What did you use for bowstrings?

And are the arrows in the ground scratchbuilt?

Very nice indeed Ray. The painting and shading are terrific and I think the mud sticking to the clothing is very effective.

The groundwork is great, it's good to see the wet mud because it did play a significant role on that battlefield.

Fantastic work with a real ‘ feel’ of the time. The strings are brilliant.

Best wishes,

Thank you all!
Bluefalchion, the strings were made from stretched sprue and the arrows made from acupuncture needles 0.2mm gauge and Green stuff.

Are you sure that this is in 1/72 scale? This vignette is really astonishing!

That certainly is a very fine wire, and plastic sprue stretching achievement. :thumbup: BB

Fantastic painted figures Ray! :thumbup:

Yep, we all like the strings - and the figures! That acupuncture bow strings show a real dedication to your art and work very nicely too.

Once again thank you all for your kind comments.
Peter, my next project is planned to consist of about 13 to 15 figures and horses, so you do the math ;-) :-)

Great figures! Bows are especially realistic!
If you quickly view the photo, it may seem that this is a scale of 54 mm, and the figures and the color are so high-quality!

Well, I stared at Ray's vignette for about 30 minutes and thought they were 54 mm all the way through...

Ray, It's clear that it has been worth waiting all this time to enjoy your master piece. I agree they seem 54mm figures. :thumbup:

My very best congratulations. ;-)
