Wellinton archers

After reading a Wiki page on English Longbow I decided to sculpt a couple of What-ifs Napoleonic archers.
From Wiki:  By the 19th Century skilled longbow men had all but vanished. The Duke of Wellington even asked for a corps of longbows to provide a force producing more rapid fire than guns could. It would have been particularly devastating against the then unarmoured targets in his Napoleonic campaigns, but he was told that no such skilled men existed in England any more
The uniform was based on light infantry uniforms, adding a small sword for self defense.

Started with these some time ago now only made the last touches.

  1. Good lord these are rediculously good. Really splendid sculpts. Can you get closer photos of your work?

    1. Wow thanks, what part would you like to see, I can try making close ups but most likely it would not work as I only have a camera on my mobile not really suited for close ups

  2. Now that would be something to see, a couple of units of archers at Waterloo!!
