Plastic Norman Crossbowmen

Hi all! When I bought my first plastic box of norman for a Saga army I wanted to use it as much as I could. Time ago, after having used all the infantry that I needed it came to me the idea to do my own crossbowmen using them (I don't have any problem with metal ones :? but I'm used to go short of money so..). I tried a lot of different compositions from other manufacturers, no ones fit well maybe for the size, the cuts or just because they weren't from the norman age.

Finally, as I promised, I have the pleasure to show you my first 4 crossbowmen for my army. I wanted to do 3 or 4 firing and the other ones charging or in other position that fits fine. I'm not good with conversions or with painting (I will update when I have time to paint them) but there are they:

For these ones I have used: Sprues of norman infantry, sprues of medieval archers and crossbows from Foot Seargents from Firegorge. I know they are from Crusaders but if you cut the metal part I think they fit quite well. Actually I cut them for the hands because if not they are so short. Just use a arm from conquest games plastics and attach the hand with the crossbow. For the firing one I used the archers body so I will order one sprue more to do the rest.

As you can see one of them is incomplete, I was just finding out which arm I should use... a corn? a sword? or just an arm pointing out? I'm not sure yet, we'll see.

I hope you like it, thank you so much for seeing it and sorry for my english (it's my third language so i'm still improving it)

Hi Baker,

Those are great conversions. I really like what you have done with our minis. I would love to see them painted now.

Your English is great considering it is your 3rd language! Wow! I wish I could speak a second language.
