Saga is my latest miniature wargaming flame. It is a very basic, straightforward game that is both tactically satisfying and unpredictably entertaining. Gripping Beast is really on to something with their battle board game mechanic.
My all purpose warband is 10th Century Anglo-Danish, but since they are Dark Age warriors, they could also be Hiberno-Norse, Vikings, Saxons, Scots, or any other grungy bearded dudes with stabby things and shields.
A fearsome Warlord leads the warband
Heavily armed and armored Huscarls provide a powerful elite force
Axe-wielding warriors are the primary offensive unit in the warband
Spearmen form the bulk of the warband
Stay tuned for forthcoming detailed Saga battle reports.
