The Descent of the Teutonic Order

I want to introduce my second Project for 2016:

I am building up a 1410 Teutonic Order force for Lion Rampant. I always wanted to paint up some high or late medieval stuff, but could not decide which period exactly to do. I thought about HYW and WotR, discarded those ideas in favour for a "german" theme. And then it struck me: Why not the Teutonic Order? The iconic heraldry, the allied german Knights, all the City militias and also the polish heraldry are so cool. When I shared my thoughts with my mates Westfalia Chris promptly joined me, going for the polish-lithunian Commonwealth.
Here are the first miniatures for my army:

 First some civilians. I like Story driven games, and NPCs always add more flavour, apart from looking good on the table. Miniatures are a mix of Perry´s HYW range civilians and 1 Corps medieval camp followers.
 City militia from the City of Elbing. Perry HYW and Claymore Castings HYW (highly recommended!!)
 Knights on foot, Prussian Nobility and wealthy citizens from Brunszberg. Perry HYW Metall and Plastics with 1Corps shields.


Mounted and Dismounted Crossbowman from Slochow, a mix of Perry HYW and 1Corps.

Hope you like it!
Cheers
