Thirty Years War, 1618-1648


Imperialist Curiassiers painted by Artmaster Studio.


This line represents the Imperial armies of the Thirty Years War, with a special emphasis on roughly the first half of the war, from the first battles until the climactic battle of Nordlingen, in which the Swedish Phase of the war ended and the French intervened. Most of the classic battles of the war occurred during this first half and the German and other imperial troops had a distinctive dress which is not really adequately represented by models which are sculpted based on sources from the English Civil War.

Every effort has been made to assure that the men are dressed and equipped as would be in the armies of Tilly and Wallenstein. The first set available, the cuirassier, were the foundation of the heavy Horse of Imperial armies and far and away the most popular helmet these wore was the zischagge helmet. In their sinister black armour and aggressive-looking helmets, these formidable heavy horse were one of the reasons that Gustavus brigaded detached shot with his Horse.

The models are made in a large 15mm style so that they may mix with many of the popular ECW and TYW lines currently available. The models have been made to fit on the base/element sizes required by most rules sets, that is, a width of 40mm, with a depth depending on the troop type. The models will be available in handy unit sets and will come complete with command figures.

Sculpted by Mike Broadbent. The models were painted by Artmaster Studio.
