Painted Norman infantry
I have just been painting Norman Conquest infantry and they illustrate a couple of dilemmas. Firstly, the unarmoured archers and spear men both have headgear which could either be pointed helmets or cloth hats - I'm not sure which. I have painted them as helmets but suspect this may be wrong - can anyone comment? Also very few of the spear men's weapons are complete, so I suspect I will replace these. This is the same problem as I have with the accompanying cavalry. I only have a few (less than ten) Saxons, so I think I will try to do these before tackling the Norman cavalry.
