Swiss mercenary by GordonFreeguy Swiss mercenary by GordonFreeguy
"Swiss mercenaries were soldiers notable for their service in foreign armies, especially the armies of the Kings of France, throughout the Early Modern period of European history, from the Later Middle Ages into the Age of the European Enlightenment. Their service as mercenaries was at its apogee during the Renaissance, when their proven battlefield capabilities made them sought-after mercenary troops." -Wiki

just a little something I drew yesterday...

I heard that Switzerland fired at both sides in World War II to maintain their neutrality. That's bad-ass by itself. Like Finland, you don't FUCK with the Swiss.

Actually an interesting fact, Infantry in the Medieval Era would more commonly use a Pole-arm, such as a Bill or a Pike. Easier to fight mounted soldiers,

well they have to. Since they theoretically could get raped from all sides without anyone coming to their aid.
