Anglo-Danes and Vikings for Saga
« on: March 29, 2018, 02:28:41 PM »
Finally, with only a few Berserkers to paint, I managed to finish the core force of my Anglo-Danes (or Anglo-Saxons, as they will double as such!) and Vikings, for Saga. Mostly they are Wargames Foundry (Vikings), Crusader, Gripping Beast, Footsore with a few from Artizan Miniatures.

Today, my son and I will have our first game with V2. We will play the Clash of Warlords scenario. I will try to take some pictures.

Well, here it is my Anglo-Dane warlord. The miniature is from Gripping Beast and it represents Harold Godwinson. It comes with other two figures, representing Harold's brothers, but I haven't painted them yet (I was in a hurry to have a warlord ready for today's game!)

Thanks guys! Yesterday, he had his first Saga v2 game. It was an Anglo-Dane vs Vikings game. Miguel, -my eldest son, 22 y.o- commanded the Anglo-Danes, while I took command of the Vikings. We used Clash of Warlords scenario (Miguel won, by the way... the Anglo-Dane battleboard makes them very survivable!)

I've tried to upload the photos from my phone, but it is a slow process!

Anyway here there is the Viking warlord. Figures are Wargames Foundry (the flag did it myself: first I printed the crow drawing in a piece of paper, and then proceeded to paint it)

Saxon warriors ready to kick some Viking ass!



Figures are a mix of Saxon Miniatures (now Warlord Miniatures) and Crusader Miniatures

By the way, this is how the battlefield looked like before the battle was joined (Cigar Box battle mat, 4Ground buildings and GW hedges)
