Introduction2 weeks ago, I showed my starter Viking warband and bemoaned how long it was taking me to paint up their opposition. Well, I was so inspired by the positive responses that I have not only finished the starter Scots force who will face the Vikings, but I've also played my first game of Saga! You'll have to wait a little for the game report though; this article will be used to introduce my second warband.
- The Vikings wear trousers, whilst the Scots have bare legs.
- Each force has a different colour of rim on their bases. For the Vikings I used the same dark brown as for undercoating the bases, while the rim of the Scots bases are the same pale brown as the dirt's top highlight.
- Some of the Scots clothing is more highly patterned, whereas that of the Vikings tends to be a single block of colour.
Little Big Men for both the shields and the flags on all my figures. Saga didn't originally have rules for standard bearers, but I'm sure they've been published as an update somewhere. At least I have the option of using these rules if I desire.
