Saxon (or Norman) Archers

At last, some more painting! These are part of the batch of Dark Age figures that I want to complete before starting on a new project. They're from the Perry's Crusader range and I think they make ideal generic Dark Age bow armed warriors.




Painted like all the other Saxon/Viking figures - block colours, dip and some quick highlighting. I can use them as levy for either my Norman or Anglo-Danish SAGA forces, or as a skirmisher unit to support my Saxons in War & Conquest.

Still on the table awaiting paint are some villagers and a few casualty dioramas.

The 'generic archer' is arguably the most versatile figure in any wargamer's closet. Great job mate!

Splendid painting, Matt - they look great

Really like color palette on these. The common mustard and tan, with dashes of red and blue across multiple figures tie the whole band together. Dip came out well too!
