For this update I finished my fourth heavy infantry stand:
I stole some bows and quivers from a Viking plastic set to cobble together some archers from the same Conquest Games infantry set:
Finally, I used the wood-plank shields to create some Javelin skirmishers
I've really enjoyed working with these new plastics, and the larger scale allowed me to try some stuff I haven't done in awhile. The other advantage to the plastics is that they lighten the bases significantly. Metal figs on 1/4:" plywood makes for some heavy units.
I like the overall look of my cavalry units, but I can definitely see the advantage of mounting only 5 knights for the heavy units. I have been tempted, however to do 12cm square bases just so I can mount them in cavalry wedges. Perhaps with the next set.....
