Victrix has announced on their Facebook page that, before releasing their Saxon figures, they will be sculpting some Saxon/Viking archer models. Apparently, they'll accompany those archers with some casualty figures as well.

This range looks quite promising, to say the least. I can't wait to get my hands on these figures! :D

I don't like the Saxon's short sleeve jacket. I've not actually seen any evidence for these, has anyone?

If it wasn't for that, I buy them without hesitation. With them I'll have to have serious thoughts about them...

I feeel they should drop the gambeson; not a fan of those on Northwestern European warriors before about 900 AD.

As the range appears to be Vikings, Saxons and Normans, it is to be assumed they represent the 11th Century.

From the facebook page:-

These are 10th to 11th Century Saxons so the Gambesson is not out of place. Earlier Saxons will come at a later date.

I’m really excited about these. I already have countless vikings but will no doubt get more when these are released.

I really like the gambesons. I’d rather have some decent later Vikings and Saxons (don’t get me started on Normans!)

I personally like the fact that they've included a couple of bodies with gambesons. They will be very useful for kitbashing.

Does that mean that they'll be doing an Early Saxon box set after they've finished working on these ones?

They said they will at a later time.

"This is the fifth and penultimate Viking command figure. One more berserker and then the Viking set will move to the tooling stage."
