While a dedicated siege on Venice is something that in 1795 would never be attempted, some of the weapons are still useful. The massive scorpio crossbow is one such weapon employed by the Vatican forces.
As big as a man, only the strongest fighters can carry them, each aided by an Altar Boy to help carry bolts and aim. The bolts are usually used to pierce through support beams and walls, but do an equally good job knocking people from the roofs of the tightly packed Venice streets.
This set contains a Scorpio Marksman, along with his little helper. From heavy plate armour and a classic crusading helmet, all the way to the robes of the Altar Boy, this model is a fantastic painting project!
Such a big crossbow is extremely handy in Carnevale. The Vatican aren't the fastest gang around, but when you can carry a scorpio to battle, who cares? Effective sniping from a distance is great, and doubled with the fact that you can knock enemies backwards with the force of the bolts, it makes the Scorpio Marksman an excellent choice to help dictate the flow of battle.
Contains 1 resin miniature and 1 plastic base. Cobblestone base pictured not included.
Resin miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled. This kit will require cleaning and assembly, and could need some small holes filled.
