Last night I was able to relax over a couple of pints of shandy and 2 fun games of Saga. First game was a 3-point match against Mike. Unfortunately for my warband, my brain wasn't fully in gear and I made some tactical blunders which led to my warband being decimated very quickly.
The second game was a 4-player "Feast of Crows" scenario. Mike and Ian G both had Anglo-Danish warbands, Ian M was fielding Jomsvikings and I had my Vikings. I think this scenario would work better with an odd number of players as with 4 you tend to end up with 2 separate battles. My Vikings decided to take on Mike's Anglo-Danes and suffered badly from crappy dice. However, because the 2 of us did actually get stuck in, we ended up as winner and runner-up when the victory points were tallied. Yup - I got 2nd place despite only having 4 Hirdmen left out of my warband.
A couple of turns in - I've already lost a unit of warriors!
WIP: 30YW Artillery
I've made good progress on these this evening despite the heat making me lethargic. The carriages, wheel spokes, barrels and wheel rims have all been painted.
The crew have all had block colours done, just the detailing to do now, which I hope to get done tomorrow evening. I need to do some dry-brushing/weathering of the wood on the barrels and chests, and should probably do a bit of work on the flesh of the bare-chested crew figure.
Well, it's the pics you want, so here you go:
