The unit of 4 crossbowmen represents the hard core mercenary crossbow troops with heavy armour. By this time, there were roving bands of these all over Europe, with many in Spain and France. I painted them in bright, wealthy colours, but not as Granadines themselves. They are from the Essex Crusader line of Frankish Crossbow (CRU42) with the one head wrap sculpted on using graystuff.
