Re: Gripping Beast Saxons

The Dark-age warriors do very nicely for Saxons and will take head & so helmet swaps with the Saxon Theigns. The only let down is that all the Dark-age warrior heads are bareheaded so you get no pygian caps & you will have to swap the supplied medium shields for bucklers if you believe the buckler h...

Re: Gripping Beast Saxons

Re: Warfare Miniatures Flag Sizes

Barry & Clarence likes their big flags, I think they can be had a more in scale size if you ask for them

Re: Donnybrook - miniatures.

Have a look at the Dixon range as some of his figures fit in nicely and would give a more informal look especially to the pike men. I used them to ad numbers and more variety to French own Militia. I also believe front rank do some armed civilian types but I have not seen them in the flesh. :evil: G...

Re: Donnybrook Quick Question

Re: A little help with French Uniform Color

The exact colour is a bit vague to be honest but appears to have been a light silver grey perhaps with a slight blue hint. I would however not worry at all about the exact shade since it would have drifted from that within days of being on campaign. I tend to mix the colour when I need it and to do ...
