Very nice, but my only quibble is with the sculptor – the Anglo-Danish huscarls used a left handed swing to hit the unshielded side of their opponent. These have a mixture of right-handed and left-handed (not such a good idea in the battle-line) grin

Thanks :-)
@Kevin…
They havenŽt quite got the swing of it yet grin
I did notice that when painting them, well spotted. IŽll keep the lefties away from the righties in the battle line

I suspect they're just aiming to take the head off some Norman knight's nag – doesn't matter which you side you take that off from.
