Third Time Lucky for my Blood Eagle Anglo-Saxons!

 Okay, first off, my apologies for giving you the distinct feeling you've been here before.  let me explain. I put together a list of Anglo Saxons for use in our upcoming games of Blood Eagle.  I posted it on my blog and in G+ and the Blood Eagle Group over on Facebook.  I was interested in the thoughts of fellow gamers.  The response was wonderfully helpful, as it made me realise how slow my army was.  I therefore took on board all the advice, and came up with my second edition.  Which I also posted.  It got a lot of likes and no suggestions to alter what I had done.  This was even more satisfying because in a little over 30 years, it's probably the only force I've ever drafted that has been the exact points required.
But there was a problem.  Not a big one, but a serious one.  It didn't match the figures I owned for the game.  In all my excitement to put together a list, I had not tailored everything to the miniatures I had. So as a result my priest for example had no armour, whereas the model I am using from Gripping Beast wears a mail hauberk.  And that's before I even mention the great big standard he's holding in his left hand.  Honestly, what was I thinking!

Of course, when I added these to the list, I went right over my 300 points limit. So, with a bit of further faffing, I present my (hopefully) finished list.  Does it make 300 point exactly?  What do you think...!
