English Longbowmen

Here is a battle group of English Longbows from my in-progress Hundred Years War English army for Field of Glory. I based the army on the one present at Crecy in 1346. Only 18 more stands of Longbows to go…

The central stand represents the lower-rank commanders, such as sergeant, esquires, or other men-at-arms. I painted the archers in a variety of colors, tending toward peasant clothes. This was an army without a uniform, other than the St. George’s Cross scattered around.

The last pic features some of the field fortifications the English used during the war. Stakes, mounds, and hidden pits really messed with the enemy knights, slowing them up for more longbow fire.
