You can’t see the chest on the ones aiming, but I did paint the crosses on the chests of the ones carrying their crossbows. At some point this detail is going to drive me crazy, as it’s tough to paint in some spots.

These miniatures are again from Legio Heroica. These are the Military Orders Crossbowmen (CRU18). There are 3 different variants: 2 with chain mail and 1 with padded armour. The figure with padded armour is also walking with the crossbow, while the others are aiming them. Each pack contains 8 miniatures with the crossbows separate castings to the rest of the figure.
