The DARK AGES

15mm Pewter Figurines

pack sizes : 8 foot or 4 mounted unless stated otherwise

After the Legions left Britain for the last time around 410AD, the province became prey to invading armies of Picts, Scotti(Irish) and above all, the Germanic Angels, Saxons and Jutes. The Romano British had to look to their own defence and valiantly resisted under leaders like Ambrosius and the semi-legendary Arthur. Their armies were usually composed of a levy of infantry mlitia supported by a local leaders mounted retinue. The Romano British offered stern resistance to the invaders for over 2 centuries. Indeed, the Strathclyde Britons maintained an independant state until the 10th Century and the Welsh until the 13th Century. More information on the period and a set of fast play wargame rules can be found in our best selling book 'Glutter of Ravens'. Go HERE for further details.

This range represents the bulk of the western Germanic peoples of the migration period. It includes such tribes as the Angels, Jutes Frisians and Allamani as well as Saxons. All were primarily infantry armies which from the mid 3rd Century AD raided widely into the Roman Empire, eventually going on to carve out new lands for themselves at its expense. Their greatest and most enduring success came with the conquest of the old Roman province of Britannia.

The Franks occupied parts of North West Germany originally, but migrated South to carve out a new homeland in Northern France and Belgium as well as parts of West Germany towards the end of the Roman Empire in the West. In 507AD Clovis, king of the Franks defeated the Visigoths under Alaric II at the battle of Vouille, thus giving shape to the modern state of France. Although they did make some use of cavalry, the early Franks were noted for their fierce infantry who weilded their throwing axes(Francisca) and heavy javelins(Angon) with deadly effect. Their tactics were not terribly sophisticated, usually consisting of a series of wild charges in a dense mass or standing their ground on the defensive in huddled clumps. Their doggedness however brought them much success (as well as the occasional disaster!)

The Picts appear to have been a fusion of Celtic blood with local stock who dominated the highlands of Scotland for most of the first millenium A.D. They were a warlike people, well practiceed in combat, who managed to maintain independant kingdoms until the middle of the 9th century when they combined with the Scots-Irish to create the unified state of Scotland. Their victory at Nectans Mere in 685 over the Anglo-Saxon Northumbrians halted the expansion of the Germanic invaders and ensured that Celtic culture would dominate in the North of Britain.
