The Holy Roman Empire was a very diverse and complex construct in medieval times. There was not “the one army look or structure” and to achieve at least some historical plausability, I decided to build the core of my Imperial army with troops from the region I live: e.g. Kurpfalz (Electoral Palatinate), Kraichgau, Mainz etc. While doing the research for that topic, I learned that most of the the guys in my army at least knew each other or fought together somewhere in the 1420s.
