What I have been doing is listening to more of the Saxon Stories by Bernard Cornwell. Once I strip out his hatred of all things Christian, its a fun book series. This has prompted me to reevaluate my Dux Britannarium forces. I really only have the basic troops. I don't really have enough to expand those forces in a campaign. I guess the sensible thing would be to remind myself that I have never played more than 2 games in a campaign yet so why worry about it. But I am not feeling sensible. I have cast my covetous eyes on Khurasan's Late German figures. I am thinking of getting a pack of their Follower Cavalry for the Saxon Light Cavalry reinforcements and a pack of their Western Infantry. They would provide a nice contrast to my Splintered Light figures to differentiate them as later followers.
I also started to think about how these would be represented in a campaign. The basic starting Saxon Force is about 34 troops and four leaders including the champion. That works out to about one ship's crew. Now the Dux B campaign system assumes a larger ratio in that you are a budding warlord about to take over province. 34 guys are not really much of a force at 1 to 1. Unless you consider them as smaller pieces to a larger campaign. Your noble starts out with a single ship's crew and attempts to build a larger force as he gains reputation.
Anyway, that is what was running through my head while sitting in the hospital the past week.
