Many thanks for the kind comments one and all.
I think the baggy trousered pikemen are Old Glory

Yes, I think these are definitely the Old Glory range of landsknechts in pluderhosen, some of their best sculpts IMHO. I think I also spotted Redoubt reiters, Warlord lancers and The Assault Group gens d'armes.
What rules were you using for the refight?

Another great looking game Ian. I'm guessing home grown rules?  How long did this affair take to game out? I agree with an earlier comment that it was good to hear the historical narrative along side what happened in your game.

The rules were a set I wrote a lot of years back, 'For King or Faith?'

A great looking game! Who makes the lovely pikemen with the baggy striped trousers, please?
I think you are referring to the Old Glory landsknechts in pluderhosen from their late 16th century range.  They are very big figures, and I foolishly avoided them for years for this reason.  However, I saw them again at the recent Vapnartak show and succumbed.  I am currently working my way though a 48 figure unit of these gloriously indulgent chaps.
