I had a cracking night at the club yesterday. About 14 people turned up to play Saga and we discovered a faction that is even more devastating than the Jomsvikings at 1-2 points - the Normans. All they have to do is deploy their bow-armed levies and crossbow armed warriors at their back edge in the corners and keep shooting the crap out of you as you advance.
Saga Tip: if playing against them, try for maximum terrain and select options which can block line of sight!
Anyway, the bug that hit me last week came back again today although I seem to have shaken it off quicker this time so have been able to do some work on the reiters and mounted crossbowmen that I primed the other day. This evening I have done the white-wash undercoat and basecoats on the horses. The plan now is to get the mounted crossbowmen completely painted tomorrow - there are only 8 of them, so that should be feasible. I'll be doing black basecoats of the armour once I've posted this.
