double edged sword when your woman says you should do something you enjoy, could backfire. ha ha.
So...I am sort of on the fence about it, and have yet to decide which army I would do if I go for it. But I look forward to following along as people W.I.P.
If you're willing to consider non-GW models, have a look at Gripping Beast's and Wargames Factory's Anglo-Saxon and Viking ranges. They both do good quality but cheap plastic kits and Gripping Beast has some good metals at a great price (4 for £5 is typical). The casting quality obviously isn't as good as GW's (or rather, as good as GW's metals) but you get what you pay for and I'm absolutely happy with the metals I have.
Large infantry based forces for Rohan and Dunland would be very easy and cheap to make using the plastic kits, and you could even do a Rohan cavalry force if you're happy to get lots of metals (and in comparison to GW's metals/Finecast it wouldn't cost an arm and a leg).
