The figures duly arrived and I was very happy to see some of them were painted, and very nicely too, by Rodger, he of Rebel Barracks fame and frequent commenter on this blog. Going through the figures there was more than enough for a 1066 pocket project, although I have ordered a battlepack of Anglo-Saxon fyrd from Lancashire Games (which mix in nicely with these Essex Miniatures - I checked) to create the bulk of the English infantry.
So after some rebasing, here is what we have so far:
|The general's unit of huscarles.|
|A second unit of huscarles|
|The core of the English line - both units together|
|English lights - archers.|
|English lights - javelinmen|
|A unit of Norman knights|
|And from another angle (no pun intended)|
So a big thanks to Geoff and also to Rodger for his wonderful painting. I hope I can match it withe the rest of the figures.
