To get ready for our little Ragnarok Game day here in Phoenix on May 23rd, I decided to bust out and build a new army for Saga. I have been picking up a few Gripping Beast Plastic Saxon Thegans and Dark Age warriors box sets over the last month and decided that I needed to get started on this project. So about two weeks ago I started assembling the warriors.
First off I have to say the Gripping Beast plastic kits are awesome, and with two boxes of Thegns and one dark age warrior box I was able to assemble this whole army with only one metal model. I first started working on a two Hearthguard units of Ealdormen. I gave them all swords and did some extra highlights and brighter colors since these guys are the Warlords personal bodyguards.
|New extreme high lights on shields.|
|I like this pattern and color scheme|
|Red looks good as well!|
|Warrior unit one.|
|Warrior unit two|
Since Saxons have a special rule about levies getting better armor, I decided to do two units of Geburs armed with spear and shields. These guys are still waiting to get painted, but as of the time I am writing this they all have been primed black.

So there you have it, a quick little Saga update, will post more as the army progress'. I am really looking forward to the event next month.
