Having a day off work £ the weather is nice, no hint of rain.
So I've Finally managed to get the Picts varnished with some Dulcote Mat Varnish

I would have liked to have had more practice with them though 😕

Pict Cavalry Finished

Managed to finish off the Pict cavalry.
They still need varnishing (if it ever stops raining!) then I can finish off the bases on these & the rest of the Warband ready for the Grand Melee in a few weeks.

Champions of God Introductory Game

Played introductory game with my 9yr old son today. 
He has been asking to play a game of Saga for a while.
We played with 3 points , just so that he could get the hang of the rule mechanisms.
He used Vikings while i used the Picts
We both used the same forces:
Warlord, Hearthguard, Warriors & Levy.
This only gave us 4 Saga dice a turn though. 

The game ended with the warlords fighting it out & killing each other, which meant that I couldn't generate any saga dice. 
When we toted up the points, he had beaten me by 3 points 😔
Overall he said he enjoyed it (especially beating me 😂) 
& would like to play again as well as paint some figures 👍

New Painted Miniature Galleries

There are now 3 new galleries of painted miniatures on the right,
WW1 British (mostly commissions),
WW1 German (all my collection) 
& some old Flintloque stuff, that has mostly been sold off.

Blog Update

I've had to add some better security to the blog comments as I've been getting some spam comments from some prat. I'm sorry for this as I've never wanted to have to do this, I know comments are few & far between these days, so sorry once again.
Also I will be adding some pages of photos of miniatures up, just to keep them on available due to the Photobucket Farce.

It’s a Raid!

We played the It's a Raid Scenario from the 
2017 Grand Melee players pack at the Ripon City Wargamers.
Pete used his Vikings against my Picts.
Scenario has 6 tokens (loot markers) placed around the centre line of the table.
when your miniatures come into contact with a token the activation of the unit ends, from then on the unit can only move 'short' & cannot drop the token. Markers are only dropped by losing combat or by being destroyed.
The Winner is decided by having most loot markers at the end of Turn 6.
We ended up putting all the markers evenly spaced around the centre of the table.
                                          Turn 3

Pete Grabbed 2 Loot Markers early (we used my unfinished fatigue markers for these, which are some Red Deer from Wrbases) on & i managed to attack one of the units making them drop the token, but i couldn't consolidate the win to pick it up. Whilst my Hearthguard cavalry tried to uunsuccessfully turn a unit of warriors into pin cushions!

                                           Turn 5
After a lot of toing & froing with the central markers, My unit of 8 tooled up mounted Hearthguard bounced off Petes 4 man Hearthguard!!! 
Perhaps i need to get them finished to help them be of some use??
On the right hand side my unit of Warriors sat in some Terrain looking after a loot marker with Masters of the Terrain in play & survived been shot at by the Viking Thralls.  
In the end it came down to a draw with both sides capturing 3 markers each.
Another great Saga game.
