    Beautiful work Tim. In keeping with your general theme, will you do Lombards, Bulgarians, Andalusians or Avars at some point?

    Thank you EZ. Sure, I will go full Dark age.
    Let's start with the Viking Hersir:
    The first is a thrall, the last is Leidang & the rest are bondi, of various means.
    Anglo-Saxons next.

    None of those beserkers are wearing bear-skins...Which is what they were known for. :)

    Good point Ciaran.
    With all that fur my banana joke would sound a bit hairy, though.
    Anyway, their momma was so hairy, they almost died of rugburn at birth.


    The last guy is one of the Úlfhéðnar "Wolfmen"
    The 2nd row are (edit: Middle-) Anglo-Saxons: Select Fyrdman, Thegn spearmen, Ceorl.

    Thanks for the input C.


    Lombards and Alans next
    -Edit- Large tubular Saxon quivers attach to the front, from the belt. I have found pictures of both singe (as shown) and double point belt attachment . In the latter case, the quiver hangs verticaly. I am not sure if the latter one is practical for walking and the unit looks funny.
    If anyone strongly prefers the vertical quiver setup I will change the stance, not to have the quiver hanging between the archers legs.

    -edit- I deleted the "joke". Seriously not funny. I am kinda mean when I'm under the weather.
    I love their shield patterns, I could be making them by the dozens.

    Lombards from their conquest of Italy from the Byzantines to their subjugation by the Franks.

    Gastaldi/ Gasindi & unarmored followers, also dismounted.

    Thanks EZ!
    The Alans are the last of the Cimmerians/ Scythian /Sarmatians & the axe is their trademark weapon.

    That might just fill a gap in my Fall of Rome scenario I have in my short-term queue. You don't happen to have an Alan on a horse too, do you?

    An F14 or a Millenium Falcon at some point would be epic.
