Terrain for Saga

This article isn't going to be a tutorial on making terrain. There are plenty of those around on various sites!

I wanted to take the opportunity to show what other people have done to make terrain suitable for Saga and to also show you what is available for purchase that looks good and may not break the bank.

Anglo-Saxon Abilities

-- by Mike.

Anglo-Saxons seem to be a popular choice of factions for Saga. Why? Well, the colourful outfits and plenty of Warriors or Levies on the battlefield could be one answer.

Another answer could be the interesting battleboard mechanic this faction has.

Let's take a look at what the Anglo-Saxons can do and what makes them unique in the Saga wargame.

AAR : Vikings v Irish in Champions of God

This weekend I managed to get a quick game of SAGA in and took plenty of pictures too!

I recently finished an Irish Wolfhound Warrior unit and a couple of champions and wanted to use them in a battle. Who better to fight than the Vikings. Good times about to roll? I hope so!

This was a 6 point Vikings versus Irish battle using mutually agreed terrain on a standard 3 x 4 foot table.

Here's the battle report, using images as the guide...

2014 recap and 2015 welcome...

I haven't really done an editorial before for the sagatapestry website but I thought the crossroads of 2014/2015 made the ideal time to put finger to keyboard.

2014 saw big things happening for the SAGA wargame. Fans of Saga finally got to see and own copies of the long-awaited "The Crescent & the Cross". This was not just an expansion to the other Dark Age supplements but took the game into the early Crusades along with the full game rules and seven new scenarios. A review of "C&C" on this website saw some 2,300 views in 24 hours. It seems fans of Saga couldn't get enough!

At the end of 2013 the lovely guys at Gripping Beast kindly started sending models to me for review for the sagatapestry. The quality of the products seen has been very high.

2014 saw the release of the plastic Arab spearmen and archers box set from Gripping Beast - a great addition to support C&C. You can see our review here.

Other Vendors products have been covered as well - we would welcome more items for review. You can contact us at WWPD - see the About page on the www.wwpd.net website.

So, what else has gone on and will be going on?

Happy New Year!

In just over two years of contributing articles to the Sagatapestry I have seen the number of Followers increase from 90 to 197. I think it is fantastic that so many people have found interest in our website and I hope it is a trend that carries on.

SAGA continues to fascinate with its simple but clever mechanics. Thank you to the guys and gals at Gripping Beast and Studio Tomahawk for this great legacy.

If you're interested in contributing an article (or more) to this website then please get in contact with me (PM to 'ambler' on the WWPD forums) or contact Steven or Jon from WWPD!

Thank you from me to you all and I wish you a very Happy New Year.
