25/28mm Saga Saxon/Danes

25/28mm Saga Saxon/Danes
Been playing Saga for a few years now not to competition standard with my friends at W.A.R.
most nights we manage to get in 2 or 3 games.
Over the years I have been asked to put on some demo games at the Winnersh Fete ( this is the hall W.A.R. has it club night). Like all fete you need to put on a show large battle .

Saga comes in to mind but with only a few figures on the table on both sides not much of a special.
With that in mine we can up with the idea of making the units double or treble the size.
Played a few game like it much more like a wargame than a skirmish game .
Has any body else try it ?  Lots of dice to throw and figures to lose .
Figures are in the main from Elite Wargames and Models and 30 archers are Gripping Beast plastic ones.

25mm Napolenics British V French

25mm Napoleonic's British V French
Back in the distant past well 50 years a go plus. One of my first army I built when I stopped buying
Airfix figures was a Napoleonic one well both sides and over the years I have added to them .
Over the years swards and bayonet have broken some I have replaced but keeping up with it is like paint the Forth road bridge .
Just a small skirmish  game 5 regiments a side . Figures and Hinchliffe and Minfigs and a couple  that I do not know now from wear they come from.

28mm Romans First SAGA Games with them at WAR

28mm Romans First Games with them at WAR
Ok before I start I should have gone through the battle board before hand . You know what Wargaming like must get on the table fast .
First Game Mike used his Strathclyde/Welsh  .My lads got shot in the back from off table archers
wear did that come from can I fire back no ho why not because you can not . Game when down hill from that time well it did for me . Lost that one on figure count . Make a note my buy Roman cavalry

Second game George wants to have a go at my Romans no Im happy to use my Anglo /Danes Im out voted by 4 to 1  ok Romans it is . George did not advance far from his start line but I did got my archers in range of his slinger and had a few hits . George likes hiding behind hills He then tried  to  take 2 figures off one of my archer units for exhaustion having give them 2 fatigued  markers  George they not levies show you the book .

Romans Third game Hand over my Romans to Mike to take on Rolly .Rolly used Georges Anglo/Danes Did not take any pick if that one .As this was Rolly second game of SAGA it was a slow game and Rolly having seen Georges tactic of hiding behind a hill Mike had to go forward
Romans won 1 lost 1 your guess is as good as mine on the third game .

First game Mike thinking of his next move


 Second game George  studying the battle board
 
Move 5 and he's still not coming over that hill
