This will sound silly and simple but any one got any simple ways to make bows for the two models in the image ? I know I can simply bend some wire ha but is the better ways to make them look good
Any help appreciated
Thanks

I would try to sculpt something. As they are large models they need Large Bows. Start with an armature (i use paper clips generally) for the general shape and then secure the middle of the bow with green stuff and wait for it to cure completely. then in thin layer build up to the design you'd be happy with. Because they are Nurgly you can get away with imperfections. I wouldn't bother with Bowstrings as they will likely just break.

Would using plastic rod or plastic cocktail sticks work, use a little heat to put a bend in them, the cocktail sticks will already have a tapered end

also, old bretonnian bowmen had some easy cut and glue long bows...those models come a dime a dozen nowadays...
