A friend at my local game store has gotten me into SAGA. (Yu know who you are (that’s a pun that one person in the world is going to get)). I’ve not played yet, but we have some games scheduled in a few weeks. I’ve just started painting my army, but tonight I finished my warlord.
I used Gripping Beast’s Harald Hardradda figure, but I’ll use him as a generic Anglo-Danish leader.
Here’s what you get in the package. I ordered from Gripping Beast’s USA partner, Architects Of War. They shipped fast and have good prices, and an easy to use website. I got my SAGA rulebook from them, also.
Harald is BIG. I read up on him, and he was a big guy in real life, also.
This is where the shield attaches to his back.
I used a decal for the shield front. It was easy to put on.
The shield after the decal was applied.
When I primed the figure and the shield, I put a bit of blue tack over the parts that I would need to glue, so that I could glue metal to metal with no paint in the way.
The shield is attached.
Harald is painted and washed with The Army Painter Strong Tone ink.
Done and based. The sword on the base is from Wargames Factory Saxon Thegns. He’s on a 30mm Litko.net wood base with a heavy duty magnet base underneath.
I am really looking forward to playing SAGA. I’ve started on my Anglo-Danish warband. Hopefully I’ll have some pics of them for you soon.
