are gearing up to produce some arqubusiers later this month so I will probably replace these.
The combined legion partly completed.
