I'll second that - the thought you're putting into this is commendable.

Clearly this is going to be great  8) :-*

I've just been painting a whole lot of the very same figures myself, with the new Saga supplement in mind... they'll be appearing in rounds 7, 8 and 9 of the current Lead Painters League.

But I love the thought and detailing that's going into your collection :)

I need to sort out some levies for my Arthurians... that's the only outstanding item on my list, so I'll be watching yours take shape with keen interest  :)

This project looks like it will be great.  What Saga force did you have at adepticon this year?

This looks awesome. That is some brilliant conversions. Can't wait to see them with some paint.

I've played a few games with my Britons and I'm beginning to wonder if I should add some 'shooting' to my list.  The Sea Wolves' Marauders ability gives me a nice advantage in scenarios where the objective is to be somewhere or capture something, but Guides, Deserters, or Briton Levies will give me shooting attacks to degrade certain types of units that I'd rather not tackle in melee, such as Beserkers, Attecotti, or mounted Hearthguard.  Also, shooting attacks can be used to encourage a reluctant opponent to close with me. 

Hmm?  More play testing required. 


Also, my first test-model is ready for painting.

You mentioned crows in an earlier post. Ask Nic at Eureka Miniatures - he has a set of four crows in metal which are really nice. They aren't on the website but drop him an email.

Respect ! It's a beautiful project. I will follow it with interest.
Irish are a really good faction in SAGA, hard to play but hard to beat.

Thanks, everyone.

I didn't make much progress on my Britons this weekend.  I spent most of my hobby time assembling some Vikings for use in demo games. 

I did get my Cymry Guides (Footsore Miniatures' Scots), assembled and mounted on bases. So they aren't confused with Picts, I equipped them with the bucklers that came with my FS Early Saxons. Because these fellows operate best in uneven terrain, I used the extra white-stuff to sculpt some logs and stumps for their bases.
