I've not seen them James, so I don't know.  More generally, when Essex Miniatures stocked Hovels I had a look at some of their other products and I thought they were nice. They didn't seem especially small but I didn't have a 28 with me and Essex sell 25s.

Richard, following extensive research I put together some highly accurate scratch builds. These are based on the latest archaeological evidence. I could put some together for you if you like?

PS the old west figure was the only one I had to hand so sorry to spoil the illusion

Not bad, mate, but Corn Flakes are a much better choice as a basis for Dark Ages stuff.
And you forgot to make a river out of the paper wrapper.

What? You mean you haven't heard of the legendary Saxon warriors Snaphaelred, Crackric and Popmund?

Since these names roll off the tongue so well, I am going to use them in my Saxon force.

Those GB buildings do look pretty good actually. I'd go as far to say better than my efforts.

Richard, I try my best!  ;)

It's only right that their place in Saxon Lore is recognised!
