SAGA - ANGLO-SAXON LEVY SLINGERS

I brought some much needed missile levy for my Anglo-Saxon/Danish force being in the form of some Slingers. I painted them up quite quickly finishing them over a few nights - very unlike me I know.

I have to admit I dont like the sculpting of these guys much , there faces are very long (almost ape like), and there hands are huge (I mean honestly they look massive)
oh well , at least they are all done and dusted .....

SAGA - SAXON HOUNDS

I got my unit of Hounds for the Saxon force all painted and based up. The unit comprises of 7 hounds and pack master, but I got them in 2 packs of 3 hounds and master so I am assuming my unit is rather unruly and requires an additional man to keep em under control.

The special rules for the Hounds unit are rather cool, it counts and is activated as a warrior unit, their movement is M which can never be reduced (by fatigue) which is handy. Also and this is the best rule - during melee , both sides skip phase 3 of the combat, this means that skills and fatigue can not be used by either side ...........  very good as both sides must rely on their normal combat dice and nothing is added or reduced  - great if your opponent has loaded up on defensive melee skills and unable to use em ..

CONGO - WHITE MANS YOUNG WARRIORS UNIT

Finally finished the last unit of my Congo Whiteman Explorers force  YAY , being the Young warrior unit.

These young chaps are armed with Assegais and shields so they make a rather cheap unit. They only have D6 Shooting and D6 Terror dice, but have a D8 Melee dice so ok in that regards.  Good to see the force all done and dusted.

SAGA WARLORD WITH SPEAR

Brought this Warlord on trademe for $2.50 , not sure what army I will use him for  - possibly for the Saxon force perhaps. He finished up quite good.

SAGA - MOOR CAMEL UNIT

 I brought a unit of six Eastern Camelmen on trademe a while ago now very cheaply,
I ideally need a unit of 8 - so on the lookout for 2 more of these if anyone has them for sale (or can tell me the brand name perhaps?)

I finished this one as a test model and think he came out very well, hopefully get the other 5 finished soon ,  They are some very cool looking sculpts with a lot of high end detailing involved so rather pleased with them,

I intend to use the Camel unit in my Moor Saga force as unit of 8 mounted Bedouin Scout mercenary's, as they have rather fun rules that suits my play style.
