I've finished enough of my Essex Normans to field a DBA army; many more await painting. If I got focused, I could use them for HoTT too.

Very nicely done.

Perfect for HoTT. Taillefer the minstrel as a Paladin, Odo as Cleric. Crossbow as Shooters, Bretons as Riders.

Cheers,

I like them.

Lovely!
You of course need the Anglo-Saxons now…
And then that forces you to get the Vikings…which of course necessitates the Scots, who were of course fighting the Welsh…and so on…

Nice!

Do the Anglo-Danes/Saxons have a chance of winning against the Normans in DBA? I ask because I have some unpainted 1/72 Vikings and Saxons and have thought about getting some Normans.

Thanks; I've already got all the other armies for a refight of 1066. This is the second Norman one. The Anglo-Saxons are more competitive against Viking blades now; I'm not sure if they're that good against knights. I've not played many games of that matchup.

Jeigheff, I've just finished running a six player DBA3 1002AD campaign that included 3 battles between Normans and Saxons. The Normans won only once (4-0) and lost twice (4-0 and 6-0). The Norman tactic of a massed charge by the knights into the Saxon battle line was either very successful or a total failure.

Thanks for the info! I just might buy some Normans.
