Painting Update - SAGA

A small update today. I've been very busy these past few weeks with school, graduation, and the crushing realization that I've now stepped beyond college and into 'real life.' You'll please excuse any panicked breathing. 

Although I haven't played anything - not even an arranged game! - I've done a bit of painting for my SAGA collection.

The first set is a point of Hearthguard for my Vikings, which recently arrived from Architects of War. I'm not sure whether it was the store's location or the reliability of USPS' Flat Rate shipping, but it only took two days to arrive. I should note that this is the last point for my Vikings, which gives me a full six point warband for the faction.

The second unit is a point of Warriors for my Normans. Now, normally unmounted Warriors are a bit of a flop when it comes to Normans - their Battleboard only supports cavalry and ranged units. Instead I'll use them as Flemish Mercenaries. They might not generate a Saga Die, but they do activate on their own and are armored as well as Hearthguard. They'll make excellent cover for my mounted knights, and the slow movement speed doesn't really matter in a faction that'll happily peg their opponents with arrows from a distance.

  1. Hey Dude, glad you are getting off your butt and prioritizing some gaming. The point of foot warriors is always useful to have a generic unit around, but I like the idea of using them as Flemish mercenaries. My dark ages blog is actually: and I'll put you on my "watching" zone. This gmail is for my other blogs, it's a bit confusing. Anyway, hope that the real world is treating you kindly job-wise and let's try to get some SAGA in after labor day! alex
