Another slight diversion from the medieval Spanish army, English longbows nevertheless are a welcome addition to the Portuguese option in the DBMM Spanish list. They are rated superior which means they are very useful at eliminating, or at least pushing back, most troop types that cross their path:
The DBMM list allows for up to twelve allied elements which is fortuitously what I had in the English medieval pile. Rather annoyingly however the 100 Years War English list allows for potentially a lot more than that, which is something I did not fully comprehend when placing my initial order. I have since ordered another dozen elements' worth which I'm hoping I'll be able to complete soon after the rest of the Spanish, and while I still remember how I tackled this lot:
As with the bulk of my medieval figures, the figures are from Khurusan and are available in two packs of six poses each, so twelve poses in total, and each figure is supplied with a separate stand of arrows:
After the French crossbowmen, I have again thoroughly enjoyed painting these figures:
That's the main part of the potential English allied contingent completed:
Next up, some Spanish peasants (and a few extra handgunners I rather annoyingly found after having completed the initial batch a few weeks ago). I'm saving the Spanish knights, who I hope will turn out to be the star of the show, until the end of the project.
