Charge! SAGA

SAGA: Battle of the four cowards

So last Saturday I managed to play a couple of games of SAGA for the first time in almost two years. Both battles were four-player battles and both played out quite differently. The first one was a free-for-all, the players each started in one of the corners and had to kill as many men as possible within seven turns.

I decided to play with my Anglo-Saxons, we all had four points to spent on our warband, so I got three points worth of Warriors, creating two units of twelve Warriors. With my last point I bought a unit of mounted Hearthguard, to try an lure weaker elements of my opponents away from their main body and destroy them.

I can’t remember what my opponents armies looked like, but I went up against Scots, Jomsvikings and Norse Gaels… yay :p

And yes, that is 2d terrain. The host is an active Warmachine player, a game in which 2d terrain is a must-have with all those big and clunky (metal) models. I don’t like it either, but just bear with me 😉

Pijlie from Pijlie’s Wargames Blog supplied the miniatures and scenario for this tactical and fun game. Continue reading Witchfinder General: Summoning in the woods

Rain down destruction on Cryxians

A couple of days ago I’ve played a game of Warmachine 35pts against a Cryx player from my club with my mercs as part of the running Journeyman League and was a bit skeptical about my chances. My past encounters with Cryx did not go well and I am still learning the tricks about my mercs. But it all went really well eventually. Continue reading Rain down destruction on Cryxians
