Description

While the crossbow is relatively easy to use and quite powerful, it leaves the user quite vulnerable during the slow reload process. Therefore it makes sense to give the crossbowmen a large shield. These men wear a large pavise shield on their backs, which they turn to the enemy so that they're protected while reloading.
