New Troops in Potzau!
« on: April 25, 2008, 01:33:16 pm »
As you might know, I am working on a new epic photostory, which is placed in a fictional little country named Potzau. Timeline is between 1560 - 1680, so there´s plenty of space for Landsknechts, Curassiers, Condottieres and musketeers.....
So here are the first, swedish inspired (Gustav Adolphus II. army), hope you enjoy...


These are the heavy cavalry, curassiers or Potzau´s Ironsides.....

very nice troops olki! i am curious how this theme will continue!  ;)
I left my love a letter in the hollar of a tree.
I told her she would find me in the U.S. Cavalry.
High, yo, down they go, there's no such word as can't.
We'll ride clean down to hell and back for Ulysses Simpson Grant.

That's a really great army, Olki ...

I love "The Duke of Potzau´s Own Guard" ... ... ... ...

And, your Landsknecht mercenaries are really piling up the "dead" Klickys behind them  ...

Thanks for sharing and all the best,
Richard
