    I'll probably grubby them up a bit once I have done the whole unit, so that it helps to unify them a bit.

    Re: D.C.147's Danelaw Saga.

    Well I received my copy of Crescent and Cross earlier today and I’m thoroughly impressed by it. The paper quality is good and it’s even better that it’s a hardback. Rules-wise they have taken all the core rules from the Dark Age book and its supplements and rolled them up into one neat package (However you will still need these books for the Dark Age warbands rules as they are not included) . They are also clearer and more concise. They have added a few extra rules too, particularly for mounted models. There are a number of new scenarios, some of which are variations of previous ones.

    As for warbands you have six new choices; Crusaders, Saracens, Milites Christi, Mutatawwi’a, Spanish, and the Moors. I’ve not properly read the individual entries so I can’t really review them yet. There are also Dogs of War that can be hired. My favourite addition however is the Priest. There are three variants each with their own talents. If you want, you can “upgrade” your priest to act as your warlord. The priests can also be used by the Dark Age warbands, which means my Vikings will be getting either a Skald or Goši at some point in the none too distant future

    The great thing about this supplement is I already have a Andalusian army I can make a couple of Moorish forces out of. They can fight amongst themselves until I have put together a Spanish warband.

    I've become more and more curious about this here saga business, one thing I've noticed is leaders are on 40mm bases? How does this effect gameplay. Nice models, nice to see Saxons, people usually rave about vikings.

    The larger bases don't really alter gameplay, not that I've noticed anyway. You can use the usual 25mm upto 50mm I believe. Most people use the larger bases to mark out their leaders and make small dioramas (banner bearers, pets etc).

    And thanks, I'm glad you like the Saxons. I'm quite pleased how they are turning out and I can't wait to get stuck into my Vikings.

    Sorry I didn't reply sooner.

    So historically is where you have been hiding out?!

    Great stuff as always here. Always been tempted by historical figures - I reckon if I gamed it's what I'd be playing. How do you find the sculpt/cast quality of the gaming ranges?

    Cheers,

    Thanks I've only played Saga so far and I'm happy with the range. The plastics have a good amount of detail for tabletop gaming. The metal range is also very nice.

    I've taken a look at Perry Miniatures for potential crusade era forces. Their stuff is up to the usual Perry brothers standard.

    If you fancy something in the ancient period I would recommend Agema and their Romans and upcoming Carthaginians. The sculpts are some of the best proportioned ones that I've seen thus far.

    Really the quality varies greatly. I've seen some diabolical sculpts but most are good clean sculpts. I just found a period I was interested in and hit Google to look for models. Plenty of manufacturers will pop up. I would recommend asking Codsticker as he is far more experienced with historical gaming.

    I might have asked already, and maybe you already said something about it, so forgive me being an old man, but: will you do some scenery too? There are a few manufacturers for fitting terrain I know of, and it also should be easily be done from scratch if funds are short. Terrain, man!

    I possibly said something about terrain, but I can't remember either I have a small village from 4Ground made up. They will need basing. There is a whole new 4ft x 4ft gaming table on the schedule, with a modular set up, fancy new trees and what have you. I'm roping in my friend to do all the heavy work (which is only fair as I'm painting his Saxons ). I'm open to suggestions though, terrain-wise

    Yeah, the 4Ground stuff is what I had in mind, they do some excellent buildings. Not exactly cheap though.

    As for other terrain... the usual suspects I guess. As the game seems to be very skirmishy, you want lots of scatter terrain, and a collection of things that can be arranged in many different ways on the table. For example: I'd suggest at leadt half a dozen sets of three trees on one base, plus another dozen of single trees - that way you have a plethora of option from "big, dense forest" to "multiple small groups of trees". Same for hills: you want some bigger ones, plus some smaller ones, so that you can stack some of them for larger hills, or use them on their own for multiple obstacles. Add some small lakes and the village you already have, and I guess you have enough for a start.

    Nice men, I like the shield designs and the green stuff work is goood.

    So is Saxon a skirmish game? Or regiments?

    Thanks sir

    Saga is a larger scale skirmish game. Mine and my mates 4pt warbands consist of 25 models each. When selecting your warband you get a basic warlord for free. After that you choose your troops (usually between four and six points worth). Each choice costs one point, but the unit size, attacks and armour are changed by the quality of troops chosen. For one point you get either four hearthguard, eight warriors, or twelve levies. There are a series of vids on YouTube detailing the basics about Saga dice, fatigue tokens and the measurement system. I would recommend it as its a quick and simple system to learn and use, and games can be very fast paced.

    Is it my computer screen or is the skin on your men a little pale (almost blue?)

    Otherwise very neat painting.

    They are on the pasty side but not actually blue-ish My phone camera seems to make everything a touch blue. It's a right pain.
