Thanks for uploading! Wow those figures seem quite large, though.

Not really the problem is the saxon is not very tall

Hey, IIRC OG Vikings are in strips, why you cut them off?   ::)

The size - they are a bit taller then GW Empire men and comparable with GW Marauders (but more elegant as soon as this word may fit to Vikings).

I take three strips and will make a unit of vikings in lose order mixed with a few pendraken saxon fyrd figures with them. Also I take apart 3 figures to make a command base. One figure had the axehead broken, o I take a banner from pendraken sassanid persian and I somehow (with cyanocrilate and green sutff) fix the broken figure.

I am intending to give this figures a triple mission:
- Expanding my dark age collection (for byzantine army or mercenaries of any army used as one more of infantry) for WMA. Maybe even start a viking army in the future.
- Could work as marauders Norse people if it iI ran my regular maruader y beastmen and still need more infantry  for a battle in WM
- Finally I will like to have a couple of games of Dux Bellorum, so I am making a 32 points of Sea raiders. They will be 3 elements of Noble Jutland Warriors.

OG's constant trouble - their alloy contains too many lead...

I was considering these to be useable as Dunlendings for 10mm War of the Ring.
