Gripping Beast Plastic Arab Spearmen and Archers

Gripping Beast have delved into plastics again as part of their support for the Saga wargame. The new "Crescent and the Cross" expansion moves the game into the period of the Crusades. To help gamers with a new period this new box set of plastic 28mm infantry should help a lot! You can find them at Gripping Beast here.

Info: UK Saga Grand Melee 7th & 8th June 2014

We just wanted to let you know about the UK Saga Grand melee in Cardiff, Wales, UK this June. 

 It's a great opportunity to put your skills to the test and have a great time. The cost for the weekend looks great when you consider what you are getting for your money.

Please take a look at the updated package below (from the Gripping Beast website) and then check out the links.

For those who go - good luck and have a great time!

Hourrah! We are pleased to announce the dates for the first UK SAGA GRAND MELEE. It will be on the weekend of 7th & 8th June at the excellent Firestorm Games in Cardiff.
Two day and one day tickets are available now from Firestorm Games. One day tickets will be available in a months time.
Full details can be downloaded from here.
This is the updated version of the UK SAGA GM info pack. There are a number of changes in this version so read it carefully! In summary though:
• We have changed the factions you can use to EXCLUDE those in the Crescent & Cross. This is because of the delays in the production of the book which mean that people will not have had sufficient time to play with, or against, the new factions.
• We have decided to kick off on Saturday at 10:30 to give people who are travelling to the event in the morning an extra hour in bed!
• As a result of some clever re-jigging, we have been able to drop the entry price from £40 to £30 while still offering a bumper stash of prizes and providing goody bags and quality food.
• We will running some extra informal games in the evening for people who want to play C&C along with JUGULA and Muskets & Tomahawk games. And the bar will be open late!
The cost of entry is £30 for the weekend or £15 for a single day only. Lunch is included on both days and all entrants will receive a Goody Bag containing:
• Exclusive GM2014 Standard Bearer Figure (with detachable GM base so you either display him on his stand or base him up for your warband.)
• Exclusive GM2014 Fatigue Tokens,
• Exclusive GM2014 LBMS Shield & Banner for your figure
• Discount Voucher for SAGA purchases made on the day (Full trade stand in attendance!)

Saga at Salute - New Crescent and the Cross

I was looking forward to seeing the new "Crescent and the Cross" expansion for Saga at "Salute 2014" in London. I was not to be disappointed!

Alex Buchel and the team at Studio Tomahawk were there to show off their new Crusades expansion for the Dark Age wargame, Saga. They also had a fantastic Siege table to show off their painting and modelling skills.

Here are some images taken at the show... enjoy...

The Road to Salute 2014...

by Mike Wood

This week is a bit of a build-up to WWPD4Vets, ( 24 hours of Worldwide gaming experience) so instead of a normal article I wanted to let you all know that this coming weekend I will be off to Salute 2014 at the Excel Centre in London.

There I will be meeting up with Jasper Oorthuys from Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy Magazine. I will also be able to do the rounds and get to see a couple of great new products from the boys at Gripping Beast.

Yes, this Salute sees not one but two new game experiences.
