I have some friends falling right along with me. Most of may army choices are as opponents to what they have or are buying. Those Saxons will definitely need some opposing forces bought; they were offered at a good price and gave me an opportunity to see how I like Viking Forge figures without dealing with their website. I have been looking at the II/81 lists, those hit an old interest point of mine...but all that cavalry gets expensive fast. I have to cut myself off for a bit while I digest these armies (I also have II/53 in process) and while I work through building up terrain.
Did I mention I *just* fell down this rabbit hole? Somehow I missed DBA over the past decades of gaming. My friends and I both feel a bit like Dug the dog in Up. Squirrel! So many cool lists & figures to explore.
Taking advantage of the Museum miniatures sale I've ordered some Normans/Bretons to use in a Viking Leidang III/40d army.😁
A month later I've got my grubby paws on them since they were bought as a Birthday present.Now I've seen them I'm very impressed with the detail....and the difference in scale with the Essex figures I already have is minimal.🙂
