Just a thought ...as far as I know there is only one slinger protrayed as a medieval ..the one in the Zvezda set, Medieval peasants, but they were a pretty common weapon,

Yea that would be a good idea for a valdemar set some slingers!
But it almost posible to use the ancient set straight out of box, cause the changes over time is not big

For example the alexanders infantry

I´ve got those Hat light inf...I looked at them today...just after I wrote the idea up...they are very small figs.
I´ve made two today, conversions from one of my favourite sets of medievals ...tomorrow I´ll post them...

Yes slingers would be nice, Alex and I did some brainstorming and I will add the slingers to the list, think that we will show the brutto list in a few days.

Brilliant news!!!!!!!! You´d be onto a winner...there are absolutely none that I can find anywhere in any scale. !! A good one, IMHO would be generic infantry, a bit of chain mail and helmet...I´ve found a picture of a re-enactor dreesed like this..if I can get my scanner to work I´ll post it.

Here´s another I´ve found

Here´s a slow video of one being used...shows that the position of mine is a bit wrong..or maybe not
