So here is another short post on one of my budding project, one that in a months time should be a very large project indeed. But for now I am just playing around with ideas. The project is set in a fantastical 16th century alternate Europe sort of thing.
So, these here chaps are going to be part of a human army/warband -- them being conscripts and/or militia. So almänne broken up means "weapon" "commoner" inspired by the Swedish word "allmoge" meaning "folk" or "peasant".
So first up we have their commander, an officer (retired knight) of the name of (undecided).
It is he that has armed these chaps who are either members of the local militia, press ganged into joining the army reserves, or just normal peasants armed and given basic training.
Their formation is relatively well armoured and has a 1/1 mix of archers to close combat.
Including yesterdays two, this makes up one full unit of eight almänne and their officer -- ready to go raid for cows over the border.
