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 😉

As every miniaure gamer can tell you, you can literally throw every cent you make into this hobby and still see more new shinies on the horizon. And I have done this for years… but that is now at an end! Continue reading Wargaming on a tight budget
So last Sunday I went all the way to Uden (a few hours drive from my place) to set up a demo table and play a couple of games of Saga. The visitors were few, but of fun, there was a lot! ;-D Continue reading Saga at Impact 2014

In my last post, I’ve reviewed some Dark Age buildings from 4GROUND and I definitely like them. They have great character and really give a sense of realisme to your battlefield. But during assembly I did come across a few quirks which I wanted to share with you. Continue reading Tips for 4GROUND buildings
This week I picked up 2 4GROUND hovels for my Saga games. These are MDF lasercut pre painted houses from 4Ground and I was very excited to build them and see if they truly are as easy to assemble as some people kept telling me. I bought the Anglo-Dane Hovel and the late Saxon Hovel Continue reading Review: Dark Age hovels from 4GROUND
Last saturday a group of men from the Facebookgroup “Dutch Miniature Wargaming” got together in Zutphen to play Saga and try out War and Conquest to see if it eclipses Warhammer Ancient Battles… Even though we lost, the game is definitely better!

As is often the case when buying miniatures for wargaming, you get multi-bases with them. And, yes, in wargaming they are extremely usefull. But if you want to use a box of wargaming miniatures for a skirmish game, the big bases are not usable. How can we fix this? Well, here is how I did it! Continue reading How to split a multi-base (Renedra)
Last Saturday I hosted a small Saga tournament and with four players it was a small tournament, but very fun and challenging nonetheless. The diversity between the players was little with 2 Viking and 2 Norman players. Luckily we all had very different warbands with us and when all the models were placed on the table we started with the first round. Continue reading For King and Country II Saga tournament
