Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Carolingian mini sets and enemies ?

Bulgarians, Magyars and all the other eastern European nations between Austria and Russia are still not really covered in figures...

Re: Carolingian mini sets and enemies ?

I agree RHR,
a mini set each of Carolingian infantry and cavalry would be nice! Another enemy of the Vikings.

but the other suggestions are also good: Steppe Nomads for the Dark Ages are completely AWOL in 1/72 plastics. Maybe a set of light horse archers and another of heavy lancers? Most of these guys would be fairly universal in appearance. I think hair-style was the most distinguishing feature between nomad groups-various scalp-locks, long hair, etc

I've thought about taking Tumbling Dice Normans and turning them into psuedo-Carolingians by exchanging there kite shields for round shields. They won't be perfect because the distinctive Carolingian helmets from the manuscript illustrations would be missing.

Re: Carolingian mini sets and enemies ?

i agree more dark ages and crusades
