Jordan Carasa is a new writer for the Tapestry and wanted to chronicle his getting into the game!
Back at Cold Wars in Lancaster, PA I was walking by a booth and saw it: SAGA. I told myself I didn’t need to get into another game but the seed was planted and I was done at that point; I knew it was only a matter of time before I was painting new toy soldiers. Now, when I get into a game, I look at two things:
1. Rules- Is it fun to play and is it easy to pick up. I have played the super complex games and now I just want to roll dice and have a good time.
2. Models- Collecting, hobbying and painting are my bread and butter. I need to have fun putting together my band of brave warriors and epic heroes otherwise, they won't get past the primer stage and live in my closet from then on.
-4 Hearthguard (High End Troops)
-8 Warriors (Middle of the Road Troops)
-12 Levis (Can you say, Dime a Dozen?!?)
That means that a Warlord could have his best 24 Hearthguard at 6 points or 72 Levis in the same list. My money would be somewhere in between.
Thanks for reading,
