Uthred book

Just a recommendation to members here that the Uthred book is really good.
Focusses on the reign of :-


937 AD
A combined invasion of Vikings, Welsh and Scots is crushed by Aethelstan at Brunanburh (no one knows where this was).



marvellous

What, there's a big battle and "foreign" people get killed, with Englaland and the Sais triumphant?

That's a shocker, I'll probably not bother reading the rest of the book then...

Simon  ;D

Wouldn't it be wonderful if someone had produced a set of figures and a suitably elegant ruleset for this intriguing period of history...?  ;)

That man would be genius Simon.

Some chap on TMP was extolling a new range of Western figures for 2020. His praise was that they were the first company ever to do the same figure mounted and on foot.  Gosh, great idea.

Even better to do a casualty of that same figure too? That really would be novel...  ::)
