A local player called Steve (Onyx) used Korean crossbowmen.

I’ve used these Korean Crossbowmen from 1st Corps as proxies for my Corsair Arbalesters. The pavisse shields are made from plastic tube. By placing the Shadowlord in the formation to stop them being shot at from long range and then putting the Betrayer in there aswell to allow re-rolls on all missed shots, this formation was quite a handful for my opponents.

I have been checking out that site over the years. It's the best there is for Lord of the Rings terrain.
LOTR: 3000pts ANGMAR, 1200 MINAS TIRITH, 2000 DWARFS, 12000 ELVES. I HAVE A PROBLEM... not enough models. :mrgreen:

By coincidence, the same person (Steve 'Onyx') added some dark elf corsairs into the same army as Black numenoreans, so you can actually see the contrast in sizes
