Saxon Warriors

Here are some close-ups of my Saxon Warband for Dux Bellorum.

I painted the minis some years ago but the bases and movement trays are brand new:) The minis will doubble as all kind of Germanic Barbarians but at the moment they are Saxons;)

In the back I have put the less equiped men as ordinary warriors. In total 4 bases.


1 base with Foot companions with leader, well armourd and equiped.

Most minis are from Foundry, but there ar the occasional mini from other manufacturs to...

The Foot companions are supported by 3 bases of well equiped and armoured Noble Warriors.



Next up will be some Late Roman or/and Romano-British i think...got to have some decent opposition for the Invading Saxons...
