6 points fixed list, no composition change ?


6 point list. No changes through the day. So your one list needs to be able to try to do it "all"

so example -
Alain Berbetorte, Hero of the Viking age - 1pt
Hearthguards - 2pt
Warriors - 3pt

Means this is all I get to use through the whole day, for each scenario

change of armement, mounted/foot (thinking Norman) ?


This is fine. So you can mount/dismount or pick up crossbows, change unit sizes on deployment, etc



So if I have 2 points of hearthguard in my viking warband I can choose before each battle if one of those points are spent berserkers or not.

That is correct DJ.

Just back and wanted to say a big thank you to John (Ducat) for organising a fantastic day, wish my 9 to 5 work-day would pass as quickly!!

Thanks also to all my opponents, great gaming spirit shown all round as well as a very high level of skill. I for one welcome our new Belgian overlords! :D

Finally congratulations to Dick for keeping up his 100% record for Canterbury tournaments, we'll see you again next year then.... ;)

Yes thanks John (and all the other participants), great day. Young Kyle also had a very enjoyable time and has enjoyed telling just about anybody who will listen about scoring more points than his dad! It was very gracious of you to give up your place to let him play, so many thanks. As for me I'm just pleased that I managed to keep my warlord alive in at least one game :o

Many thanks to all the participants for a great day of Saga. We had 16 players on the day, who provided some fantastic games from where I was watching.

Many thanks also to Gripping Beast, who supplied us with some fantastic prizes to award some of the players.

Andy M won best painted painted army for his Vikings. This was an awfully hard choice to make, as there were many superbly painted warbands present. It was a very close call, but the extra little details that Andy had put into his force tipped it in his favour. Well done and hopefully I can get a decent picture off of my phone to show some of his work. Its not a bad one at all -

Some other pictures of the event can be found here -

Dick Jan won the most bloodthirsty general award, for his ability of not just killing a lot of the enemy he faced, but also his own entire warband in all three games he played. Truly did the fields run blood red when Dick Jan was present. I decided his fantastic approach to the game, along with his lethal performance deserved the trophy I had made for this.

Here are the final standings for the day, listed as - player, faction, final score, kills score (used for working out ranking on final scores, worked out as total enemy killed in vp minus total own army killed in vp)

1 - Kurt - Rus Princes = 9/53
2 - Alex - Byzantine = 7/16
3 - David M - Steppes = 6/24
4 - Cameron M - Viking = 6/6
5 - Ian Mackay - Jomsviking = 6/5
6 - Jan - Hereward the Wake = 5/24
7 - Paul C - Anglo Saxons = 5/6
8 - Mike A - Jomsvikings = 4/8
9 - David H - Normans = 4/6
10 - Steve G - Normans = 3/-5
11 - Andy M - Viking = 3/-13
12 - Joseph H - AngloDane(Cnut) = 3/-14
13 - Kyle - Welsh = 2/-23
14 - Ash - Viking = 2/-23
15 - Lee B - AngloDane(Cnut) = 1/-16
16 - Dick Jan - Viking = 0/-44

More stats -

Number of bands by faction

Viking x 4
Anglo danes x 3 (2 x Cnut, 1 x Hereward the Wake)
Norman x 2
Welsh x 1

Jomsviking x 2
Anglo Saxon x 1

Byzantine x 1
Rus Princes x 1

Steppes Peoples x 1

Scots were also present x 1(I was going to use them if I played to make up odd numbers)

Returned home yesterday after a great weekend; sunday I spent cycling along the coast and enjoyed watching a small sailing regatta. Also rethinking the day before: there must be some kind of historical error in thinking that Vikings ruled british soil for over 3 centuries. I found no proof in the three battles I have played ;) I would like to thank my opponents Cameron, David M. and Joseph for some great gaming.

John a great thank you for organizing the event and the great scenarios; I especially enjoyed the Holy Icon scenario and will play that one the next time I play Saga again. Also thank you for the most bloodthirsty award; now I can see in what round I have no vikings left on the table!

I will certainly try to attend a next Saga tournament in Canterbury! (time permitting).

Hope to see you all another time.

Thanks for all the positive comments chaps. It was a great day because you all made it so.

I am looking to run the same type of event again next year, but in the mean time I am also looking to run a "Saga Day" late this year, which will be more of a turn up and play affair rather than a true organised event.

In effect, turn up with an army, find an opponent, and have a game. tables and terrain will be provided. if worst comes to worst, and only you turn up, you get to play against me all day :lol:

I will post more details as and when I have them.

Cheers, John.
