At the Battle of Pavia in 1525, Georg von Frundsberg won his most famous victory as a Landsknecht commander. This figure represents a standard bearer carrying the Frundsberg family coat of arms, part of the command group along with REN014-REN017.

The Renaissance spanned the 14th-17th Centuries, during which art, science, exploration, and literature made a great resurgence. Not all was civilized however, as the great continental powers of Europe bloodily vied for control of the continent; their militaries warred with each other. Gunpowder and cannon became more reliable, and less apt to explode unexpectedly. Heavy cavalry and foot soldiers were the most common troops, and the pike and musket were the most common armaments in Renaissance armies. It is often referred to as the "Age of Pike and Shot" for this reason.

First Legion has planned hand painted military miniatures to cover the major military engagements of this exciting period of history.
