I would probably have to see it in motion, in the stationary picture it looks just silly.
Here's my gallery: http://merlkir.deviantart.com/

I'm now painting and drawing commissions. I'll paint portraits, pets, girlfriends, favourite characters..you name it. Send me a PM if interested ;)

well, it's not much sillier than what you get in native, it's just a big black line. just out of curiosity, would the crossbow projectiles be forced to look the same, and if so, does it still look alright? maybe it'd just make the bolt look like it's travelling relatively more quickly, because it's even more elongated, and that'd make sense since crossbows launch bolts more powerfully.

You can assign each missile a different in-flight model so the in-flight bolts are slightly thinner and shorter than the arrows (scaled by the same ratio). The different types of arrow also look different, but I don't know how many Raz might use in the mod.

sweet, no worries then. it'll be interesting to see how they look in motion, but it looks promising.

true, but Raz's made the arrows actual scaled projectiles and I would like to see how THAT looks in motion also.

The problem with normal sized arrows is that they are very difficult to see, especially at lower frame rates (and looking at the size of the battles, a fair few people are going to have less than perfect performance). Crossbow fire becomes virtually invisible, and although you may catch the occasional glimpse of a bolt it isn't enough to either see from what direction you're being attacked from or to properly defend yourself. It doesn't look as impressive and it is very difficult to fight against.

if you look at the screenshots on the previous page, trebuchets and manlets are there.

I've been playing the current build of HW and the arrows and bolts look wonderful. With the good sounds from the soundpack (awesome swords and cries, everything cool) the arrows are truly amazing and look and sound twice as real as in vanilla.

I was sorely tempted to use a crossbow character instead of a Knight due to the sound effects, but my need for a lance and horse overcame it in the end.

I've played the whole day and it's good. Very cool, the sounds give it a whole new feel. I'm really a knight, not some petty manhunter ;) But without the sieges (raz's still working on them) it's just the same all over again..kill this muslim party, kill that one after that..

oh that's easy:
slot 1 = 1h sword or an axe of some kind maybe
slot 2 = lance
slot 3 = crossbow
slot 4 = bolts

I have a lance, sword and shield. Considering either a mace or an axe.

same here ;) preferring mace over axe, but the heavy ghulam axe is kickass too.
For sword I have a balanced Ibelin. The cutting dmg is insane! it has like 60...
