Made up some of the plastics and painted them as levies. It would be really great if they would release some proper levy longbow types, but they seem to have moved on from this period.

Nice figures. More on the blog as usual.

Levy archers could even wear livery coats, so long as they were for a town, rather than a nobleman!
They look very good as you have done them!

For Levy longbow in the Wars of the Roses look at the Perry 'Agincourt' range of longbowmen. Their equipment is less fashionable and more antiquated than the Perry retinue troops.

I work in 15mm and I have recently bought Donnington New Era Agincourt bowmen and Welsh, etc, precisely to make my Levy foot look more down-at-heel. Remember… a lot of troops probably turned out in dad's or granddad's armour in 1455. A mix of say 50% Agincourt archers with 50% WOTR would give a good Levy 'look'.

The same argument can also be made for a few of the older style knights in the same box.

And if you want to experiment first, I believe the Perrys sell loose sprues of certain troop types including the longbowmen.
