Irish Champions

IMG_1892

The second unique feature of the Irish in Saga is the ability to upgrade 2 of your Fianna (Heathguard) figures to Curadh (Champions). So these were the next figures added to my Irish war band.

Curadh act as individuals so a single figure makes up a unit. They can be mounted or unmounted. They share some of the abilities of a War Lord, although are obviously not quite as powerful. (Full rules are in The Raven’s Shadow Saga rule supplement.)

These guys came in the pack with the figure above the 2 in chain mail have served as Fianna in my interim war band. They will probably become alternative Curadh models now, as I have 3 points of nasty Dane axe wielding manics awaiting final touches, varnish and flocking on the painting table as I write ready for my all new Irish war band 😀

The chieftain in the centre has thus far only made the table as a N.P.C.

The big fellow at the top is from Reaper Miniatures which I picked up in the UK from Miniature Heroes and was originally bought for use in D&D.

The rest of the figures came from Crusader Miniatures.
