Crusades Sets:Crossbows

I said it before and I'll say it again- How on earth can we possibly have a crusading army without crossbows???? Please don't tell me to convert, I happily do it all the time but I don't want to spend a ridiculous amount of time and money to try and scratch together some half-a** crossbowmen when there should be a set of them produced by Strelets. The crossbow was THE key weapon that kept the numerous Saracen archers at bay and along with the infantry spear/shield wall provided a firm base for the famous and unstoppable Frankish cavalry charge. Please Strelets address this glaring hole in an otherwise awesome set of figures. Thanks for listening

Jason - I couldn't agree with you more.

Re: Re: Crusades Sets:Crossbows

Do not suffer anymore,

I trust Strelets: for sure he makes one (or two) mini-set of medieval crosswmen soon, with kneeling and standing soldiers.

What do you think?

PS: More mounted muslim archers are also needed!! The ratio gives the turcopoles the advantage against the seljukes!!
