What is Saga?

Every age has its heroes. Singular men, whose prowess and virtue have raised them above mere mortals, and who have forged their own fates through their determination, courage and strength. Their names have survived the passage of time: King Arthur, William the Conqueror, Achilles and Conan.

Whether they were born in popular legend, the fertile minds of writers or the annals of history, they live forever in our collective memory as the most celebrated figures of ages past.

However, for each surviving legend there exist innumerable others still waiting to be written. Thousands of heroes wait to prove themselves on the battlefield, to speak with fire and steel, and to carve their mark on the world around them. With the book in your hands, you have the unique opportunity to take part in the creation of these legends and to see them master their destinies in turn.

Your Saga begins here…

Saga is a skirmish game taking place in the heroic ages, whether they are historical, mythological, or sprung from the minds of writers. It brings to life the battles between exceptional warriors – Warlords, who defy their enemies on the battlefield at the head of their warband.

Pile of Potential – The Full List!

So I’ve spent some considerable time digging around my room to find what’s in my pile of sh… potential. This list is still missing a lot of non-Warhammer miniatures, but that aside this is complete. The remainder will be filled out once I get the time to look through my last remaining boxes.

As mentioned I have already posted about my Age of Sigmar collection. But here is the list in its entirety.

So what am I going to do with this? Well for a start I need to stop buying so much! Then I need to consistently paint stuff from start to finish, too many times have I painted a model to 80% completion then left it to do something else.

Therefore, this year my focus on painting will be the following:

  • Get the Kruleboyz Tournament Army ready for March 26th
  • Paint the Rogue Trader collection as and when they are received and don’t buy any more until complete
  • Finish the many, many models that are 50-80% complete and start clearing the semi-painted backlog
  • Get Cursed City painted ready to play with my family and friends.
  • Once that’s done it’ll be choosing units at random to paint to completion.
