SAGA: Battle Report - ''Time Flux''


Vikings Vs Crusaders

With a crash of light and the beat of thunder the mists parted, today the Gods will have their fun tonight, as laid before them were warriors of different ages prepared to fight while there chosen champion faced off.

So last night at my local gaming club I had arranged for a 6pt SAGA game, not knowing what I'll face I brought my Vikings and ended up facing Crusaders from the C&C book... Oh dear not very historic then hehe.

The battle would be The Challenge scenario with both Warlords facing each other 4" apart and the Warbands deployed away and needing to rush up. The other mod is that the Warlords start with 12 HP's rather then 2 as normal.




Despite the Vikings taking out 2pts of mounted Knights and taking 6hp of the Crusaders Warlord they weren't faring so well as the Hearthguard and Bondi took  damage from a rather heavy stacked Crusader Board. And my Warlord dropped to 2hp.. ouchy.






Crusaders took the day as they Crusader Battle Board is rather overpowered but it was great fun and it's time to get the Revanants painted... Historic Game you say? Ha!

  1. I've noticed the battle boards don't balance so well when you cross time zones so to speak. I actually think the game works best when you stick the forces from the original book.

    1. I don't think the OG forces are balanced at all really, you have Welsh and Anglo-Danes both top tier factions, Vikings are middle Tier and Normans which well suck unless you max out Knights and Crossbows. From the DA expansions Irish has to be the worst even with their Doggies :) Looking forward to getting my Crusaders and Revenants painted though as both seem quite gameable :)

  2. I love the fact that you and your opponent played what you brought - historical accuracy be damned. And its not surprising the later-day forces won . . . it would be odd had a bunch of Dark Ages dudes beat up on some gallant Crusaders. Next time, just make sure you opponent spots you a few extra points. Looks like a 4 point Crusader vs. 6 point Viking challenge would have been more sporting!
