15mm Late 17th Century Europe


This range covers the various armies of the late 17th century from the adoption of the classic soldier's coat until "apostles" fell out of favour, around the middle of the War of the League of Augsburg. It will include such famous wars and campaigns as the Franco-Dutch and Scanian Wars, the Siege of Vienna, the Battle of Sedgemoor, and some early LoA battles such as Fleurus, Steenkerque and Landen.

The listings begin with generic troops -- troops that are more distinctive in appearance will be listed separately (for which scroll down). Note that the commanders are listed under the separate nations, but most of them could easily be used as general officers in other nations as well.

THIS RANGE HAS BEEN REDESIGNED. The old models have been replaced, or will be, and are no longer available. Some of the images of standing pikemen show them with their pikes angled in different directions, but that's due to the way the painter mounted the pikes -- the standing pikemen were all sculpted and cast to hold their pikes straight up.

The French Army (all arms)

The mighty French Army has been called "The Giant of the Grand Siecle," and all arms had distinctive appearance in this period. The Infantry wore ribbons and had their cuffs high up their arms, their armoured pikemen often wore a handsome neo-classical helmet, and the cavalry, the fiercest chargers of the age, also had ribbons and some wore a sleeveless buff coat over their cloth coat. A few other armies also wore similar outfits and so these models may be used for them as well.
