I did a few matches of Viking (b) vs Mid Saxon (b) and I think I found a reasonable balance.

Read all about it here…

Of course, if you actually like side support, then this won't be of much use to you. wink

The new Saxon list is 1xBd gen,2xBd,8xSp,1xPs.

I thought this might help.

That's the Anglo Dane list unless Phil is using it for all things Saxon. My draft definitely says Anglo Dane for that list. Thanks for posting though.

Nope, Saxon.
Anglo Dane is now..
1xBd (gen), 2xBd, 4xSp, 4xHd (lesser fyrd), 1x Ps.

I just won a game vs Normans last night with this list.

Very nice! You even went with the lesser Fyrd option. I'm impressed! So it would seem that some of the lists have been reworked since the lists were put out for comments then?

Yes, books 3 & 4 are being proofread. The 4xHd is not an option! I'll get you Saxon A) list later when I am not on a tablet. It hasn't changed much.

Thanks guys. The (a) list is not too different from the original 2.2 version. The (b) list is MUCH different! grin
