Landsknecht

OK, so after two years I've finally given in to having a section of the FORUM specifically set up to discuss painting techniques, display examples, show your latest projects and chat about this vital part of the hobby. Manufacturers please feel free to post up your sculpts, ask questions about what the gamers are after and generally promote your work.. no charge! Painters, please also feel free to post up your work for comment and critique. I can't promise the unreserved adulation characteristic of some other fora but I would hope you'd get constructive and measured comment!

Hey, Friedrich!
Long time no see.

What exactly is Gewalthaufen?
The wikipedia article is only in german and Finnish.
Neither is of much use to me.

Yeah, it was far too long for my liking.

The term Gewalthaufen or Gevierthaufen runs together with formations that the Swiss used.

from a Russian :shock: source within the Wikipedia Article about the

As far as I see it the Term Gewalthaufen or Gevierthaufen states the formation of a Square of Pikes with the weaker parts inside.
