Skraelings Saga

So I decided to start working on another army for Saga and picked the Skraelings.  They are the hardest army to play because of their battle board.  I picked them because it will force me to learn about all the different Saga armies.  The strength of the Skraelings is coping and blocking your opponents battle board.  To play them right you must know all the battle boards.  

The models I am using the the Woodland Indians by WarGame Factory.  They are nice models for the price but need some converting.  They are equipped with Muskets and last time I checks they did not have Muskets in the Dark Age.  So I am cutting them off and replacing them with a Javlin.  It is creating so unique poses for this army.  I attempted to paint some war paint on a few of the models but I don't like it.  The rest of this army will just be done in flesh tone and no war paint.  

I have a few other projects I'm working on so it might be some time until I finish this army and I will keep you posted on my progress.

America's War of Independence (AWI)

I started my next long term project and that is going to be a British AWI army.  I purchased my miniatures from Blue Moon and they are more of an 18mm then 15mm.  The detail on the miniatures is good for their scale plus the cost of the miniatures is great.  Taking part in the Old Glory Army Deal and getting a 40% discount I can build a large army at a low cost. We will be using Black Powder rules to push these models around the table.  The advantage of using the BP rules is we don't need a large army to start playing.  We just need a few unit on the table so we can play the game and then add more units as they get painted.  So I was able to get started on my new project with two units.  They are painted however I still need to base them.  I will keep you posted as I progress with this army.
