Welsh War Band (Part 1)

IMG_1878

The very first figures I painted a group of 12 Bonnedig (Levi), armed with slings, one point for Saga.

I fell into the hobby when I was staying with my good friend and adversary Omer, whist down on my luck a few years back. He kindly gave me some Gripping Beast plastics to paint with him of an evening and introduced me to the game of Saga which would become a passion of mine.

I used his no nonsense approach to painting to get these guys on table and ready for battle quickly. No mucking about ! 

The were closely followed by two groups of 8 Priodaur (Warriors), two more points for my Saga war band.

Welsh Priodaur can be a real nuisance as they are armed with javelins. Especially when they use the terrain to their advantage. As Omer’s Viking,  Yomsviking, Norse Gael and Saxon War bands will all attest to. Omer hates our pointed sticks 😀
