Two more themed militia units from Peronne one of the towns which Henry V crossed on the way to the coast. A crossbow unit with some pavises and some militia armed with axes.
and second a small unit of archers. colours mainly blue and yellow but still not very uniform just the colours somewhere in their clothes.

Another go at a English Archer unit. This time a little more uniform. Decided to place them on 60mmX40mm. Personally I like the look better than individually based figures. well all my hyw will be a mix, giving me opportunities to play different games from big battles to small skirmishes. Usually I place 5 figures on each base. It gives the option to tell small stories or adding a theme to the unit. This unit have 4 Archers charging out of the line in the middle, maybe to take out those wounded men at arms or the knights caught in the mud.... Also decided to give the bases some turfs, nothing over the top...actually had to stop myself when I was about to throw in all other kinds of turfs and flowers, since the rest of my army at the moment only have plain soil.
variation I added some metals. Again a joy to paint and quite fast. As the others I really went light on the bases. Only "boring" soil. Well think it goes okay for this. Might be my last individually based inf.troops preferring the 40mmx60mm bases.
