Overview of the Imperialist forces, as seen from their left. The Mirabello hunting lodge is in the midground, along with the Vernavola stream. This and nd a number of additional photos courtesy of Milton Soong.
On the Imperialist far left were Italian pikemen and arquebusiers, supported by some Genitors/Jinetes (Javelin armed Spanish light cavalry)...
and a unit of Landsknechts.
The Imperialist right: Spanish Knights, Imperial Gendarmes, Italian Elmeti, two Spanish Colunellas, supported by a battery and Spanish Arquebusiers (arguably the best in the world at the time).
Some (!) of the French Gendarmes and supporting cavalry prepare to advance. They have a big advantage in Cavalry on this side of the battlefield, but putting it to good advantage may be challenging.
Charge and Countercharge!
Spanish Genitors attempt to clear the woods of pesky Swiss skirmishers.
Push of Pike!
Jeff Wasileski had the fearsome Swiss Pikes. Well, they were fearsome on paper, but underperformed here, much as they did in history. Of course, being outnumbered didn't help much!
Gotta love the Great Italian Wars for color!
