"Cool" is just a euphemism for "cinematic." But the original poster said his game is mostly not cinematic. This seems to me to be a fundamental conflict between the GM's preferences and the players' preferences.

Sure, you can stage combats wherein the archers are featured, but in any instance that isn't staged they'll go right back to being support. I don't see how you can really change this without going cinematic.
