Hi to you all, i am in the process of building an Early Saxon 2k Army for AoA and was wondering about unit sizes and configuration of the units.
I plan to use the Early Anglo Saxon list to make use of the buckler re roll rule (anyone who saw me play in the recent HYW at WHW can testify that i roll a hell of a lot of 1's when rolling to hit!!!!
So i am going to be all light infantry. My first thoughts were units of 24 for Gedriht and Duguth in 3 ranks of 8 but i feel this could be a little wide, might struggle to get through gaps, use a lot of move when wheeling etc.
So now i am thinking along the lines of 24 figures, 3 ranks of 7 and 3 spare at the back for casualty removals or lapping around.............................ok probably casualty removals!!!
I would be interested to hear from other Early Saxon players, how they configure their units.
Looking for a UK based Pro Painter, please pm me.
