Well, I can't say that I know a lot about the 9th century Welsh either, but correct me if I'm wrong, we don't really have much of an idea what they looked like anyway? It involves some guess work. Surely after the influence the Romans had, the Romanesque arms and armour would still be seen amongst the most wealthy in the society. While the more common would wear the typical tunics and leather armours of the time and Anglo Saxon styles such as the round shields and more practical helmets would become increasingly more common.

500 years after the Romans' departure, I don't think roman weaponry would be much seen. Some weaponry could have a roman ancestry, yes, such as the Anglo-saxon ridge helmets (Coppergate, Wollaston) had. Penannular broochs were also of a far roman ancestry but there is a huge difference in style between a simple roman penannular brooch and an 8th century Irish one.
Irish had a long-time influence in Wales. Anglo-saxon were more and more influents, and of course the Norse had a huge impact on weaponry and fighting styles in the whole British isles by that time. I think it would be wise if you have lot of anglo-saxon or norse weaponry (especially swords and helmets) equipping Welsh elite.

For some more 'regional' stuff you can go for (and I may be wrong):
- perhaps still exiting, basic ridge helmets with or without cheekguards
- smaller round shields, eventually leathercovered that would equip lot of the troops
- 'roman derived armor', simply mail or scale armor with specific shape including some pteruges (leather bands) from the padded garnment worn underneath. Not sure if this was still around but it often appears in carolingian art althought often dissmissed by scholars as artistical convention.

The Welsh could fashion longer tunics, and some could go barelegged in the Irish fashion.

Definetly  looking forward to this.
Hehe, just having a silly idea: how about making plunderable monasteries? A couple of monks will automatically attack you with quarterstaffs etc., and well, you can slaughter them. Just for pagan Vikings anyway, if you do it as a christian, you will be in big trouble with all christian factions (relation minus).

Another silly idea: slaves as trade goods. You mostly get them by plundering villages (should be the most valuable things one gets out of a shabby village).

Edit: Unfortunately, there is no "ignore knitpickers" button.

There is a button called MODIFY, you know?
"I don't understand this game. Why every character is blond, blue eyed and speaking Swedish?"
"Erm... This is Nordic Limited Edition."

Here's a couple of the shields I've been working on. There still wips and have some glitches at the moment.
