ZIP File


The Saxons (and related tribes) invaded Britain in the 5th century AD and within a hundred years ruled myriad rival kingdoms. They ruled all of what is now England until the 10th century, when they were finally overwhelmed by the Vikings. Whether your game is set in the early dark ages, when the Saxons pillaged the celtic tribes of Britain, or the late dark ages, when they themselves were under attack, or even the early middle ages when the Saxons had been conquered by the Normans, this set of 19 paper miniatures is for you. The 28mm scale full colour miniatures are supplied in two formats and can be assembled as flat, A-frame or triagonal miniatures depending on personal choice (full assembly instructions included). The images are all high-quality computer generated figures and bring an extra level of realism to the gaming table.

In this set:

2x Saxon Thegns
3x Saxon Fyrdsmen
3x Saxon Huscarls
2x Saxon Peasants (Male and female)

I thought the images were good, but when printed, I felt they lost much of their detail due to the small size. Also the coloring was a bit dark as well which contributed to the loss (though this could have been a printer issue). [...]

Superb-looking miniatures, with quite a selection supplied (e.g. a noblewoman and peasants to add to the expected fighting figures). Historically-accurate to the best of my knowledge. I'll definitely be getting more of these sets. [...]

Picked up this set and the companion Normans set to try out a new set of miniature rules. They were a great buy and with the quality of the artwork, I may never get around to painting actual minis for the rules. The set had a nice selection of charac [...]

Just what I've been waiting for. The Saxon period of English history is one that is of great interest to me, and I'm glad to find affordable miniatures that I can use for games set in this era. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
