Army Review: 28mm Normans

After that brief interruption for new shinies, today I return to the series of Army Reviews and move onto my 28mm collections. There aren't as many of these, both in numbers of armies and numbers of figures.

I'm kicking off the 28mm with my Saga Normans:


Warriors with crossbows

More Warriors

Mounted Warriors/Hearthguard


Levy archers

Warlords and standard bearers

The Dux

I really should tart him up with some trim on his tunic and saddlecloth

All the figures here are from Conquest Games - mostly plastics but some metals (archers, crossbowmen and the Dux).

As I very rarely play Saga these days, I'm actually thinking about rebasing one or more of the armies for ADLG. I haven't decided which yet though.. One possibility is to keep the metal figures here for Saga and rebase the plastics for ADLG. Of course, then I'd have to buy some metal Normans for the warriors and hearthguard...


  1. Lovely Army Tamsin. All those hand painted shields = Alan will be proud of you (should decals invite eternal ridicule in our Club!). I think he'll like the Dux figure too :-)

  2. Another fine army, may get my armies out

  3. Ah the one true scale, fabulous stuff Tamsin.

  4. Are you doing T othervPartizan by the way?

  5. @ Paul O'G - cheers! The hand-painted shields were pretty basic designs, so not hard to do :)

    @ Martin C - thanks! Hmm, does that mean I might be starting a trend? :)

    @ Michael A - cheers m'Lord! But there is no one true scale :)

    @ Dave D - thanks! Sadly I won't be making a second visit norrff of Watford this year :)

    @ Clint - cheers! :)

  6. Lovely stuff Tamsin. Good too see the hand painted shields too. That's a lot of foot for Normans!

  7. Lovely army and timely inspiration. Suffering a bit of a loss of mojo with my Normans at the moment.
