Fascinating!  I'm planning something similar, in the same area but set fifty or sixty years earlier.  I'll be using Lion Rampant rules.

As a matter of interest, on your map: who are the 'Ebrauc'? I've covered a fair bit of the history of these times, but never come across them.

Hi, you can get some information about the Ebrauc on this website:

These are really outstanding miniatures. I like these paintjobs. Your introduction to the subject is great too, although every European of a certain age should already know what you are talking about  ;) :

So 'Ebrauc' refers to the areas of Bernicia and Deira, both old British names, and both areas later settled by Anglians and Saxons?

Partly anyway. I think the bigger part of what was to become Bernicia was actually Brineich before.

So true  ;) But most of Breton people forgot that part of our ancestors migrated from southwestern Great Britain in waves from the third to ninth century (most heavily from 450-600) into Armorica ... hundred years, after Asterix and Obelix died  :'(

Deira is definitively of Brythonic origin. The names Deira or Derwent refer to a place with oaks (derv in modern Breton/Brezhoneg, plural dervenn - I think it's derw in Welsh/Cymraeg).

I will probably have finished the new settlers Saxon warband (Angles) by Sunday  :D

'Berniech' is the British form of Bernicia ,'Land of the Gaps' i.e. the river valleys of the Tyne, Wear and Tees, allowing East -West access across the country. The English settlements seemed to have moved that way in this area.

The Gododdin seem to have held sway over the lands in this region as far south as the Tees. One of their earlier heroes, Cunedda, 'ruled' in the area around what is now Chester-le-Street, before moving to North Wales with his sons to establish the Gwynedd dynasty (or so legend has it).

The Wall doesn't appear to have been a physical or political barrier to the post-Roman British.

See Charles-Edwards 'Wales and the Britons 350 -1064' OUP, 2013, for an up to date account.

Wonderful painting and a very interesting, and original project. Thanks for sharing!  :)

C. 470 Ebrauc could have been a proto-kingdom based on the old military district governed from York. It could have sub-divided into two successor kingdoms following the death of its first 'king'; primogeniture wasn't the British way of doing things apparently.

Charles-Edwards does actually mention this and other possibilities, as well as Rheged possibly being the same but based on the mysterious province of 'Valentinia'.

In any case the thread is about Armorica, so let's not drift from that huh?   :)
