Very nice models, btw... The colour scheme looks cool.
Yeap your both right Mercia is the place, and I'm having him represent 'Leofric the Grim'
Thought would be a good kingdom as it spread from Welsh border to eastern coastline, so potential for many skirmishes, also Leofric has an awesome coat of arms and very interstinf history and family line.
Had my first games last, played as anglo danish 3points and lost to JP as his viking warlord cut mine doen after a three turn grudge match! Then played vikings against Matts anglo danish, fun game lots of manouvring and intimidation, then a large viking rush that did ok, casulties pretty even both sides, but again it all came down to a warlord contest with both scoring three hits! Luck saved both mine and fate failed all of Matts, so lucky win for me...
Have to say SAGA is a real breath of fresh air! Its not hard to learn the rules (unlike some systems), and has fantastic depth of gameplay in the use of your factions battle board, in a way it rewards innovative ingame tactics and not rule-lawer style pregame strategies, which in my mind is what wargaming should be!!!!!
Anyhow my rulebook is in the shop now, so will looking forward to reading through that
Cheers Alex, for writing an awesome game, GB for publishing it, and to Wargames FC for giving two fun preview games!
