English Longbowmen Shooting

The longbow might have been falling out of favour by the Tudor period but it was still in use throughout the 16th and 17th Century on the battlefield. The trend was certainly leaning towards gunpowder by this point.

However, I really love the longbow and the use of it on the battlefield. It had been a staple point of the English army for many years and we had unparalleled archers.

What do you think of these Tudor bowmen?
