I obviously didn't look closely enough - changed it now though.

I'll be honest - I thought I was going to see a much more structured attack. The end result was quite - shite

They looked the part - but I was expecting something regimental like the troops at Zulu...

I did do archery for a while and loved it  :bigthumb:

Thank goodness!

Maybe Brant can actually watch the video now.

They actually look like a bunch of old guys who are a re-enactment group and are demonstrating the rituals and techniques of a bygone age. I don't think that they are really trying to impress anybody with a show of overwhelming military might. ;D

Okay, those horse archers honestly looked good.  I'd totally brag if I could do that!

The "Geriatric" bit is probably redundant, but yeah.  ;D
