Conquistadors 1519

Here we have a company of Spanish Conquistador pikeman with crossbow and mounted pistoleer support. A combined arms syle of force that the Aztec Army was ill prepaired to fight. Their tactics and weapons were no match for the professional soldiers of Spain armed with the latest weapons and armor of the day.

  1. Nice painting and nice figures, even if it shows a problem using GW figures as historically accurate ones. Hate to mention this but the Conquistadors didn't use pikes much, certainly not against the Aztecs. Also in 1521 the Conquistador cavalry used lances and swords. They did not have pistoliers. The Conquistadors did carry a few arquebuses, but they were dedicated foot troops. Sorry about that.
