We have more accounts than I can shake a lego stick at from the medieval period of excellent marksmen. Not all crossbows were created equal. Some were lower powered but quicker to reload. the lower ones for war usually 4-6 a minute, slower usually about 2. My friends pulling over 120 pounds draw can get nearly 20 arrows from a longbow a minute though at 230 yards at least.
Bows were common all over Europe for war in the Medieval period. Thats one reason how the French win the 100 Years War. They form their companies of ordinance (archer heavy) and the Franc Archers, beating the English at their own game at Castillon for example. The crossbow though was indeed a major part of warfare on the continent, likely the more common missile weapon till the 16th but bows find significant use still.

Get ready for more bricks!
LEGO Factory is proudly facing the launch of two new fantastic Space exclusives. When Star Justice and Space Skulls touchdown at LEGO Factory in April, the LEGO Factory palette (within LEGO Digital Designer) will be updated and take into account all the new and exciting elements that are being used in building the Space sets. You too can build you very own Space designs!
More than 180 virtual building bricks will be added to the new My Own Design palette bringing the total number of elements to more than 900.
The even larger palette of elements includes many new shapes to offer even greater building possibilities.
Attention My Own Designers!
Certain elements in the current palette will be removed as part of the next My Own Design palette update.
My Own Design builders who have models built using the current palette, including those uploaded to the LEGO Factory Gallery, should be aware that certain elements used in their model designs may need to be replaced.
