More Muslims from BTD's Warriors of Islam range muster out from the painting desk. This time, one Impetvs-sized unit of crossbowmen. As mentioned before, a really handsome looking line of figures. Note for this stand, I provided protection to the slow-loading, vulnerable to cavalry, crossbowmen in the form of two, flanking spearmen.
I opted for the 'T' type (missile troop) basing rather than the 'S' (skirmish type) basing. 'T' based crossbowmen carry a bit more punch, are a little less disciplined, and move a little more slowly than the 'S' crossbowmen. Since most of the Impetvs lists allow crossbowmen to be fielded as either missile or skirmish, my next batch of crossbowmen may be built as skirmishers to provide variety. If built as skirmishers, I would mount four figures per base.
