Culvineers and Crossbows

A final contingent of shot - mixed crossbows and handguns - for the Burgundian army.


I got these assembled and painted relatively swiftly in the last week. Consequently there are just a few assembly combinations which are different from those previously completed - I've used crossbow arms from the Perrys Light Cavalry box and some plastic open hands with handguns added - and just a smidgen of Green Stuff in evidence. All are plastic figures, apart from one metal (which was painted by Chris Thompson).






Now that I'm close the planning 'finish line', I'll try and take some pics of the army over the Christmas break.

    1. Stuart,
      The body is on the command sprue for the Perry Foot Knights - really useful one to have plenty of - arms from Mercs box I think.
      Simon.

  4. Terrific work work Simon. I like the mix of crossbows and firearms in the unit. We often slavishly stick to one or the other whereas you know there would be a mix of technologies.

  5. Great ideas in mixing the parts from other kits. Mixing guns and crossbows makes sense and looks great here. Excellent painting and basing as usual. cheers

  7. Great looking unit, I think I still have some crossbow units to finish up, I'll pinch the idea of using the mounted crossbow mens arms to ring the changes.
