As I already have a few Saxons lying about from my WAB and SAGA days, I will start with that army.
A DB army consists of 32 points made up from a good selection of troop types. Options for the Saxons are somewhat limited – but I certainly do not see a problem with that.
I have recently discovered Dalluppror’s blog where he has recently been playing DB. He listed the following as a Saxon force:
1x Foot Companions with Leader
2x Foot Nobles
5x Foot Warriors
2x Foot Skirmishers one with Sling and one with Javelins
Seems a reasonable place to begin.
I will be using plastics for the most part for this army, using the excellent offerings from Gripping Beast and Wargames Factory.
These will give a great look to the army – and at a very low cost.
Total figures required:
1x Foot Companions with Leader – 8 figures
2x Foot Nobles – 16 figures
5x Foot Warriors – 40 figures
2x Foot Skirmishers one with Sling and one with Javelins – 8 figures
Total: 72 figures.
