Sanctus Germanus

Saint Germanus was the Bishop of Auxerre who visited Britannia in the 5th Century to combat an outbreak of Pelagian heresy. Whilst there he supposedly led the Britons to defeat a large Saxon and Pictish raid in what is sometimes referred to as the Alleluia Victory.

I have re based these lovely figures painted by Shaun Watson (Redzed) as a command stand for a projected Arthurian-era Romano-British force. I believe the minis  are Westwind, and the stand itself is half round, designed to be placed in front of a unit as an attached general in TtS! terms.

It would be fun to have a mini campaign with a fervent continental bishop wandering around Britain, suppressing heresy and battling foreign invaders.
