Romano-British Teulu

The Teulu were the bodyguards of the Romano-British warlords. Teulu means "family" in Welsh, and that was mostly what they were, but they could be friends, allies or clientes also. Anyway they were really similar to the Macedonian Companions.
In this picture you can see a couple of members of Arthur's Teulu: the brothers Gwalchmai and Gwalchafed. Known as Sir Gawain and Sir Gaheris thanks to medieval literature. They were sons of Lot Luwddoc of Gododdin and Elain, and nephews of Arthur.

Romano-British Rherel

Spear was the most poular weapon in Britania due to its simple design and its low cost. But some individuals were wealthy enough to affort the queen of the weapons: the sword. Rherel went even beyond and they could affort helmets and chainmails.
Rherel were part of the nobles' personal guard, or even they were petty local nobles. Anyway their excellent equipment made them great hand to hand contenders.

All of them are carrying coptic tunics, but maybe it's hard to appreciate in the pictures. More freehands for the shields.

Romano-British Aulue

The Aulue were a militia unit in the British Kingdoms. They should be able to provide their own equipment and follow the local lord to the battleflield. They are equipped with spear and shield, some may have got a helm if they were lucky, but body armor would be rare.
They were also known as Pedyt, from the Latin name Peditatus (Pedites) of which they are clearly inspired, subsisting as a kind of successor unit in Br

Some of them carry shields with emblems of British units according to Notitia Dignitatum (Legio Praesidensis and Secunda Britannica), other shields show versions of other units emblems and early christian symbols (Chi-Rhos)
You can also see a few Coptic tunics.

Saxon shield patterns

Some of the saxon shields I have painted so far.
My original idea was to use decals, but I've finally painted them using freehand.
