Anglo Saxons - Strelets

    Country:
    Germany
    Set M003, the second set from Strelets titelled "Anglo Saxons". The first set (016) which came out a couple of years before this lot, is, IMHO, as titelled Anglo Saxons, a bit of a mess.
    Not to say they haven´t got a use, a lot of them could easily be employed as medieval levy types.

    This lot are the Saxon Shield wall bods. As both Vikings and Anglo Saxons looked very similar they could be added to the Viking set M004 to create quite an impressive 24 man Shield wall. Add other bods from the various Viking and Anglo Saxon sets which are holding thier shields to the front and it could be as many 30 bods wide.
    Add to that, headswops, weapon swops and Bods from other makes and the wall could get endlessly wide. Something to do one day…...perhaps :)

    12 bods, very little Flash.
    The sprue also has A Sword, an Axe, two spears and three shields (two round, one Kite)
    Three of the bods carry Kite shields. Two are already attached but they could be easily replaced with round shields.
    The Kite Shield and one of the round shields have odd looking "riveting" around the rims so I replaced them with ones from the Zvezda Vikings set.
    The spears got ditched in favour of one handed weapons.

    What you get in the Strelets Stamford Bridge big box set if only one of each pose from each sprue is painted and no conversions.
    39 Anglo Saxons and 39 Vikings.
