The current "in" games are Chain of Command, Sharp Practice and Saga, all of which are periods I have some miniatures for but no experience of the rules and how they play, so tonight I went along to have a go at the new edition of Saga.
|The Bóndi Matt leant me about to outflank the Anglo-Danes!|
We played a simple "kill the warlord" game but I found it an enjoyable experience, the rules (as probably most of you know) are simple to play but hard to master. The Gods of dice rolling favoured me hugely tonight with my Thrall bow unit exceeding expectations and causing heavy casualties for Rich's Anglo-Danes, who subsequently disintergrated as my Bóndi and Hirdmen smashed into the remnants of his army from both flanks!
|The kickass Thralls having lost three men, but inflicted eight losses on the Anglo-Dane warriors...|
All I need to do now is find those boxes of Gripping Beast plastic Vikings I've had sat around for ages to make my own army...
