Eat Hot Lead Sir Knight
Death to the knight in armor-the musket men of the Renaissance.
Armed with a primitive, but deadly, smooth bore musket, these men could send a wall of lead shot that could penetrate any armor at close range. The heavy armored cavalry would remain a staple on the battlefield for two more centuries but the day of the once all powerful elite knights was over.
These 25mm metal pieces are from Hinchcliffe, I painted them in the early 1980's.
