Old Glory Franks

Filed under: Ancients, Dark Ages, Old Glory Miniatures — gisby @ 11:48

A while ago, I saw an auction on eBay, someone was auctioning off a couple of packs of Old Glory Franks. (or Old Glory for more pictures) He had some very good pictures of the miniatures (far better than either Old Glory site has) and they were pretty darn nice. So I ordered a couple of sets.

They have two Frankish sets, PLF-01 Infantry with axes, and PLF-02 Infantry with angon – both include command figures. All are dressed in tunics and trousers, some with cloaks or fur vests. Their hair is in various styles of Suebian knot.

The sets come with a mix of large, Viking-style shields, and smaller (they call them Gothic) shields. I specifically asked them to supply the smaller shields.

The Gallic Wars range also has a number of packs of Early Germans, most of which will work as earlier (or wilder) Franks, if you order them with the ‘Gothic’ shields. Have a look at CWG-31 Germans with One Handed Axes. (I did not use any here)

I replaced all the spears with wire spears, and mixed the two packs for variety.

I was four figures short for the units, so each has two figures from PAA-02 Romano-British Infantry, which match well in size and style.
