Strelets Norman Archers

Another little bit of my Norman army finished and still following the principle of no repeat bods in any armies.
I like the way the set is divided neatly (per sprue) into 4 armoured archers, 4 unarmoured firing and 4 reloading..makes for a good looking firing line. The set has a lot of potential for jumping the bods forward in time a few centuries and putting them in a 13th, 14th cent army..a head swop here and there ...:-D
The 4 armoured including a crossbowman
The 4 unarmoured firing
The 4 reloading
Hello to Springinsfeld from Mercurious Atticus  
He writes, " A True Relation of Strange Proceedings in a Somersetshire Loft"  His LotR army is amazing!!! 
Hello to Alberto. who has two blogs...A Wash of Bourbon and El Brazo de Nelson.  1/2nd and other scales on both blogs..his latest, Swashbuckling and Musketeers in 28mm is fun...the use of bottles as weapons :-D

  5. These figures would be suitable for helping those poor beleagured crusader bods on a hill a few posts ago!

  7. Great work, Paul. Are the bowstrings cut and glued, or is it more involved than that?

  9. That looks to be a very useful set of figures. Once again you shame us with the quantity and quality of your output.

  14. Just delete that post Paul! It's not worth to make you angry!
    The bases are good and the painted bods also!

  15. Yep, the bases are just as fine as they are. My advice is not to feed that troll over there - he/she/it just wants some attention (which has been already given, sadly). It's the easiest way to deal with them alikes.
