SAGA

I have had a chanse to try out the new Dark Ages skirmish game SAGA. Here are a short AAR and some pictures...

We only had minis for two 3 point armys, but it worked out fine anyway. I commanded the Vikings and my friend Andy commanded the Anglo-Danish.

OOB Anglo-Danish Warband
1x Thegn warlord “Knut the Dane” with a Two handed axe
1x4 Huscarls with Two handed axes
1x4 Huscarls
1x12 Levys

OOB Viking Warband
1x Jarl ”Eirik the Viking”
1x4 Hird
1x4 Berserks
1x8 Bondi

Deplyment...

The Anglo-Danish huscarls with two handed axes charged the Viking hirdmen...and was killed to the last men...

Knut the Dane had to take care of business him self...

If you are a warloard it´s good to have some comrades around that can be sacrifice if the Warloard recives to many wonds...

Thanks to the supporting Hirdmen Eirik managed to deffeated Knut and won a costly victory, lose all his Hird, Bersearks and half the Bondis...

Was a nice game and I suppouse it will be even funniet then you learn to use all the Battleboard opptions in the right way.

  1. Game looked and sounded good and you don't need a massive amount of figures, would you recommend them?

  2. Wouls i recomend them... Not yet...I will have to order them first so I can read them and try them out some more, BUT based only on one game I think they got a realy good potential, so in the end I will probably recomend them;)
