Viking Sagas, Part 3: The Director's Cuts
After digging around my hard-drive and through my old CD's, I unfortunately couldn't find any more pictures of my past epic Viking battles. Lost long ago through computer crashes and other things I guess. It would have been fun to tell a few more stories, but got to move on.
These pics weren't actually cut from the first two Sagas posts, just ones that Eric sent me a little too late to be included. Probably more of a Swan Song than a Director's Cut. I think they're a little bit better than the ones I took, so I figured I'd share them with everyone else. Plus, I like posting things on my blog that I enjoy going back and looking at as well. :-)
These pics also nice look back at some memories from the old Phoenix Games that used to be in Minneapolis, and the quiet after hours games that are sadly a thing of the past now. Even my Viking army is gone now after being sacrificed on eBay earlier this Summer. Although it had to be done, I very much regret it now.
Maybe someday I'll paint up some Vikings again for playing skirmish battles or even an army for Hail Caesar. The Wargames Foundry minis I had were OK, but I'd rather have some better quality figs realistically scaled like the Warlord Games' ancients line. I was hopeful when Wargames Factory and Gripping Beast came out with plastic boxed sets, but after seeing them up close I was left uninspired.
The Dark Ages is definitely a great period to play especially the skirmish level stuff, but for now anyway that ship has sailed.
Viking Sagas, Part 1 can be found here, and Part 2 here.
