Time off in the summer provided the opportunity to do some more work on the Dark Age collection.

They are impressive. Nice mix of plastics and metals, time for the plastic haters to stop hating maybe.

Looks great! Yes, plastics look good. I just don't want to assemble things that much.

Really well done. They look the part.

Thanks for your comments chaps.

I don't come at plastics with any preconceptions taking them on their merits with the advantages and disadvantages plastic has to offer.

I also started in the hobby from a heritage of building plastic kits so really love the construction process and the ability to scratch build and personalise a collection that plastic offers.

I hope the pictures show the potential of these plastic ranges.

Who is the head taker? That is a facet of A-S "culture" that I have never read about.

Perhaps a collector for the "heafod stocc"?

Cool. Thanks for the link. Seems a bit odd in an army. That threw me.

The head taker is King Penda, the killer of kings, King of Mercia and last pagan Anglo-Saxon King in England. As a Mercian myself, l thought he rather fitted the bill for my character figure.
