The late 15th and early 16th centuries in Europe were defined by
near-constant warfare. National ‘standing armies’ were unheard of and the
ambitions of empires were reliant on the mercenaries they could afford
This box contains:
- Plastic components to make either 30 Pikemen or 24 Pikemen and
- Command sprue with options for officers, standard bearers,
- Plastic bases.
- Background guide with 5 full-colour flags.
Landsknechts were instigated by the Holy Roman Emperor, Maximillian I, as a
reaction to the Swiss Mercenary Pikemen that had dominated battlefields for
decades before the Italian Wars (1494–1559).
Over the course of the Italian Wars, however, the Landsknecht tactics adapted
far more than the Swiss and the use of firearms in conjunction with the pike
would give them the edge, at least tactically.
Maximillian was keen to give the men freedom to wear what they wanted, and
this resulted in plumes, slashed sleeves and bright colours. The figures in this
boxed set can be used to represent the Landsknechts raised in Germany or the
Tyrol as well as early Swiss pike regiments.

Standard Delivery Fees
Delivery – From just $4.50 per shipment
Delivery starts out at just $4.50 per shipment. As the size and weight of shipments increase, so does the freight price. To ensure every customer pays a fair price for delivery, an exact shipping price will be displayed to you in the checkout based on the size and weight of the products in your order and your delivery address.
If your order contains a mix of in stock and out of stock products, you will be presented with a choice in the Checkout to have your order sent in multiple shipments (so in stock items ship as soon as they're ready), or all items together in a single shipment (to save money). Using a single shipment will mean in stock items are held back until out of stock items are ready. e.g.
The following delivery options are presented in the Checkout as optional upgrades for your order.
NZ Post Courier / Express Tonight Delivery – $5.60-$19.50 per shipment
If you live in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington or Christchurch and in a qualifying inner-city suburb, Mighty Ape can deliver in-stock products between 6pm – 9pm on the same day your order is dispatched.
Signature Required – $2.50 per shipment
If you don’t want NZ Post Courier to leave your parcel unattended please select the signature required option. This is especially recommended for high-value items. Neither Courier Post nor Mighty Ape are liable for parcels that are stolen, damaged or lost after an item has been delivered.
Rural Delivery – $3.50 per shipment
If you live at a rural address you must select the Rural Delivery option in the Checkout for your item to be delivered.
