The archers (on the english side) had a pretty bad time of it at the battle...but at least most of them managed to finally escape and get back home

As always very nice work. really do like the strings you did on the bows. In my opinion I think that the archers should be standing a bit closer together... but know hard evidence

Great work! Again your shields looks very realistic and the banners as well. What does the difference is the fact that you do paint the edges and also part of the surfaces.

Thanks Jens
The White on the printed flags Looks just too White and clean so I painted them with a tiny bit of Brown added to the White, then I thought it looked better to add some paint to all the large Areas of the flags..Looks a bit more like matrial.

Well the cavalry looks good, great painting and good realistic choice of colors, and the braun on the horses looks really great. My only negative is the bulky sculting style of STRELETS-R.

Btw Just imagine a company making all the cool sets STRELETS does, but in high quality... that would be great (bad for ValdemarMiniatures I know... but great anyways).

I was originally going to make up the armies using any figs from the medieval period..but that would have been too easy This way, using only Strelets makes me be more creative and find new uses for old figs like this one from the crossbowmen set

It would be quite something but The sets would be way too expensive I think. The normal 12 figs x 4 sprues maybe not but sets like Scottish Army of Robert Bruce."4 figs and 6 horses! I can´t think how much this would cost if it was produced at your Level of sculpting..100euros?

Thanks .
The cavalry will be a big Problem..not only finding enough figs to make up the numbers but finding the correct coats of arms is very difficult
