First unit of the Saxons

I bought a couple of boxes of Gripping Beasts' new Dark Ages figures.  I will have a review on that box set at some point.  Having worked a bit with them I have a good understanding of what can be done with the figures now.

Anyways I have had these Saxon Thegns for awhile.  The kit in my opinion is not quite as good as the Viking kit by still pretty good.  Its a big unit, but made to be somewhat modular with the Thegns up front and the Fryd consisting of the new Dark Ages figures in the back.

I did convert a few models.  The movement tray is actually for my Chaos army, just using it for display purposes at the moment.
Like I did with the Vikings, I'll paint the shields separate and then attach them later.

More Saxons to come.  Haven't had time to shop for a camera at the moment to replace my old Nikon, so the pics are a bit rough, which also means we will have to wait for showing my horde of painted Vikings.
