Saga event at UK Pick N' Mix 2014

This last weekend saw the Annual Pick n' Mix Event held in the UK at the North West Gaming Centre, Stockport. Among various historical games was a small SAGA tournament.

I want to say a big thanks to the guys (and gal) that attended. It was a three round event using 6 point factions.

From my side of things, after setting up, I ran my Normans (so as not to duplicate the other factions - at least I am familiar with them).  Joe ran Spanish, Collette ran Scots (with Kenneth as boss!). James and Rob both ran Saxons and Christopher ran Danes.

'Battle at the Ford' winding down....

Model Review: Gripping Beast Viking Age Heroes

Once again I have to thank those lovely lads and lasses at Gripping Beast for sending my some of their fantastic SAGA Viking age Heroes for review.

These models really do help set the tone and look for your armies, even if you don't actually upgrade a Warlord to a Hero. Let's take a look at some of these fantastic sculpts...

Event: Pick and Mix Saga - Stockport UK - 13/12/2014

For anyone in the North West of England on Saturday 13th December....

The North West Gaming Centre, Stockport, is hosting the Annual "Pick and Mix" Event.

There will be a SAGA tournament that day, run by my good self.

Registration for SAGA is 9:30, Game 1 is 10am. Finish around 5:30

Game 1 = Clash of Warlords.
Game 2 = Battle at the Ford (unless both players agree to play another mission)
Game 3 = Sacred Ground (unless both players agree to play another mission).

Three rounds of 2 hours each with breaks. there will be other events for you to watch in any downtime.

Cost of the event is 10 pounds payable on the day in cash to the Event Organiser, James "Hammy" Hamilton. Drinks are available at the venue. Your entry fee is for the event only. There may be food at the venue but local shops and pubs are at hand. The NWGC is also home to the Element Games store so you can check that out too!

You need to bring a 6 point Saga army (not Skraelings), rules for your faction, Battleboard, Saga dice and tape measure. It is a fairly light Christmas event  with other games going on over the weekend.

Scenery, rules, FAQ, scenario information are all provided. Bring yourself and have fun.

The rules will be the (very minor) updated ones for Crescent and Cross, but are basically the same as Dark Age Saga. Feel free to bring a C and C army!

If you are thinking of coming please let me know ASAP so I can sort out tables. You can go to the WWPD.net forum and send a PM to "ambler".

Interested in other games at the event... see this link and contact the overall Event Organiser.

The Mutatawwi'a Battleboard

One of the new factions in the "Crescent & the Cross" Saga expansion are the Mutatawwi'a.
This army of fanatics can field camels and use Martyr's in an attempt to defeat their enemies.

So, what abilities can this faction take to help them. Lets take a look....

AAR : Byzantines v Mutatawwi'a in Champions of God

I played another game of Saga versus the Byzantines recently using my new C&C Mutatawwi'a faction.

It was good to have painted something lighter and brighter for a change, but how would this new faction fare against the Byzantine finest?... Find out....

Mutatawwi'a Command- not quite finished yet but looking colourful!

Camels in the Crescent and the Cross

For those new to the era of Saga "The Crescent & the Cross" one of the most obvious differences must be the introduction of the humble Camel as a cavalry unit.

Up to now, the cavalry forces in Dark Age Saga have been able to rule the roost with their rapid movements.

Is it a case of 'move over' horse, make way for the camel?

Lets take a look at this humble beast as a unit in Saga....
