Character research: Saxon Warriors

I started off the process looking at Saxon warriors. Inspired by some little metal figures I collected when I was younger, I realised they wore fairly primitive clothes and had some interesting simple props that could all be made fairly easily for stop motion.

Further research showed that they could also be quite colourful with stripes on their shields and vibrant robes under their chain mail.

Although my sources may not be entirely historically accurate, they showcase the basis of a visually interesting character.
