In celebration of the bank holiday weekend we ran a series of games as a loosely-linked league. It was Vikings verses the rest (Irish, Welsh, and Saxons) over 3 games using Saga (6 points / army).
Game 1 - Saxons vs Vikings
In this scenario the Vikings were loaded-down with booty and attempting to break through a large force of Saxons to escape. This was a toughie for the Vikings for a few reasons
- The Saxons has an entirely Levy army that filled the board from edge to edge - no easy way through.
- The Vikings have no inherent ability to move multiple units so being the aggressor would have to use most of the dice to move
- The scoring was for units surviving - the Vikings specialise in banzai charges where everyone dies
