Saxon/Irish Army

I have just finished this army off this week, it is made up of three or four manufactures (as i like to mix up ancient and dark age armies a lot. As I all ready have three dark age armies and I am rapidly running out of storage, I am selling this army (I have sold the army since posting it this afternoon).

The army is designed to be quite flexible, late Saxon or Irish with three core units, two cavalry units one mercenary and one of mounted infantry, and a few skirmishers to finish it off, around 1800 points in WAB terms.

The standards are on printed paper with hand painted highlights particularly happy with the cavalry standard on the mercenary sarjents( they are all from Rays site, cheers mate!). The shields are a mix of LBM transfers and hand painted ones.

I really am looking forward to painting some more uniformed troops this week (7YW Prussians and Hanoverian's) as I am sick of irregular uniforms for the time being...then onto some moderns for a change and then maybe some more Roman auxilia.

cheers
