SAGA? Maybe, I don´t know!!

I´m thinking about SAGA but I would like to see how many Vikings I can paint before I get bored :(. I have painted this one, a Foundry Viking.

Superb painting. Saga is a lot of fun and the Vikings are my favorite faction to play.

Realy good looking !!!

SAGA are a greate game and you only need 25 minis to get a elit 6 point Viking force;)

Best regards Michael

Thank you!!

I haven’t got the rules but I have several Foundry Vikings so I’ll keep painting them and see where it takes me. I thought about mixing them with some Crusader miniatures (do you know how they match together? because they were sculpted by the same person).

I have seen that people are painting their band in groups of four or eight miniatures, so I have to prepare another three two-handed axe warriors.

Regards.

If you like skirmish games then go for it!
As usual superb standards on the painting!

Thanks!!

Axebreaker: "If you like skirmish games then go for it!" I love skirmish games and big battles games but like other people I have realized that I’ll never have a big painted army :(. So I’m collecting skirmish games rules and seeing my "real strength" when I paint for myself.

Endakil: Thanks and welcome!! Gracias y bienvenido!!

Ray Rousell: Thanks but I wouldn’t call a bearded man with an axe a beauty!! ;) hahaha

Cheers.

Thank Jehan. Your army is very well painted, maybe I made a Scot warband too.

Hi Einar

About force composition in SAGA...

You usuly play with 6 point warbands, but most people start up with a 4 point,

The Warlord you get for free:)
Then you purchase your minis in groups for 1point each.

4 Heatguard or 8 Warriors or 12 Levys.

I dosent realy matter what weapon they have, BUT it is only the Viking levy that can have Bows. And then special for the Vikings are that they can turn 4 Heatguards in to berserkers (no more on less)

Hope its a start untill you get the rules.

Thanks for your help Michael.

I have seen a lot of interesting things about SAGA (I have been lurking several blog talking about it). Jehan´s blog has a good number of nicely painted Scots too, and Endakil too. Then I saw some Vikings on my desk, and then I have a new game!!

Cheers.
