Had a thought about representing English longbowmen in LR.
The current option of making them Expert and giving them a better hit value doesn’t do it for me as it does not represent the longbowman’s ability to engage in melee.
I think the the yeomen with mixed weapons option does a better job. Less range but you still get 12 shots and a better melee ability. As LR does not represent massed battles but skirmishes the loss of the range is not a big deal. Perhaps get the 6″ back for a point?
