  • Early Saxon Armoured Warriors

    These figures represent the Upper class Early Saxons, Jutes, Angles and Danes (all grouped together under the title Saxon) that invaded Britain (or possibly this was more of a migration?) during the 4th to 6th centuries.
     
    There is a real mix of head options and various helmet styles.
     
    Fur cloak options have been added for some extra character. Weapons include swords, spears, javelins, hand axes and some Angons with the metal socketed spearheads.
     
    As well as fighting the Late Romans, they were also hired by the Romans fighting as mercenaries.They fought the Romano British for dominance of Britain for hundreds of years, forcing the original inhabitants of Britain West and North.
     
    Early Saxons tended to use a smaller round shield for parrying and punching with. They would deliver a charge, hurling javelins as they ran towards the enemy and closed with spear, sword, axe or Seax. Shield wall tactics started to come in later. We have included small bucklers but also larger round shields so customers can field whichever style they prefer.
     
    These figures can easily be used as other Dark age Germanic warriors and even be mixed with later Saxons and Vikings. Figures from the Late Romans sets would not look out of place alongside these in a warband. All adding massive amounts of variety to our ever expanding Dark age range.
     
    What you get:
     
    36 x armoured warrior bodies
     
    36 x small round bucklers (9mm in diameter)
     
    36 x larger round shields, half flat and half slightly domed (14mm in diameter)
     
    84 x helmeted heads
     
    An assortment of sword, axe, javelin and spear arms

  • Late Roman Cataphracts

    16 x Late Roman Horse Cataphract figures

    We use the term Cataphract to describe a heavily armoured cavalrymen, covered from head to foot in armour of mail, scales and plates, sitting on a fully armoured horse.

    Scale armour was often of metal scales such as iron or bronze but could also be made of horn, bone or hardened leather which could be in various colours such as red and green.

    The horses often had an elaborate head piece to protect its face and a mesh to defend the eyes. These could be of various metals or leather.

    The first regiments of Cataphractarii were introduced by the Emperor Trajan in the early 2nd Century.

    We see a marked increase in Regiments of Cataphratarii in the Roman army from the reign of the Emperor Constantius II during the early to middle 4th Century as they came more and more into conflict with the Sassanid Persian empire who employed large numbers of Cataphracts and Clibanarii.

    Cataphracts would go into combat at the trot rather than the charge, as they were so heavy, charging would tire the horse out quickly. This also helped keep the advancing line steady for maximum impact of the long Kontos (lance) They would joust and fence with the long Kontos and revert to sword or axe when the Kontos broke. The are records of kontos blades decapitating heads with a thrust or a swipe!

    Infantry feared the Cataphract charge and had to form dense defensive blocks to prevent them breaking through.

    These fabulous figures can be made with either Kontos upright or Kontos levelled and have numerous head variants. The horses are in trotting poses and covered in wonderfully crisp scale armour with various head options. The whole effect will give you a varied and dynamic regiment of Cataphracts to strike fear into the opponents.

    What you get in the set

    16 x Riders and horses
    8 x Different horse head options. Separate tails to add a little more movement to the models.
    13 x head options for the riders.
    16 x axes to hang from the right of the saddle and 16 x swords in scabbards.
    Draco standard bearer arm option.
    The rider bodies are depicted in various armour styles including mail, lamellar and scales. The arms and legs are covered in flexible, tubular metal rings.
    Each rider has two arm pose options. Either upright Kontos or Kontos at the level.

  • Late Roman Horse Archers

    12 x Late Roman Horse Archer figures

    12 superbly detailed and animated models shooting to the front, side and rear representing the agility of these skilled mounted skirmishers. They come equipped with a powerful composite bow, bow case, arrow quiver, sword and small round shield strapped to their upper left arm.

    The Romans steadily increased the use of mounted horse archers in the army as they came into conflict with more and more Stepp nomad peoples who excelled with the use of the bow, as well as having to face the arrow storms of Sassanid Persian Horse archers. Many of the Roman horse archer units were recruited from the very enemies they had to face.

