Another unit off the table, a unit if Sagittarii, suitable for my late Romans or   Kingdom of Soissons and Bretons. Working on  lots more, a number will be coming for the next few days.



Cheers

Liticiani-Letavi -Letavii-Letaniae, much conjecture surrounds them as to where they were located during the dark ages. Mentioned in a number ancient references with the field army of Aetius by Gregory of Tours. Mentioned by Jordannes at Challons with the Roman army of Gaul against the Huns and with Paulus and Riothamus defending Angers against the Goths,  some suggest they were a german tribe or perhaps even a welsh tribe.

Personally  I follow the thought train that a Celtic Godess is named Letavia and the mentions on name of a Latin  region in the Armorican peninsular in a large number of documents refers to the southern region of modern Pays de Loire as Letavi and the recent archeological find at Clisson near Nantes pointed toward a inscription on a partial tile of a military unit building with Let (waiting for the full report though, before fully drawing my bow) .

Looking at all of this I have settled that were either Auxilla or old veterans in Armorican peninsular, around Nantes and Angers defending the Breton Marshe under command of Riothamus.

Figures are 28mm Footsore miniatures, I have elected to depict the unit of skirmishers in pure white bleached tunics and shields, and for the following heavy infantry I will do the same. The current pandemic has allowed me to complete another two units which I will roll out over the next few days.

Thank you Nikko, not far from completion, 4 bases to go and my Bretons will be complete for the early part of the dark ages, then onto the rest of my Maine Army and then some additions to my Normans.

All the best

Cheers
Matt
