I mentioned in my last post that I was working on finishing up some units for a Bronze Age SAGA game at York Wargames show. I am making pretty fair progress so thought I would share this with you.
Before I do here are a couple of shots of my Warlords to give you an idea. I will do a full write up of the game with pictures of the full collection in February.
The actual Saga forces are built around the various waves of Bronze Age invaders remembered in Irish Mythology. Very little remains of this oral history outside of Ireland so its a good place to start with the Fir Bolg and Mylesians amongst others battling for supremacy.
I have tried to keep weapons, clothing and armour as near to Archeaology as possible but to give me distinc sides I have a colour pallet to separate them. One side havings lots of reds and browns and mostly having a red sash/cloth belt, the other being blues and greys with a blue belt. The above Warlords being the leaders of the red and blue factions.
The Wargames Foundry range by the Perry Twins is still one of my favourites, it is quite small though so I have needed to add both extra figures and a number of simple and small conversions.
Units in SAGA are fixed sizes, with Hearthguard in 4's, Warriors in 8's and Levy in 12's for a point each. We can add characters and heros to this at a cost too. So the initial job was to finish off a couple of units to give us more points to play with. I am also going to need some eye candy for the table.
So Portal and Pigs to follow.
