THE FOUNDRY ROUGH GUIDE TO PAINTING

EARLY 16TH CENTURY LANDSKNECHTS

By Michael and Alan Perry

Armour: White (polished), blackened from the forge (low quality), or occasionally sanguined (controlled rusting and oiling producing rust coloured armour).

Hats: Black (most common), muted browns and greys (lesser extent), reds and russets and (very occasionally) muted greens, dull yellows and blues.

Feathers: Nearly always White. Worn usually for parade.

Shirts: White.

Doublet and Hose:  Usually in one colour (generally to the feet) with sometimes one sleeve or leg of a different colour. Occasionally one half of the body clothing was in a contrasting colour. Striped clothing was not uncommon. Slashes in clothing showed through contrasting colours. Most colour combinations were used.

Buff Leather Jacquettes (jerkins): Buff in colour (surprisingly!).

Nether Stocks: Could be seperate from the hose and therefore a different colour, but most colour pictures of Landsknechts show them in the same colour as the doublet and hose. There is debate about when they became seperate items of dress.
