Following on from the Norman Army I am delighted top present the Saxon Army - now all complete bar some banners
previous post can be found here on the Norman Army
These are all predominantly Gripping Beast Dark Age figures sourced from the following boxes
I have mixed up the Vikings and Saxons - I know its heresy but fundamentally they look the same.
There are a lot of figures to assemble.
So the Saxon Army takes shape - first up some skirmishers - please note I am only showing some examples of these units not all of them
Then we have the unarmoured Fyrd - I need a few more of these boys and two more boxes are on order
and of course we have the mainstay of the army - the armoured thegns
Of course there are the Huscarls - an extra big unit and differentiated with their red cloaks. The cloaks came from spares I had from my Fireforge Crusaders
I thought it would be a bit of fun to give the Saxons at least some cavalry - these were created from some Norman Cavalry spares and a box of dark age cavalry.
Finally King Harold and a few command stands (only showing Harold today) - He still needs a flag.
So here is the entire Saxon Army
And that's it...in the next post I'll show both armies side by side (over 1000 figures) and talk about how we are going to play that iconic battle Hastings
Thanks for following
