On your Cart! - Part 2

by Mike Wood

Following on from the last post about the 4ground carts, I now have three presentable baggage pieces for the Saga wargame. They were based and had beasts of burden added. Each base is 10cm by 5cm, the maximum allowed for "The Escort" mission in the main Saga rulebook.

The Bases were textured then painted with brown Vallejo paint. Then static grass was added, grass clumps glued in and some fake water effect added to the ruts.  I would like to revisit them as I can see some problems, but for now they seem at home on the game table.

AAR - Vikings vs. Scots

by Eric Lauterbach

Another grudge match of Joe Moore's beautiful Scots and Eric's Vikings.   It was a ugly affair.  Not much fancy happened in this fight. We met in the middle and shield wall vs shield wall blood bath began.

AAR - The Escort - Vikings v Anglo-Danes

When two forces clash over a baggage train, who will prevail? In "The Escort" a 6 point Saga Viking faction is protecting a convoy of carts as they cross dangerous territory. A band of Anglo-Dane hearthguard is trying to stop them. Who will be victorious?

The Vikings have to get two carts off the far table edge, to help they take the first turn..... Anglo-Danes line up to stop them. The terrain will not make this easy as the carts cannot travel on uneven ground. The Vikings choose to start with the hill to their back. The Hill would make it hard to get off the table if the table sides were reversed!

The Vikings move several units forward.....

Sagatapestry at 100

If you haven't already spotted then it is worth a mention that there have now been a hundred items posted on this website. A truly great effort from a number of contributors. Thanks to all who have written, read and supported Saga on WWPD

It's been over a year since I was drawn into the world of "Saga" through the WWPD forums.  Who would have thought that from an initial "interest" it would go so far....

On your Cart! 4Ground Carts for Saga

One of the scenarios in the Saga basic rulebook  is called "The Escort". For this you need three items of "baggage" that need to be guarded by one of the players. You could use some peasants, animals or boxes and bags based up, but one possible way of representing these items is to use carts. I bought three varieties of cart from www.4ground.com and wanted to show how they look when assembled. The rules of the scenario allow for each baggage piece to have a base size from 4x4 cm up to 5x10 cm.
