    What OOB should I use for the two sieges for The Pikemans Lament? Yes, I know but I already have Ottomans painted up!

    These are two very different times and both armies would be different in each period.

    I don’t have info for 1529 but this is a rough guide to what was at 1683, not including the garrison inside.

    Poles: 14000 cavalry, 10000 infantry

    Austrians: 13000 cavalry, 8000 infantry

    German allies (Bavarians, Saxons and minor German states): 75oo cavalry, 21500 infantry

    The Polish cavalry were roughly 1 Winged Hussar, 3 Pancerni, 1- Light Horse, 1+ Dragoons

    The Austrian cavalry was 14 Cuirass, 4 Dragoons, 2 (probably small) light cavalry.

    The German allies were 11 Cuirass, 4 Dragoons and a small guard unit.


    I hope that helps but I would say, as others have, Pikemans lament is not the set of rules to do these battles. But of course that is up to you.
