Im going to do the Battle of Northallerton in 10mm I think. Any thoughts on the best late normans and good unarmoured Scots for this scale? There seem to be quite a few choices out there and I also like to mix mfgs for more variety so any comments on comparisons would be great also.

Thanks

Off the top of my head you could probably cobble together a Scots army from the Magister Militum and Pendraken ranges (specifically their dark ages and medieval Irish and Scots as well as some of their Normans and Anglo Saxons). I'd imagine the rank and file wouldn't have changed all that much from the dark ages to the 12th century. The nobleman and retainers may have looked a bit more like Normans but I'm not expert in the period. Here are my dark ages Irish/Scots which are a mix of Magister Militum and Pendraken: link

Those are nice. I think that they would work fine for Galwegians.

So the two ranges are pretty much the same size then or did you keep them in their own units?

Old Glory UK have a Norman range in their " Grand Scale" 10mm If you want more variety.
Kallistra also have some suitable figures, but, at 12mm, they might be a bit too big against Pendraken and the other 10mm figures. I use their WotR Welsh spearman in my early medieval armies.

Rampant: the Magister stuff is slightly bigger/bulkier but those bases are both Pendraken and MM figures mixed together. Once paint is on, the difference in sculpting style and heft isn't really noticeable IMO.

Old Glory are roughly the same size but have thick bases that make them appear taller. Kallistra are significantly bigger as they are 12mm. I have a comparison photo on my blog of WW1 10mm ranges next to Kallistra:

I should also add that I really like the Old Glory 10mm range, their 11th century range of Vikings, Anglo Saxons and Normans is quite nice.

In the TYW tercio formation, all of the figures are OG ECW sculpts except for the 3 shot armed skirmishers in the center front (Pendraken), I think you can see how they mix nicely once painted and based: link

Thanks for all of the comments. I may mix the Old Glory in and just file the bottoms of the bases to try and bring the height down. I love being able to mix for a lot of variety at any scale that I am building armies for.
