At the head of the collection are these Heavy Infantry soldiers with their spears at the ready. I like that we’re getting a mix of the kite shields in the mix as well as smaller round shields. The chap with the sword would have to be my favourite though.
Maybe as outriders for your force, Warlord also have the Unarmoured Cavalry.
You could use these fellows to harras your enemies flanks and poke at their formation before sending in the foot troops. With light armour, they are open to attack from ranged options but if they get to hit the enemy they could cause some chaos.
Last but not least we have some Norman Archers to throw into the mix.
These fellows are much more of the skirmishing variety and much like the knights, soften up the enemy so your foot troops can get in there and do the slogging to mop up your foes.
I might not be a Norman player (Saxons forever!) but I do like the look of these models for bulking out your Norman force.
What do you think?
