Dark Age extras

A box of Gripping Beast's Dark Age Warriors provided the recruits for this group.

I was told that these guys would be required for a game in a few weeks time. 12 figures he said, so here they are.


  Six are armed with spears.....
......and the other six are armed with axes and swords.

 Found a container the other week full of "way out of date" Kiwi 2 cent pieces. I thought they were a good size for figure bases so I have used them here. Might have to re-base all my Dark Age troops now!



 The rest of the box will be made up into levy type troops for Saga with a few left overs.
