Any suggestions for good Ottonian figures in 15mm for mounted approx 900-950AD?

My preferences are for some variety in the figures and reasonably clean molds. I am specifically not after earlier style Carolingian figures or mounted with kite shield.

I used Old Glory 15mm Ottonian knights, Carolingian medium cavalry for Ottonian cavalry and light horse types, a mix of Slav and Anglo Saxon medium infantry for the foot troops.

These can be seen at the blog, Battle of Firenzuola (923 AD).

OG15s were my first thought too.

Baueda's Swabians are probably suitable though all have swords. I know you said you didn't want Carolingians, but if it is the 'Roman' style helmet you don't want then Baueda also have figures with conical helmets.

I have used a mix of Old Glory as mentioned above and Essex Dark Age range.

Another thought is the 9th -10th century German range from QR miniatures link
though they have a mix of round and kite shields.

Thanks for the suggestions!
And it was nice to see your battle report, Timurilank!

The OG figures look OK but I was hoping for some more dynamic poses really. The Essex range does seem to provide that.

The QR miniatures do look nice too.
