15mm West Frankish or Normans Figures AVAILABLE NOW!


By the end of 800 the Vikings had ravaged northern France to such an extent that there was little plunder left. In the course of the next century their raiding encampments gradually evolved into permanent settlements along the Atlantic coast. These early Viking contingents included Danes, Norwegians, Hiberno-Norse, Orkney Vikings, as well as Anglo-Danes from the English Danelaw. They settled the territory and quickly merged with the native population of mostly Frankish and Gallo-Roman stock. In 911 a Danish Viking Army under a leader called Hrolf arrived to pillage the lower Seine Valley; his army was such a threat that Charles, King of the Franks, negotiated a treaty at St. Clair-sur-Epte. Under this treaty all the land bounded by the rivers Brestle, Epte, Avre and Dives was granted to the Danes; effectively the land they already controlled anyway.
By 924 the Franks were forced to grant the Danes the districts of Bayeux, Exmes and Sees, and in 933 also the Cotenin and Avranchin.
Hrolf was baptised in 912 and became known as Rollo. Within two generations he and his followers had adopted the Franks' language, religion, laws, customs, political organisation and methods of warfare. They had become Franks in all but name, for they were now known as Normans, men of Normandy: the land of the Northmen.

This range has been sculpted by M. Campagna and with a generous 15 different poses of horsemen currently cover all core troops.
We plan to expand it even further very soon with the addition of new packs, including dismounted milites, crossbowmen and everything needed for the first Crusade and the conquest of southern Italy!

Separate horses are provided at random out of a dozen different poses to maximize variation!

Code: BRT1
15mm Breton Cavalry

The "Armorican" peninsula came to be settled with Britons from Britain during the poorly documented period of the 5th-7th centuries. When Vikings or Northmen settled in the area in the ninth and early tenth centuries these regions came to be known as Normandy and the name Armorica fell out of use. Western Armorica eventually evolved into Brittany, while the east became the Breton March under a Frankish marquis. The native Armoric Breton were skilled horsemen and their standard weapon was the javelin, which they continued to use well after neighbouring Nortmans and French took to charging with the lance.

15mm Norman Archers

The Bayuex Tapestry illustrates many archers in battle, their role made peraphs most famous by the commonly held opinion that Harold was killed by an arrow through the eye.

Code: GSC1
15mm Basque or Gascon javelinmen

both the words "Basque" and "Gascon" derive from "Vascones", the name of an ancient people who, at the arrival of the Romans, had already been inhabiting for several thousand years the region of present day Navarre and north-western Aragon. They kept their independence for centuries and resisted early Frankish attempts to subdue them but were eventually defeated by Charlemagne. Extremely determined fighters well versed in skirmishing they fight as a very reliable light infantry.

As soon as William the Conqueror arrived in England in 1066 he started building castles. At Pevensey, where he first landed, an existing but run-down fortification built by the Romans was quickly strengthened to provide a secure first base using a brought-over prefabricated wooden castle from Normandy. This is a fully assembled, based and painted historically accurate model of exactly such a Norman fortification!
The full size is 120x80mm and there is enough space inside and on the battlements to hold troops.
It is made using a FOG1 kit with the addition of custom reinforced corner posts, available separately.

Code: FOG1
15mm Norman Fortified Camp



This is a fortified camp sets based on our "HOPPIDUS" modular system for ancient fortifications and designed specifically to be suitable for FOG or DBMM. The set contains a selection of modules that let you create a 120x80mm Norman Fortified Camp. As such it is also perfect for any Dark Age fort including Late Imperial Roman fortification, such as a Saxon Shore or a Limes semi-permanent fort! The complete set consist of a base formed by two sections of embankment, (each with its own timber stockade) which leave a full module frontage (40mm) gap, and a wooden barred gate of the same frontage to close the gap itself. On this base rest a separate wooden superstructure to defend the gate, which include a pontoon, a frontal parapet and two side support structures with access ladders nailed on.
This set include all the modules required to make a camp large enough to hold several elements of troops either on the pontoon or on the walkway and in the courtyard there is plenty of space even for baggage or artillery.
It includes 16 parts and assembly instructions; painting examples are available on this page, just click the small thumbnails on the top right. Please note that the kit does not contain enough elements to make a completely enclosed circuit and does not include an MDF base like that shown in the picture! We suggest to use one as it add strength to the model, but it is optional really, the model will stand up by itself and does not require basing.

To make an enclosed fortified perimeter that can be used for a scenario game or even as a Build Up Area you can also add more elements from the complete HOPPIDUS range to expand and customize this basic set, for example adding a HOP4 - modular Late Imperial Roman Fortification set or using two FOG1 back to back.
Just remember you can pick and choose any combination of modules you like, and we're here to help you at any time, so just e-mail us for any special requirements!