    The Notia Dignitatum a late Roman document listing the units of the Western and Eastern halves of the Empire lists nine units of light horse archers. There was probably a considerable amount more units in the Eastern Half of the Empire but the information is not as complete for this part of the Empire, but makes sense since most horse archer enemies were in the east.

    These miniatures don’t have to be restricted to just use as Late Romans. They can be used as Early Byzantines representing the men that fought for Belisarius against the Sassanids and the reconquest of Italy from the Goths. And they can be used as Palmyran horse archers. Palmyra was a client state of Rome based in Syria. They acted as a buffer state against the Sassanid Empire and scored a notable victory over the Sassanids under their king Odenathus.

    The Late Roman army was a fearsome foe. Its use of mixed arms, infantry and cavalry gave it flexibility and strength.

    PACK CONTENTS

    12 riders and 12 horses
    The torso is separate to the lower body so you can swap torsos onto alternative lower legs and rotate the torso to create more poses.
    A selection of powerful composite bow arms either being drawn back to shoot, loosed or being loaded.
    There is a selection of Bow cases and arrow quivers, plus small round shields to strap to the upper left arm and sword scabbards.
    There is a standard bearer option of an arm holding a Draco standard.
    The horse frames contain water canteens and bed rolls as optional extras. You do not use the javelin cases on these figures (These can be used as spare parts on other miniatures)

Or the Equites Mauri Alites “Swift Moors”! We have given these heads a North African look and given them a hairstyle very similar to the Numidians.

  • Late Saxons Anglo Danes

    The Late Saxon/Anglo Dane set contains 60 superbly detailed miniatures.
     
    The Saxons fielded mostly infantry armies. Cavalry are disputed but they were good horsemen and would sometimes ride to battle as well as walk. But this set represent the hardy Saxon Fyrd on foot. You have armoured and unarmoured figures in the set.
     
    The armoured figures representing more well off and equipped select Fyrd or Theigns. The Unarmoured represent the standard not so well off Fyrd but still equipped with a stout shield and assortment of helmets and spears, swords and Saxes. Hand axes have not been included in this set not because the Saxons did not use hand axes but because the Viking set has a plethora of spare hand axes. You can use a lot of these with the new Saxon set.
     
    The command frame has a monk and some armoured warriors that can be used as commanders, standard bearers and also when equipped with double handed Dane axes as Anglo Danish Huscarls.

  • Norman Unarmoured Cavalry

    The Norman Unarmoured Cavalry set includes 12 highly detailed 28mm plastic figures with a whole host of head, weapon and shield options.
     
    These represent the mounted sergeants and retainers that would fight alongside the more heavily equipped Norman knights. Quite possibly they formed the second rank to a Norman cavalry charge to add weight and impetus.
     
    With this set you can create Normans, Bretons, Spanish, Islamic/Andalusian light cavalry or early Crusader knight retainers/squires.
     
    What do you get?
     
    6 Sprues (3 horse sprues & 3 rider sprues)
    12 Mounted Figures
    24 Head/Helmet Options
    4 Shield options (Round, Kite, Long Heater, Adaga)
    6 different weapons (Spears, swords, axes, maces, daggers and javelins)
    The many shield and weapon options lets you field these figures as Breton light cavalry armed with javelins and light spears. They would skirmish with the enemy and give your Breton or Norman army some very useful fast moving skirmishers and great for following up a broken enemy.
     
    We also have some Islamic headwear, shields, and swords, allowing you to deploy them as Andalusian cavalry in the tumultuous battles of Spain, where they fought for both Muslim and Christian kingdoms during the era of El Cid and the Reconquista.
     
    As well as European and Spanish cavalry, you can also use these miniatures in the early Crusades as Knights retainers, sergeants and squires. Many Crusaders adopted Arab-inspired headgear, meaning you can use the Islamic heads for your Crusader troops.
     
    This set of miniatures is a valuable addition to your Late Dark Age and Early Medieval armies, and their versatility extends even to the realm of fantasy, where they can serve as human or elf cavalry. The possibilities are endless!
