I started off figure gaming with an anglo danish army, inspired by MacBeth and the army and chose to do Siward Earl of Northumbria and his army of 1054. However I was then led into the history of Deira and Bernicia. this is the earlier army of Bernicia a kingdom in it's time stretching into lowland Scotland. co incidentally the heraldic colours associated with Bernicia match those of Motherwell FC. hopefully they will soon be fighting!
