I've took a few more pics of some Perry crossbowmen with metal heads and a few games workshop crossbow arms and added them to my blog, prior to selling them.

Here's the link if anyone would like to take a look: link

Tempting, though I do have too many of these of my own (though not yet painted, and probably never up to your standard) :-)

Just out of curiosity: do you plan to scrap the army (sad, if so), or are you just dropping the crossbowmen from it?

I have "converted" (read: build) most of my TAG Italian and Spanish crossbowmen with arquebus to start with, and never build any "Italian" crossbowmen from the Perry sets (though some French/Burgundian for the late 15th century).

Hi Puster, I've decided to use Perry for the earlier period and use TAG for post 1500. I couldn't bring mesell to snap a few heads off to replace them and paint over the blue.

cheers Pete

Thanks for the answer!
Makes sense. I have a unit of (almost) painted Spanish pikes that I have to rebase (from individual to groups), and am yet undecided wether to actually do it… I hate to destroy finished work. On the other hand, individually they do not look like a pikeblock… grrrr.
Sadly for me, mine are not good enough to be sold :-(
