Following one of our previous games we were plotting something for when lockdown finishes. With the ever increasing number of Norman’s available between myself and Martin including a reasonable number of Norman cavalry it seemed that we should have a go at Hastings as a game. We have quite few Saxons which can be bolstered with ‘skulking’ vikings in the back ranks. Bit is felt we were going to need more unarmoured Saxons after all the history is clear not all the Saxons were heavily armoured. I pondered getting some more gripping beast plastics (which I still might do) but then rummaged about in the piles of lead in the dungeon and found I had these guys presumably picked up at a show. Mainly unarmoured, they make a reasonable extra bulk unit of generic Saxons.
They are a mix of figures some GB and Crusader I think, shields done quick and simple 🙂 they aren’t all strictly Saxon figures but I could argue they have picked up armour from their recent victory at Stamford Bridge !
