The title is pretty self explanatory. I took these shots to post on the LAF Forum in response to a post where it was mentioned that the Saxon Miniatres Arthurians and the Gripping Beast Arthurians ranges were compatible. I don't own any Saxon Mini's Arthurians, though that will soon be remedied but I do have the Saxon Mini's Huscarl pack and I thought that I'd take the opportunity to present a few quick comparison shots.

The Huscarls fit in perfectly, not only in terms of the proportions of the miniatures but also the sculpting style. This should come as no surprise as many of the miniatures I am using for the Hastings demo by both Gripping Beast and Saxon were sculpted by Colin Patten (Salute 2016- be there or be square) and they naturally fit in stylistically as well.

Darrell; thanks for posting those photos. Saxon Miniatures are beautiful looking figures, just ordered the Saxon Warlord pack.

You won't be disappointed, they are really evocative miniatures. They just scream Early Medieval :>)

Let me know what you think of them when you receive them.

That's excellent news and hopefully in time for the Hastings demo I'm hosting at Salute next year :>)

I see from The Saxon Miniatures Facebook page that Colin Patten is also sculpting some Viking Beserker types as well as the Normans.

I'm trying to keep an air of sanity about my purchases of late but they are just so lovely!!

Darrell; I'm past all hope, this just means one more grand kid will have to get a sports scholar to collage. I'm spending the money on Saxon Miniatures!

Received the Saxon War lords yesterday. so anybody who likes Colin older miniatures won't be disappointed. 15 different poses a wee bit smaller than Footsore figures really only noticeable at very close range, most weapons are separate, swords and shields no spears and a very small amount of flash.
Viking War lords pack is next.

Really nice makes one want to get into other periods. I guess that is part of what it is all about perhaps.
