May-June Update addendum: Saga and Warhammer1000


Good day to you all!

Over the last two weeks I got a chance to fight and win a Saga Battle against those pesky Irish who have crushed me so often in the past. It was of course quite satisfying. Now I was lucky with my dice, and we played the Crossing scenario, a scenario which was the closest I ever came to defeating Keith's Irish in the brown. This time my men pulled through. I ran 4 warrior bands, while he ran a unit of hearthguard, a unit of warriors and the two bodyguards (I call them Terrence Hill and Bud Spencer from the acting duo)



The initial dispositions.

First Movements!



Clash in the ford!


The phalanxes inexorably push forward!


The redoubtable Bud Spencer, holds back 6 warriors!  


But in the Saxon phalanx pushed forward!


Meanwhile in a Galaxy far away....


The Anglo-Saxons have crossed the river!


This guy survived Terrence Hill, the Irish Warlord, Slings, Warriors and kept giving me his units Saga Die,


My warlord slays the Irish one


While my warriors FINALLY SLAY BUD SPECNER! WHAT A GLORIOUS MOMENT AFTER 14 GAMES!


The end of the game!


Meanwhile I also finished after two year painting the next army in my Warhammer1000 project. This is about 1000 points of Beastmen. The war-party is made up of a warlord, battle standard bearer, shaman, 20 gors, 15 bestigors, 10 un-gors, a chariot and 4 Minotaurs.
