The Swissmakers*

On special request may I introduce you to: the Swiss!

1st the foundry ones, but they look to me a bit too "Burgundian"so I will keep them as Reissläufer, sort of (with the armour inherited or found or worse etc.)

The last ones are a mix of Perry‘s, plastic and Foundry Landsknecht. As the late Swiss (which I do intend to field) are more lenient (fashion-wise) towards the now (It-model of the days) Landsknechte.

P.S. the flags are http://www.flagsofwar.com

*Movie Swiss- German (1978) synopsis: Foreigners who apply to become Swiss citizens have no easy task - especially when the police lets Bodmer loose to check upon their background, their integration in the society, and the possible danger they represent to the orderliness and cleanliness of the country. Bodmer gets a new assistant to help him corner unsuitable applicants. Very soon, a couple of conformist German physicians, a pretty Eastern European dancer, and the inevitable (and politically troublesome) Italian immigrant and his family start shooting themselves in the foot in their attempts to get the red passport with a white cross.


  1. Excellent work, once again...The first two pictures are really impressive, Master of the Pikes!
