Reloading Archers?

   One of the things I really want to make sure I am doing with my Lion Rampant (and family) projects is making the whole scene look like something real is happening and I've not just put down some trays of figures and put scenery on the edges where it won't get in the way. With my 100 year war project I wasn't sure what direction to take. I had some ideas of a camp in one corner and that would look the part but it needed something else. The I came across photos of the massive display board the Perry's did for the anniversary of Agincourt and saw the wagons at the back supplying the archers with new bundles of arrows and I had an idea.
   While the Perry's do supply the cart and it was in my saved basket for a long while, it was Front Rank where I actually bought them from in the end as they were part of my Napoleonics order and it saved on a bit of unnecessary postage charges. The bundles in the back are from the Perry's as their Mounted Knights set has options for mounted archers - I'm tempted to buy another box to do a few mounted archers to protect the baggage in the future but that's for another day.
