SAGA Worthy Progress

Hey there,

I made some progress on my SAGA army (armies). I created a new leader and some warriors.

This is what everything looks like right now set up together.

Quite a few new ones but not everything has proper basing yet or is standing next to a decent unit. I will fix that in time and post some pictures of it. 

This is the new leader. I named him Halvar.

These new warriors got finished and I made them with the intention to leave them together. I went with a more pagan look for these.

Valhalla Awaits

When I started this blog I made mention of the fact that I had then recently gotten myself interested in SAGA. A game that hasn't seen much of my table since then. Until now. I recently felt I should maybe explore my models and add some to it. So I did. But I have not yet posted any of them here so I will do so now as I'm already nearing the finishing of a small warband. I have replaced some models with better looking ones.

I love the dark ages, so many interesting cultures and customs. The Pagans' love for life is one that I always found fascinating and kind of envy.

For this project I am creating several warbands again because I do have a playing partner but not one that collects the game too.

The Idea also was that I would build on and when I would feel like playing I could grab models off the shelves that could either serve as Vikings, Anglo-Danes, Anglo-Saxon or maybe even Joms Vikings. I will create several leaders so one can pick those up and choose them for their warbands leader at least.

In the end most of the warriors wear mail and a round shield. I hope to at some point own enough models to make this possible but I think I am well on my way.

Here is a small overview of what is finished so far.

This is my first leader. I named him Tostig. He is accompanied by a saxon banner bearer but that could always represent something else. The bearer is not stuck to the same base.

 A small unit of Warriors.

 And the second.

More to come soon.

Age Of Sigmar Moving On

Hey there,

The title of this post may be a bit strange but what it means is that while I keep making plans for this summer to get things done and such and in the meantime GW is releasing new things. Such as the Generals handbook. Which I got because it seems like a really fun book. The warbands I initially made are not entirely 1000 points. Which is what you play when you play the vanguard level games.

I've mentioned before that I hop from the one thing to the next on which I feel inspired at the moment so I expanded the lists so they are all 1k. minor expansions but sure fun.

I will go over them when I get to them most likely.

More to come soon.
