Thanks
The question is...did they have crossbowmen in great numbers at bannockburn or not? I´ve seen lists showing they had abot 450, three Groups of 150 in each section of the english army, but it seems they might not have been so common after around 1300, longbows became the favoured english Long range missle System, with the French using large numbers of (particually Genoese crossbowmen)

Yes, and I have heard that the English did use the longbows for many centuries and the last time that the longbow was used in a large battle should be at the battle at waterloo. It was first at this date that the rifle was so reliable, precise and fast to reload that it could outmatch the longbow.

On average it Looks as if the Scottish cavalry numbered around 500 so two stands of 5 a Piece should cover them.

Nice indeed and the Scots looks a lot like the ones from Braveheart, I do like them but historically I think that the Scottish noble would have been dressed quite similar to their English counterparts?

The scottish nobles would have dressed in a similar style to the english..basically all the troops looked more or less the same, but the scotts had more light cavalry (hobilars - mounted infantry) than the English and most of the scottish Lords/barons etc fought on foot at bannockburn
The english also had a large force of hobilars at bannockburn..around 600 of them

Nice painting, but I think that not even your painting skills can save these Strelets figures

Which Manual?
The shield Patterns here are randomly taken from the early blazon site and all over the web. I´m making up a contact sheet with as many as possible on it, all scaled down for 1/72nd and when it´s ready I´ll make it available as a PDF here.
I´m also making one with all the english and scottish coats-of-arms (also scaled for use in 1/72nd) but they will take a bit longer..the names etc are being added next to each coat-of-arms and it takes a lot of Research to make sure I´m getting the right ones.

PS...I reckon you were right about the scottish cavalry looking very similar to the english...and now I´ve found nearly 22 scottish Lords who were at bannockburn (and one or two who swapped sides from the english to the scottish side on the evening of day one) I´ll have to make up a few barded horses and replace some of the previous scottish cavalry. The ones without barding will just have to swop sides :-D

I don´t like to rebase but I wasn´t happy with the size of the bases anyway. I will go for two to a base, one Knight, one unbarded (maybe with a flag) on bases with a 4cm frontage so when 3 blocks are together they have a 12cm Impetus frontage.
