IntroductionSome time ago, I became interested in the SAGA rules by Gripping Beast/Studio Tomahawk. They seemed to fit my idea of a quick, fun, narrative game very well. Despite not knowing anything much about Dark Ages warfare, I ordered myself a 4pt starter warband of Vikings. This was back in February 2011, so about 2.5 years ago!
I painted up the Vikings quite quickly (for me) and in 2012 I ordered a Scots warband as well so that I could field both sides and actually play the game. These have taken me much longer to paint, though I'm making some progress now.
In order to try to keep my enthusiasm going, I thought I'd show my Vikings today and see what all my readers think of them.
The less well-off members of the band aren't as heavily equipped, but they're still good at fighting.
ConclusionSo there we have it: 4pts of Vikings. I'm probably 1/2 of the way through painting their Scots opponents; if I can keep up the current flow then another month should see them finished. Then I'll have to see about setting up a game...
Of course, by the time I'm finished I'll probably find that everyone else has moved on to something else that's even more "shiny". Ronin, anyone?
