Two years on from the Battle of Novara (which we recreated last year), we find the Swiss once more launching a mass surprise attack on the newly arrived French forces, hoping to capture the Duchy of Milan.

A bloody and hard fought battle, the Swiss loss on the day saw the end of their dominance as the finest infantry in Europe.
This battle features the Swiss army almost completely composed of infantry, together with a few Milanese allies, against a force with large numbers of Landsknecht infantry, dressed in their usual outrageous fashions.
Together with the wonderfully attired French knights, flags galore and new camps, this is a visually rich recreation with lots of new painting for everyone to enjoy. Stephen Lindsey hosts this Renaissance battle in 15mm using modified DBR rules for 8 players.
