Hear The Rattle Of Chainmail From Saxon’s Norman Heavy Infantry

September 6, 2016 by brennon

Saxon Miniatures have added some more awesome miniatures to their Dark Age collection. This time around they’re focusing in on the Normans and their Heavy Infantry.

Norman Heavy Infantry

As you can see they are heavily armoured, all of them wearing chainmail over heavy leather armour. All of them sport metal helmets too. While we’re seeing a few swords in there for the leaders of each band of warriors the majority of them are armed with spears.

Norman Spearmen

This set of miniatures can either be picked up as a set of eight, broken down into both A and B, or as a full sixteen models for when you really want to hammer home the spear point.

While I’m certainly more of a Anglo Saxon player when it comes to the Dark Ages I very much like the look of these Normans. The fearsome sight of all that chainmail and a thicket of spears coming towards you would be a daunting prospect.

What do you think of these Norman warriors?
