I have never played Saga but I know it is a skirmish type game with small forces, however the way Cross and Crescent is played at the club it looks like a proper battle, it has obviously been tweaked but it looks good.

I have now finished my Saxon cavalry and they are almost ready to be based, I used the paint on Army Painter Anti-shine suitably shaken with my home made shaker only to find it came out satin, I didn't shake the second coat as much and again it came out satin, pretty shiny satin on the black horses, so something is wrong. It's just as well I got that extra spray can of anti-shine as they will get a coat of that today. I have also put together my Roman cataphracts ready for priming, but I don't think I am going to do that, they are very clean and shiny and are covered almost completely, man and horse from head to toe in armour. Why prime them white then paint metal back on them, I will have to give certain areas a bit of undercoating but in the main they are getting an X-19 wash and off we go. I am really upsetting my normal routine these days and thinking outside the box, no primer and starting with the cavalry first!.
I have some more figures coming today, twelve Saxon slingers, these really will be the last figures for the Dark Age armies, I had planned more skirmishers but didn't count them as needed for completion its just they are not needed immediately. There's that OCD thing again, in the back of my mind there is a little seed starting to grow which tells me that I should bump up the cavalry of both armies to twelve man units from tens, just in case, now where's that bloody weed killer.
