Anglo Saxons fielded mostly infantry armies. Cavalry are disputed but they were good horsemen and would sometimes ride to battle as well as walk. But this set represent the hardy Saxon Fyrd on foot. The armoured and unarmoured figures in this set represent the 11th century Anglo Saxon force with Anglo Dane heavily armored troops included..
The armoured figures representing more well off and equipped select Fyrd or Thegns. The Unarmoured represent the standard not so well off Fyrd but still equipped with a stout shield and assortment of helmets and spears, swords and Saxes.
The command frame has a monk and some armoured warriors that can be used as commanders, standard bearers and also when equipped with double handed Dane axes as Anglo Danish Huscarls.
