Size comparision of Saxons from various manufacturers

Size comparision of Saxons from various manufacturers

Beccas wanted a comparison if West Wind miniatures with Gripping Beast, so I grabbed whatever miniatures I had and took a photo.  What you see are four miniatures from different manufactures of 28mm Dark Age miniatures.  I am building up a Saxon army which can be used as an early and later Saxon army.  The first (L-R) is a West Wind miniature.  These minis come with different head combinations, I really like the poses and variations.  Next to it is a Gripping Beast, Late Roman which I will be using as a Saxon, basically because early Saxons used much Roman military equipment that they either bought, were supplied with or stripped from the dead after battle. The next is an Early Saxon from Musketeer Miniatures. Lovely miniatures, but the big beards and hair give them a little fantasy edge, still I think they are great.  Finally is a Renegade Miniatures, Late Saxon, the bulkiest of the selection displayed and probably the least exciting range in regards to poses.

In conclusion, I feel that they all fit well together, especially the Gripping Beast and West Wind.  My Early Saxon units will be a combination of GB, WW and MM, which will be added to by RM when I make up a Later Saxon army.

Oh, I also have some Crusader Miniatures Varangian Guard, which I will be using as Huscarls in a later army.  Both the RM and CM are bulky, but en mass it’s not going to make too much difference.

Hope that helps Beccas!

    Having a bit of trouble with the pic – the photo is 1000px wide, but WP is only displaying about half of that. You may want to edit the picture display to medium with a link to the full photo.

    Over all – nice reference and I like the paint jobs.

      I reduced the size of the image, hopefully it helps if anyone is having problems. Let me know if you still are.
