My SAGA Vikings also needed some levies so I broke out the Wargames Factory Viking Bondi and Saxon Fyrd boxes and made some archers. These two boxes contain the same body and army sprues. The only difference is the head and weapon sprues. I build these using a mix of the Saxon and Viking heads. In this period there would be lots of overlap in styles. In the end I now have 12 nice generic Dark Age archers.
The Wargames Factory figures are a good value at about $22 for 32 figures. It is a little disappointing that you only get enough open left hands in the box to make 8 archers. I did try and convert one of the left shield arms for use with the bow but it did not work out too well and was a bit of a pain. Fortunately, I had a couple of boxes and was able to build the 12 I needed. I have a lot more of these figures to build and paint and they will be seeing time in my Saxon armies for Hail Caesar.
