Hi Engin,

Thanks for the review. This figure will make for a nice vignette with the Anglo Saxon Cheiftain you reviewed yesterday.

Cheers

A very good review of a very nice looking figure. However, Byrne is actually an Irish surname; byrnie is a waistlength mail shirt. This figure is wearing a haubergeon which is a mail shirt that reaches mid-thigh.

Hi Gary,
I used Osprey Anglo-Saxon Thegn AD 449–1066 book when doing this review and it must be my error when reading the word and spelled it wrong or it can be an error on the book.i am not sure which one but I think haurbergeon is a better one for that and I have to agree with you having the BRYNE surname I edited the review and thanks for help
