Well a week or so ago I finished this little fella, a Druid for my non christian armies. The rules for the religious advisers in Saga I don't think are over the top, like some of the Hero's of the Viking age are, but that's just my opinion. I played a game a few days ago and I felt it was a pretty even swap for one less warrior unit for the adviser, but later in the game I was wishing I had a few more warriors instead.
I've mounted him on a Warlord size base as he is kind of like a Warlord, and my goal was to build a little alter or have an old tree stump and him sacrificing a chicken, but I needed him for the battle that was upcoming, and I couldn't find any chickens willing to be sacrificed, so I went without. I might still come back to this and add something onto the base as it feels a little empty to me.
Unlike the Christians that have some nice figure choices I couldn't find any that suited me for a Druid type, so one day while browsing through the civilians Gripping Beast figures have I spotted a pack of shepherds they make. There were two figures I thought would make perfect druids, but I chose this one because of his staff and his other armed upraised, like it was to the Gods.
I think it came out okay, enjoy.
What will you find here? Ramblings from an aging gamer-miniature painter. When I first started out in this hobby computers were in their infancy and finding other gamers could only be done by going to conventions or as in my case bumping into somebody who happened to see me reading "Panzer Leader" on the school bus. Look how far we have come! The internet has allowed our small community to be able to connect on a level I never dreamed of when I was but a small lad. What I do hope you will find here is something interesting from one wargamer/miniature painter to another. I paint miniatures somewhat decently, so I will be posting some pictures of my work, and perhaps a review or two of games and/or miniatures. Most of all this is just about having fun and anything I post here is meant to be for that reason.
