Left over from my slow moving Medieval project were a number of arms from the Perry's (Bows and Bills) box set. I have more than enough archers for my Medieval army .
With the help of a sharp knife and some glue I began adding the Perry Medieval archer arms to the Gripping Beast Dark Age warrior bodies.
The only real draw back is that my Dark Age archers are now armed with "long bows". Didn't even occur to me until I had finished the painting!
I have only made 12 figures as archers at this stage. I plan to do another 12 as slingers, straight from the box at some latter time. Can't rush these things!
