Saga - New Irish army - featuring a real live opponent
I got in a game against Russell and his Vikings. Because we have not played in a while we just played the standard clash of Warlords. I was using my new Irish army. These are made out of the Wargames Atlantic.
I won the roll off so it was my band of warriors making an attack on Russell's camp
The Berserkers move up and get shot up with the Irish sneaky shot ability. killing 2. The warriors in the field sneak forwards and then kill off the other two berserkers with their javelins.
The Vikings have a great battleboard ability to shut down shooters however forcing Russell to use 2 Saga dice to power that ability gave him less abilities to power up his warriors.
It will be interesting to see how the Irish hold up against some charging cavalry, they really need to hide in terrain so they don't get run over in the open.
A fun game and I am going to organise so Saga days at the club in 2021.
