I like this one. I've used them with brown pants, bows, quivers, unshaven faces and peasant caps and I really liked them. Since then I've swapped them for Ashigaru though. If you're going for realism, some leather armour is the best archers would get :mrgreen:

I like the new forestman torso for archers. Sadly though I only have 5 of them...
I mean this one:

This pic pretty much sums up how I view my archers. Braveheart was also kinda a big influence on me, so I use nasal helms for archers and kettle helms for infantry.

I have a pretty good standing army of Lion themed knights/soldiers and I found that this one works for me:

But only when paired with the matched legs:

If you don't have the two together the torso is just too plain, but together it really does a good job. Any helm will do to jazz it up as a uniform for a light tunic look without much armor. Armor is for the cavalry, pikemen and front line troops. If you've wasted those resources on your archers, you've already lost your hold. :wink:

Not a bad torso. Although, I like using the new LOTR Rohan soldier torso for archers. Although that is one sweet torso! :D

Add a green cape and Megablocks yes! althoug the rohan soldier for me holds a shared number 1 place with that one ;)

I'll agree with you there. Depends on how heavily armored you want your archers to be, I suppose :)

Kinda nice that they are both in the green family. You can really set up a good set of archers for your Kingdoms Dragons now!
