If you have any questions about our products then we will answer them here.
I'm currently painting Strelets Vikings and Anglo-Saxon shield walls, and I thought how cool would it be to have a '1066' Big Box: The main Saxon/Viking/Norman sets along with a sprue of Harold Godwinson, Harald Hardrada, and William the Conqueror and other leaders at Stamford Bridge and Hastings.(Earl Tostig, Godwinson's brothers, Bishop Odo)....
We were thinking about such an opportunity. Probably in 2009 we will make one especially for the shop in Hastings.
do you want me to visit the battlefield again or is there a way to get this set the "normal" way too?
Excellent idea! I would buy such a set even though I already own Normans and Saxons. This would be a great way to build up my army.
I recall a stamp set of teh Bayeux tapestry quite catching.i see Hinton Hunt Figs did anniversary 20mm celebrating 1066-1966 looks similar to some of the images.What shop i this ?
Romans, Crusader and Muslim sets I would be very happy. I already have the Norman and Anglo-Saxon sets
For the Vikings: Harald Hardrada (a tall figure fighting two handed), a raven banner (landwaster), and a champion with ax to hold Stamford bridge itself.
the Saxons: Harold Godwinson, his personal banner (described as an 'armed man'??)and a Huscarl bodygaurd
the Normans: William the Conqueror (maybe holding helmet to show his men he had not fallen during a critical moment at Hastings), Eustace of Boulogne carrying William's 'Sacred Banner'(a gift from the Pope), and Bishop Odo wielding his club. All Normans would be on horse of course
I suppose there are many other ideas out there
