Are you looking for a great set of a historic Saxon Infantry to spice up your ancient armies, improve your school assignments or for a killer diorama of The Battle of Hastings in 1066?
Then this is the figure set for you!
This set depicts a tribe of Saxon warriors armed with multiple weapons.
It is now available at Monster Hobbies.
- This is an unfinished plastic model kit
- Shrink wrapped
- Paint and cement not included
- 50 figures in assorted poses
- Hard but pose-able plastic
- Painting chart included on back of box
Thirteen sets of fifty individual figures
Model kit is easy to assemble and paint
Plastic is pose-able to change the look of the figures
The 13 poses display plenty of action and demonstrate good realistic movement.
None of the figures include any that are on the march, nor any that would suggest the famous Saxon shield wall tactic, but a skilled hobbyist with some warm water can re-position the pose-able plastic to have their shield arms moved to provide suitable wall figures.
Since swords were expensive for Saxons, very few of these figures carry them. To be more realistic to the time period, half the figures in the set carry spears or javelins and axes are also plentiful. Although archers are included in this set, The Saxons never used them as a major part of their battle strategy. The bows here are about the height of the archer, which is thought to have been the actual size. A knife was an essential implement, although no figure is actually using one. The round shields are a reasonable size and their handles are situated in the middle of the shield. Most of the figures carry a shield. All the weapons are good and appear in about the right proportions.
This Imex set is certainly the best Saxon warriors yet produced.
Easy construction suitable to beginner modelers.
