Though the models are a Saxon Warband, they are all painted to be a uniformed town garrison, or similar such guard. The over-tunics are a solid mid-grey, highlighted on seams and edges, while the under-tunics are a flat byzantium red/violet (Vallejo Burnt Red) which makes for a great contrast.
The shields are red leather, washed with a light brown ink to give a solid hardened leather look. It also makes a nice canvass to put an emblem or transfer on if needed.
Breakdown of models is as follows -
16x Spearmen, 4x Chainmail Spearmen, 4x Chainmail Great-axes, 1x Warlord with 1x Standard.
The standard bearer has an extended spear, and replaces a normal shield with a smaller buckler. The standard is thick paper, painted and highlighted in the unit colours, edged with gold. There is also space enough to add an emblem or markings in the centre of the banners.
