AAR: Franks v Welsh in Champions of God

I managed to get a very quick game of SAGA in recently. Four points of Franks (all mounted) versus four points of Welsh Warriors.

Four pieces of scenery were chosen and placed on the table. The mission selected was "Champions of God". The objective is for one side to get 3VP's more than the enemy (Slaughtering Victory points) at the end of six turns.

The Franks won the first turn, the Welsh got to roll three Saga dice to put on their battleboard at the start of the game. Then the Franks got to roll their six Saga dice....

Speaking Frankly...

If there is one faction that is hard to pin down and say "why should I run these?" then surely it must be the Franks.

Why would anyone want to run a faction that doesn't have any overt Combat abilities?

What makes a good Saga army?

Now there's a question!

Each faction has its own unique flavour, typified by Battleboards, but what about the general makeup of an army for Saga? Is there a "best approach"?

Review: Gripping Beast plastic Arab Cavalry

Gripping Beast were kind enough to supply a box of each of their new plastic cavalry offerings for "Saga: The Crescent & the Cross".

So what's in these two new boxes.... let's take a look....

What is it about SAGA anyway?

Having seen the posts rolling up on the WWPD Saga forum over the last couple of months I have been trying to work out what attracts people to the Saga wargame.

I wanted to try and find out why and invite some discussion.

Assembling the C&C Spanish plastic army

Following on from my previous article, I have now assembled and undercoated my Saga plastic Spanish army.

There are: one mounted Warlord,  2 points of Hearthguard (8 mounted Knights), 2 mounted warrior units (16 mounted spearmen with shields), 1 point of foot Warriors (various weapons and shields) and 1 point of levy (unarmoured javelinmen). Plus one spare foot figure with armour (you never know when you need a foot figure!!)
