Every once in a while you come across something that you don’t see every day as a collector. A few weeks ago, I found this set and was lucky enough to get it for about $40. This is a rare set, a Collectors Club set. Plus Conte didn’t make to many metal painted Saxon sets. Anyway they go great with my W. Britain Saxons, and now my Shield Wall is bigger 🙂
Well it looks like 2017 will be the a good year for Saxon Medieval collectors, first Britain and now Pvblivs has released something new. You get a set of 6 Saxon figures in some nice action poses. I like the different type of Saxon headgear, some nice helmets and a classic Saxon hat. Plus the different shields and at last a nice looking Seax. The Saxons were famous for fighting with the Seax, a long knife. One figure is fighting with this knife and at least one other figure has the Seax in it’s sheath. My Pvblivs Vikings were starting to feel lonely, glad they released these 6 new figures. You can find them on ebay from a couple of different sellers for about $50.00. These figures are 1/32 in scale. I will take some pictures when I get them to show how the look with other figures. I also finally found a Conte Saxon metal painted set. Looks like 2017 will be a Saxon year.
Well I hope everybody is doing well so far for 2017. I have been under the weather for most of it, but am feeling better now. I just got my 2016 Winter Catalog from W. Britain, plus the 2016 Winter Collectors Club magazine(The Standard). They used one of my pictures for an article is this issue of the Standard. It was from the East Coast Toy Soldier show, that I did an article on and took some pictures. Looking for to the next show later in October. I am also looking forward to getting some of the new exclusive figures of 2017, especially 50073C Acwellen the Saxon Warlord. So if you interested in joining the club and seeing the other exclusive figures follow the link here W. Britain Collectors Club.
