Currently putting together my first box of GP Hirdmen. I can see the complaints people have with the poses, but am otherwise a big fan so far.
Although having said that perhaps my expectations are a little low, I also didn't mind the Warlord Games Saxons thegns, and they seem to have come in for a lot of criticism. With a bit of work they came up fine for me at least
Seriously hanging out for the conquest Normans though. Have been checking their website daily for months!
If I am allowed to dream, would love a box of GP plastic Byzantines, particularly since they are adding them to Saga, or so the rumour goes.....
