My first foray into historicals started with a Saxon Heptarchy force for WAB largely because I grew up living a couple of hundred yards from this:
Most of the figures came from Gripping Beast and shortly after I started collecting them they released their line of Picts so I got some of them too as they looked really nice minis. Then Warlord plastics came out and I filled my boots with Romans and Brittons because they were dead cheap in comparison. There are several Brigantian hill forts dotted around Sheffield, possibly as part of an effort to stop the Romans coming any farther North, so I did up a version of WL's Boudicca as the Brigantian queen Cartimandua. Apparently she was a bit of a Roman sell out so I had to swap the captured standard for a British looking one as it's not very polite to go pinching your supposed ally's stuff.
Other than that it's Royalists for ECW. The Earl of Northampton's regt. as I'm now living there, Woopert's wegiment because they're cool and Newcastle's whitecoats as he lived over at Bolsover Castle, again near Sheffield.
And then we come to the besterest of all! I have a bit of a pith helmet fetish after collecting a huge army of GW Praetorian Imperial Guard and watching Zulu, Zulu Dawn and the man who would be king too many times so when WL's AZW stuff came out it was a bit of a no brainer really
