The "soldaten" (soldiers) of Todeskorps are fighters of French, German, Swiss, Scottish, Greek and English backgrounds, but we welcome warriors from all lands to this "Free Company". Todeskorps is loosely based on the 15th century mercenary bands of Swiss and German origin, in the tradition of the Swiss armoured pikemen and the later "Landsknechts" of similar fame. We Share a common love of combat, and the desire to look flashy upon the field. We encourage the use of Sallets and Bascinets, and fight primarily as a skirmish unit with Pikes, Glaives, Greatswords and Crossbows. Members wear their own colors in the 15th century style, but wear an armband with the Company's badge, and one pikeman has a banner for the unit's standard. We camp together. We fight and die together. The leader of the warband is Sir Philippe, but there is no permanent field Captain; each member (once proven) gets a chance to command the unit in the field. In this way we hope to improve battlefield command experience. We are a mercenary company, hiring out to the highest bidder.
