Something Else Sunday: Normans for Saga

As we've mentioned on both the podcast and the forum, we though it would be neat to "try something different" every Sunday.  We plan to stay focused on FoW Monday through Saturday, but we're versatile gamers and we're willing to bet you are too.  So, to kick off these Something Else Sundays, here are a few pics of my first Normans for SAGA!




These are Conquest Games plastic Norman Knights which are a great deal.  The shield transfers are by Little Big Man Studios.


All of this was purchased from Architects of War, who were very communicative and seemed very friendly!


The only issue is, of course, that the Conquest Games normans don't have the "boss" on the shields- and the transfers do!  I painted them gunmetal for now, but need to use some greenstuff to add them in later.



Stay tuned for more as Dirty Jon and I prepare to pit our forces against each other in furious, medieval combat!

Nice, Saga seems to be the order fo the day at present. Tempted myself...

Nice work Steven, maybe a thinned down Badab Black wash on the chainmail and Ogryn Flesh/Gryphonne Sepia on the leather armor to enhance the details?

It's really nice to see you guys taking a dive into something else. I think "something else Sunday" is a very good idea.

Great job on the Normans - I like the Conquest models also. As for a wash, you might consider Gryphon Sepia for the armor - I use it on my Romans and it gives a nice and dingy / sorted of slightly rusted look.

Barb and Ernie over at AofW are great to deal with.

Nice. I have been tempted by Saga for some time. I am really curious to see Tomahawk and Musket by the same guys. French and Indian War :)

Andrew said...

Looks cool, will we get to see an explanation of Saga from you guys or just mini pics? How about a battle report at some point?

Tyler said...

I would also be interested to hear about the game mechanics. What factions can you play as?

I third the wash, takes too ticks and it'll really bring out the great detail you get on 28s.

Thanks guys!

1) I did give them what I considered a hefty wash, but no harm hitting em again if it isn't evident :)
2) You will absolutely see Saga battle reports. I didn't write some software to generate batreps for nothin!
3) We'll certainly have some segments on SAGA on here- maybe a mention or two on the 'cast.

Bill Dorais refers to Saga players as Sagomites. I like it.

They look good. Normans have beaten my Vikings 3 out of 3 times.....dang it!
But it is lots of fun.
Cheers

We have just picked up the rules for SAGA here and are looking forward to giver it a whirl. My poor Vikings from Warhammer Ancients have been sitting in there box unused over the last several years and are dying to bust Norman skulls.

Nice knights Steve, when they expand the system to include Carolingian franks I'll be in for sure, this is a cool period in history that isn't well understood by a majority of folks
