The crossbow was a deadly weapon that was able to punch through armour and give the shooter plenty of range and power. This was offset with it taking longer to reload but if used in conjunction with an advancing infantry of cavalry force your archers had little to worry about.
The power of the crossbow was able to punch its way through shields as well as armour and flesh so all those Anglo-Saxons crouching behind that bristling thicket of spears and shields should beware.
Miniature wise these are really nicely detailed and I love that each of them is entirely different in look. Mix these in with some other metal and plastic Normans and you’ll have quite the force.
What do you think?
