DoW Foot Artillery

Here's the completed gun and crew.  I'm pretty satisfied with it.  I'm rarely satisfied with pics I take at home.  I need to educate myself about taking good digital pics of minis.  The biggest issue is, I think, that I'm pretty lazy about that sort of thing.  I'd rather be painting or researching uniforms or battles than something "technical" like photography.  Anyway, hope you like.

Painting Bench

A couple of pics of what I'm currently working on.  Duchy of Warsaw foot artillery.  Just doing one battery for now, but I have a second gun and crew as well.  I don't have a base though.  I'm thinking something like 50 x 80.  Figures are Front Rank.

More Saga

A couple of days ago, I was able to get in 3 more games of Saga.  Played a couple of different scenarios and had good fun.  No poetic battle report this time because I mainly forgot to take many pics.  Here's just a few shots of what I did get.  I was playing my Anglo-Danes again, 6 points this time;  we faced off against Robert's Vikings.






It's a really fun system.  A read-through of the rules gives the impression of simplicity, and the rules are fairly quick and easy - but the Saga Dice/Battleboard mechanic makes it really come alive.  Depending on which faction you choose, gameplay can be anywhere from subtle to challenging to in-your-face aggressive.  I'm happy this is finally getting played.
