The term, Landsknecht, literally means ‘Land Servant’ or ‘Servant of the Country’ and seems to have been coined sometime around 1470. As a result, it takes a real soldier to lead the Landsknecht into battle, fighting for the simple notion of money.
This blister pack contains 4 Landsknecht Officers.
The brutality of these mercenary forces and especially the carnage of close combat against Swiss forces or opposing Landsknechts was a shock to most who hired them.
