More Saga recruits

Since the Brutality of the Vikings blood letting I got these finished. Gripping Beast plastics. I experimented a little and came up with the Viking with two weapons. The raised sword viking was a hand with a weapon swap. Cut off a hand with a Spear to create it. Shields are a mixture of decals (Little Big Men) and painted ones. You can probably tell which are which. The Saxons shields are actually all Decals. I haven't gone down the direction of a cohesive overall connecting colour scheme like you would see in some miniature armys.

I figure I can mix Saxons and Vikings to make an Anglo-Dane warband. So I need to get an Anglo-Dane Axe swinging Warlord completed at some stage to boss them all around. I will also need to create a Saxon War Lord as well.

The plastic sets from Gripping Beast really are good value in my opinion.
