I have now purchased a 6mm Landshnect Army, about 22 bases in all.
I need some army lists for them and enemies.
Am I correct to think this era would be covered by DBR?
The Later German list (IV/13d) serves as Maximillian’s army for his continental wars; Lowlands, Denmark, and of course Italy.
I have modified this list for my own campaign so armies can be raised from diverse entities, such as the bishoprics, city states feudal and mercenary bands. The Black Band (landsknects) was one such mercenary army that found employment with Christian of Denmark.
Mostly pike, but one-quarter were handgunners with a number of artillery pieces. The percentage of cavalry to infantry was slowly decreasing by this time, but cavalry (Cv) and knights (3Kn) would be about even.

So you to have taken the first step down the slippery slope! At least you did it in 6mm... Not 28 like me.
DBR works well for this period. The transition from DBA is easy as DBA 3 gets much of its "DNA" from DBR...not DBMM...as was touted by some.
DBA also works well for the early period, though you will need to make allowances for the Swiss being Superior and for artillery range to drastically increase. After 1515ish you have issues with handgunners...best to use DBR or one of the DBA extensions.
