Notice crossbowmen running for cover but the Spearmen have driven off the Saxon warriors. Mind you I have not shown you the rest of the table!

saga of a failing norman knight
Well time to post a home game. My son wanted a game and I wanted to play SAGA so we agreed to a 4 pointer to try out my new Normans. He used Anglo Saxons due to the great ability to max out your unit size and get bonuses.
At the end of the game, Saxons have 1 mini from a unit of warriors on the end objective, 2 minis from a 2nd Saxon unit on the same object, 1 Warlord, a few levy and a single warror on the middle objective. The Normans on the other hand have...................none, no not just no objective but no miniatures. But wait, this is points based and I was seriously winning in turns 1,1,2,2. At the end of the game 8 turns later. Saxons 130 points, Normans 96 hmmmmm. Well done to my son and looking forward to painting up another Norman Warlord cos this one just did not do the work he was meant to. Battle of Hastings it was not.
