AETIUS & ARTHUR - NEW SAGA SUPPLEMENT BOOK !!

I have  just heard that there is a new Saga supplement book "Aetius and Arthur" thats due out mid February next year, which is great news !




The Supplement book is to be set back in the Late Roman days around 410AD when the Romans have abandoned Briton to defend their own borders against the Barbarian hordes crossing the Rhine in Western Roman Empire, then theirs the issue with the Visigoths having raided Rome's interior and must be repelled, also the imminent threat of the Huns arriving on Romes Eastern front to deal with. And with the Romans leaving Briton, the poor Brits are left to deal with the invading Saxon armys to the north and the ever annoying Picts that constantly raid their lands.

There is to be 6 new factions : the Romans, Britons, Saxons, Picts, Goths and the Huns which sound all very good, I think I will be doing the Romans for sure and the Goths sound very cool as well,  needless to say I am looking forward to the Saga Battle-boards for each of the factions.  I have the Anglo-Saxon force already so hopefully its not much to turn them into the Saxon force.  My brother is already eyeing up the Picts and Britons with keen interest.

There is also to be new heros and Legendary units that will be available to each force ... im thinking of the likes of Merlin, the Visigoth Alaric, Attila the Hun, the fierce Saxon brothers Hengist and Horsa and of course Arthur and his Round table knights unit. The book has also four new Saga missions to go with it as well.

So very much looking forward to this new addition to my Saga gaming .......roll on February !

  1. Looks cool we should have another saga game at some point. The Romans will make Warren happy.

    1. yeah mate, would be good to have another game at some stage, dust off those Vikings you have. I have talked to Warren and his Romans would be good start for him when the new book comes out.

  2. SAGA seems to be lasting quite well. Brett and I play quite often, and there's a couple of others on the fringe up here. What's the interest like out your way, do you think there would be many people interested in a few SAGA days next year?

    1. Andy and myself are very keen, theres several more that would be keen in the area as well - probably 6 or so if I ask around at the club ... I dont think Shep or Damien are these days as they never seem interested in playing the game.

    2. Sounds good. I could wrangle 2 or 3 others from up here for a trip down to one of your club days sometime if there's interest, play some games against different people and forces, and have some multi-player games. With FoW in a bit of limbo I think SAGA is long overdue for some more regular attention! Stay in touch.
