Medieval Crossbowmen (Strelets)

Possibly not the best set in terms of detail, the crossbows for example are pretty crude but for the range of poses, a good set. 14 poses which gives a lot of variety for the battlefield.
As noted on PSR "It would have been both appropriate and appreciated if the set had include some pavise shields which were commonly used by those armed with the crossbow". 
Well, I´ve sorted that out :-D
All the bods together in a firing line...one fires while the other loads. I haven´t based them yet....I´m still deciding wether to keep them in one block or base individually or pairs.
Some of my favourite poses. The wide range of clothing styles means that at least one or two can be used for certain periods...for example, the one kneeling..a Norman or a crusader
One big mistake...medievals with trousers!!!! They will get re-done, I´ll add a bit of green stuff to create boots.
A slight upgrade to the scratch made Pavisen  With a pin I made a hole up behind the paper and inserted a straightened out Staple, bending it slightly to give the stand the correct angle.
