…the scots never lost a battle…

It was a normal rainy day and we’re doing normal things with our lives…in the highlands.

Suddenly, in the line of horizon, a warband, they come treacherous… and from them lines and enormous “haggis”…cross lover… sun of a dog… came out defiant.

He cry for a duel of champs.

And so it began,,,

From our lines McMorg advances…

The champs met at the center of the field and the bastard “haggis” with a treacherous coup wounded McMorg twice.

McMorg stood up and call him bad names…and for our surprise the “haggis” run back to call his friends.

And like a storm they came on us. They are endless like the herd of sheeps of old Loops the Normand Bastard.

Our line tightened up, shoulder to shoulder to brace the impact.

But they don’t run to us, in Scottish way, they advance behind a shieldwall.

– What’s that? – Cry Fungus – we never fight hiding behind shields. –  Herd of Haggis…-

Them leader, the “great haggis”, shield himself with his man and order the advance from behind…

They clash in our line…ignoring our leader the “great Haggis” and his man go for our heartgard…few in numbers, and kill them all. Like true Scots they fall fighting and taking a lot of enemies with them. With a cry our warriors charged them to revenge the comrades and finished them misery, but is a trap…new, fresh enemies come to the fray , endless enemies…

We prepare for sell our lives and McMorg step out of our line to make a final stand and die like a brave highlander in single duel. The” great Haggis” is treacherous and bring his heartgard with him to the fight

McMorg fight surrounded by enemies and…With 6 nasty bloody scratches, and inflicting 4 horrible hounds in the Haggis he survived.

So… for history… to be told… (In the highlands any way…) and songs to be written…

“They come to kill our leader and they failed… They come to conquer our land and slave us all and we still here (fewer) free scots in the highlands… but free…

now they know… we are highlanders of clan McMorg, they have to kill us all to claim victory.

…the scots never lost a battle…

I am Uhtred, Lord of Bebbanburg

Yes! British people!

Dark Age  really catch my eye, and I always want to do a Anglo-Saxon army.

Until recently this was not possible because:

  1. WAB was the system that everyone played… and it was boring as hell!
  2. Only metal miniatures available;
  3. WAB = Huge armies = way out of my budget.

And then it came… SÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁGAAA!

SAGA. 🙂

SAGA is a historical miniatures game produced by Gripping Beast and written by Tomahawk Studios wherein you play one of the various factions questing for glory and conquest in Dark Ages Britain: Vikings, Anglo-Danes, Normans, and Welsh. They’ve published two supplements:

  •  Northern Fury, which introduce the Anglo-Saxons, the Breton, the Scots, and the Jomsvikings.
  • The Raven’s Shadow, which introduce the  Franks, Irish, Norse Gael & Strathclyde Welsh.

Inspired by the Saxon Stories of  Bernard Cornwell, where Uhtred, known as born in Northumbria, but captured and adopted by the Danes,  and later Shield of Wessex and Sword of West-Saxons, protecting the Saxon Kingdoms against the Danish invasion, I decided to invest in a small Anglo-Saxon Saga Warband.

Pick up the GP Anglo Saxon 4pts starter set, a GP plastic box of Saxon Thegn and a couple of Westwind Productions archers and Saxon Command…and where we got! A small Saga Warband…

… 2 pts of Hearthguard, 6 pts of Warriors and 3 pts of Levy! Of course the Westwind Productions blister give me a Uhtherd Warlord and  the plastics thegns box was used to build Ælfrēd, King of Wessex!

…this was supposed to be a small army! What the **** did happen here??…hum…I need some mounted Heartguard and Warlord…

Finally the WIP.

Sorry for my lake of painting skills and photography!

More to come!

Eu sou Uhtred, Lorde de Bebbanburg.

Sempre quis fazer um exército de Anglo-Saxões.

Até há pouco tempo isso não era possível porque:

  1. Os sistemas de jogo era WAB … e aborrecido como o caraças;
  2. Só havia miniaturas em metal;
  3. Era caro como ó raio!

E depois veio…. SÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁÁGAAA!

Saga. 🙂

SAGA é um jogo de miniaturas publicado pela Gripping Beast e produzido pela Tomahawk Studios, onde cada um jogador parte em busca da fama , conquista e glória na Britania da Idade das Trevas, com Vikings, Galeses, Escoceses, Anglo-saxões, Francos e outros (lançados sucessivamente ao longo de mais duas expansões Northern Fury e The Raven’s Shadow).

Obviamente inspirado nos livros de Bernard Cornwell, onde um Saxão criado por Vikings passa grande parte da sua vida a lutar contra quem o criou, defendendo os Saxões do Oeste de Ælfrēd contra as sucessivas tentativas de invasões Nórdicas lancei-me de cabeça num bando Anglo-Saxão.

Comprei a caixa base de 4pts  GP, outra de Thegn de plásticos da GP e mais uns quantos blisters de arqueiros e comando da Westwind Productions…e já está! Um “pequeno” exército de Saga.

Isto vai dar-me quase todas as opções!… São 2 pts de Hearthguard, 6 pts de Warriors e 3 pts de Levy! Não podia faltar o Warlord, Uhtred, e Ælfrēd, o Grande, Rei dos Saxões do Oeste.

…e de repente…deixou de ser pequeno…e falta a Heartguard a cavalo…

Agora os WIP…

A skill de pintura e fotografia é baixa…por isso dêem-me um desconto.
