Here's something I put together a little while ago but never got around to posting. A few photos and comments here.

Nice painting. What company's figures?

I've played against this wonderfully well painted army, and let me say they fight as well as they are painted! However, if memory serves, I think Anthropicus failed to mention that he actually added thread for the bowstrings. In 15mm no less.

(Corvus Belli figures, if I may jump in).

Very nice. The Black Prince's army is the cornerstone of my HYW DBA collection too.

Thanks for the kind words all!

It's actually the arrows that I added. I thought about string, but it's really hard to make it look properly taut and more like a bowstring than a hauling line. Stabbed my fingers more times than I'd like to admit in the process.

I used to string 15mm bows with 5-amp fuse wire – reasonably easy to pull taut. But I no longer think it's worth the fuss.

Ooh, good idea to use fuse wire. I might try that for larger scale figures.
