Here are 24 "Welsh Spearmen" (set
number DA-21) in 25mm scale by Old Glory Miniatures.The bag comes with 30 figures in 5 poses
with head variants. I only painted 24 because the last six were a shirtless
pose that I didn't care for.Some of the heads have poor detail (or are a
completely undetailed flat smush) on one side of the face. I did my best to
just paint around these – they are in the minority and not too noticeable when ranked up.
The color scheme features a lot of red shirts.
This is because I found a reference  stating that Welsh "warriors were
dressed in a linen shirt (often red) and linen drawers; they covered these with
a woolen cloak hanging to their knees".This is probably referring to a later period than the dark ages, but
it's good enough for me!The same source
notes that "a circular shield was carried by the foot soldiers, decorated
white, yellow, silver, or blue."  I didn't like the idea of silver
shields, so I stuck to white, yellow, and blue.
The spears are styrene rod cut and carved by me to look spears. Some of the figures had poses where the hand is too close to the body and makes getting a spear in pace rather difficult.I would rather more of the poses had an overhand arm pose to hold the spear to give them more of a javelin-using skirmish look.As is they rank up rather like a phalanx.
The mounted warlord is by Gripping Beast. I
have managed to photograph him in just the right way that shows off the mistake
I made painting the mane that I keep neglecting to fix over and over
