Well finally after 18 months I have finally finished the third castle add on, the Archers. They are another fine set of Valdemar figures that fit in well with the rest of life that went on around the castle back then. Archery would have been one activity that would be very much at the fore and these guys fit the scene perfectly.
There isn’t really much to say apart from the cart in the lane leading to the village (Paul Bod has covered this very well on his site so I won’t go on about it). It is very heavy and has caused a lot of grief but the figures that come with it are superb. Maybe if they could have saved some metal and made it lighter… anyway enough of my grumbles about the wagon! The figures are well made and great for what I would imagine just ordinary mundane life as we know it would have been like.
I have added a few plastic guys for a bit of fun, I’m not sure what’s in the wagon that it needs an escort of big bull mastiffs but I would imagine it might be a vaccine for the plague!
Not much more to add apart from the targets, they are just bits of string that I coiled tightly and super glued to a thin bit of balsawood and stuck a paper punch of red paper to the centre and added the great little arrows to them.
