Any chance of fixing the bows on the wood elf archer figures? Would be nice figures if it wasn't for their bows being so short they barely exist. As they are just now they look kind of half-arsed, as if the modeller decided to change the bow and then just shrugged and thought *f*ck it, it's only fantasy* so left them half done.

and ditto for hill dwarf archers, goblin archers, in fact almost all the 10mm fantasy range's archers - bows all seem to be little stubs

I agree. The high elf archer is the only one with a nicely sculpted bow.

Halflings ones are okay, if you consider they are short and stunted anyway!

yeah, true, halfling ones are nice - but most of the others need proper bows instead of stumps (other than that they're all good figures)

This is actually a reasonable easy fix, it's just the time and cost of remoulding everything.  I'll have a think about it and see if we can get something done at some point.

Nice request, +1 here

The shortness of the bow is the reason I haven't ordered in any of my undead orders to the store any skellies with bow (or any troop with it)

I think we'll probably have wait until Leon's ready to fit them in 'D'. Wink

Any news in bow-update? I'm really interested on the Undead Archers with better bows Smiley

Nothing I'm afraid, just too much on the design schedule elsewhere.  This is one which is probably better suited to a conversion, so if anyone wants to have a go, let me know and I'll send some out.  We can then mould them up and add them to the range.

Bung me some down Leon.
Unless someone else is really keen to do them.
They'll only take a few minutes each to do.

Well I'm having a hard time now preparing the TOEFL exam, but if it isn't done in June, I can give a try if Techno hasn't done it already. Moreover, I plan to do a conversion from the undead mage I got in the command to a "egyptian priest" I suggested some time ago. Modelling in 10mm is hard! Yet I have done some little converting..
