Description

These are 2 rubber moulds used to cast an French Crossbowman. Assembly is required. You can use solder or glue. No glue is included.

Crossbowmen played an important role in the late Medieval period. The crossbow was really the first hand-held weapon that could be used by an untrained soldier to injure or kill a knight in plate armour. The most powerful crossbows could penetrate armour and kill at 200 yards. Crossbows are easier to aim than longbows because the crossbowman doesn't have to use a hand to hold the string back while aiming. On a similar note, a crossbow can be loaded long before the bowman might need to shoot. In this way, the bowman would be able to shoot immediately if surprised. Crossbows require less upper body strength to operate as well. One can use both arms to span (draw back) a crossbow.

    As per the previous review; a delightfully 3D figure, and also the somewhat unconventional cocking-foot pose. Thought it would be a make-weight figure... but no, is one of the best in the series.

    realism and awesome pose

    what an excellent figure prince august has produced with this crossbowman! ofcourse, thanks to the multipart-system the figure has real 3D and has a very realistic appearence. it's easy to add a small stealstring on the crossbow (just make a little whole where the mechanism is)to have even more realism. a delight to paint and a joy to watch.
