Reviews....Scenery and SAGA

Hey folks, i have made two quick reviews. The first i look at the supplement for the Viking Age for SAGA.

  Secondly, is a review for some great plastic scenery from Warlord Games (tabletop workshop). I stumbled across them while looking at warlords new castle and they caught my interest. Especially the fact they also had internal detail. So i picked one up. I was so impressed i brought some others and thought i'd share my thought on these fantastically well thought out pieces. You can find them here.

 I have also got round to finishing of my Frostgrave warband. With the last few painted, my starting warband is complete.

 And finally got to havea go at Gaslands from Osprey games, and it was great fun. A very well thought out system, that you can have some fun with. Below is some images of my van.

Till next time, dha weles!

Some more SAGA v2

Hey folks, here is another SAGA battle report. I thought i'd try the Anglo-Saxons, to see what they're like at 4pts.

  Still clearing miniatures off my paint table, here's two more for Frostgrave.

Whats been painted...

Quick update on things i'm painting. Currently i have been working on my LoTR and getting into painting some more bits for Frostgrave.

Eowyn from GW's Lord of the Rings SBG

Here i have painted up Eowyn, though unarmoured she does provide a useful cheap to the force.

While getting back into Frostgrave i decided to paint up some wizards for another warband

First new SAGA batrep...

  Well, hey folks. Its been a while, but I have a new report. Yes I have finally posted a SAGA version 2 report. Its a bit longer than usual as I discuss some of the changes as they pop into my head, which, as you can imagine, is at random points!

  So what else have I been up to? Well, I have been trying to organise some fun events at the club. I mean its open for 12hrs so there's no excuse for some big games. So to start with on May 27th, I will be running a friendly SAGA tournament. Just a small one so old and new players can learn some of the new rules. It will be a 4pt event, which include some random doubles thrown in.

This will be a good test to see how the new rules stack up, as we should have a mix of forces. Also it will be good to see if the game stays balanced at 4pts too. I was going to take my newly painted Cornish/Welsh warband but... other players are taking the Welsh, so for the sake of testing the new rules limits I will probably take a stand in (Rohan) Anglo-Saxon army, as they really struggled in the previous version at the smaller points. But with Levy troops now able to generate SAGA dice, just maybe an all Levy force could work!

  Finally we getting some more Lord of the Rings gaming in. It is such a good system I do enjoy playing it. On July 1st will be playing an epic “Castle Duel”, these games are for fun and to get a lot of models down on the table. Oh, and of course, to be able to get some siege action going.

  Sieges are always difficult to do and the LotR system seems to make a fun and tough game of it. Below is the proposed set up. As you can see, as well as the castles there are three village. Each team has one village and half (their riverside half), of the centre village. The ownership of towns allow re-enforcements to be gained every 6 turns.

  The river is not impassable, but does have an additional -1 to swim tests due to its fast flowing nature.

  As you can imagine the battle is a fight for territory to begin with and when one side gets the upper-hand, it becomes siege. Fun and brutal.

Well thats it for know, write soon.

Dha weles!
