Saxons for Dux Bellorum

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!
