Saturday morning Warcry again :) This time the mission was The Raid: destroy 3 objectives.
In the first photo, the Gloomspite Gits are fighting hard to save an objective (the statue of the Heroquest wizard).
In the second photo, the Heart-Eater, peppered with shootaz' arrows, but still breathing reaches the 3rd objective to win the game!

Ooo, so Victrix are planning a Dark Ages Archers release... Now that is *very* interesting https://www.facebook.com/victrixlimited/posts/dark-age-archer-rendershere-are-the-renders-for-the-4th-dark-age-archer-figure-h/2033247430144474/
Clarification. In SAGA:
* 1 point of levies is 12 minis
* 1 point of warriors is 8 minis
* 1 point of hearthguard is 4 minis
I'm adding extra minis to make Oathmark units. In Oathmark, units are formed in ranks of 5 guys.
Current army composition:
* 12 guys with spears (1 point of SAGA levies, one unit of Oathmark spearmen)
* 10 guys with armour OR helmets, and axes (1 point of SAGA warriors, one unit of Oathmark soldiers)
* 5 guys with armour AND helmets, and swords (1 point of SAGA hearthguard, one small unit of Oathmark warriors)
* 2 spellcasters (for Oathmark)
That's 27 Victrix Vikings minis +2 from WizKids. I have 33 more Victrix Vikings to go.
My aim is to first complete a 6 points SAGA band.
Looking at non-GW games and minis at this point gives me a little bit of the same feeling I was getting 20 years ago with free software.
With Age of Sigmar, GW are trying to reinvent fantasy wargaming by coming up with their own tropes etc. This is super interesting and creative. But I also want to be able to just have, you know, regular elves and dwarves.
In fact, I think they are doing a standard capitalist tactic: differentiate from generic products so your clients will have to use your stuff.
I am in a bit of a hobby money dilemma. I have saved up 70$ towards getting the new Warhammer Quest box. With my current rate of savings, if it is between 200-300$ I should be able to get it by the summer.
But I also realized that my Oathmark humans/SAGA vikings army doesn't have any archers. And I could just get some for something like 35$.
It would undercut my savings but it would complete my army... Maybe even allow me to also repurpose for Frostgrave as well...
