ARMBRUSTSCHUTZEN


Crossbows are a staple of any Imperial force.
The small garrison at Heiligsheld is no different.

This particular lot are lead by sergeant ‘Short’ Basil as his men call him, a veteran of many a skirmish and more than capable of bullseying the eye of a bull at some prescribed distance. He keeps his lucky bolt in his cap.
It was shot at him from behind by a goblin war chief, the bolt miraculously tore through his shirt, bounced around the inside of his breastplate and came out through the back again and then killed the war chiefs wolf. *

Basil keeps it in his cap as a good luck charm.

* So Basil claims.
