We talked about this Kickstarter when it launched last week but now Red Box Games have been pushing on through stretch goals and Tre has been working hard to sculpt up the additional figures that will make up the finished product!
The first miniatures to be worked on were the two champions above as well as the Chosen in their battered and decaying armour that looks like it has been through more than one war. I love the look of the Hordesmen Champion in the middle as he’d make an awesome role-playing character or champion for a bigger unit.
The way I’d think about using these miniatures is to make a more ‘heroic’ SAGA warband. Use the rules for Vikings and bring these guys to the table; those blessed by the Gods and fighting for Hel herself!
Talking of Hel Tre has also been working on some female warriors to join your men in battle and these Shieldmaidens look particularly brutal and up to the task. Below them you’ll also see the Helrider although Tre has been pondering on starting again with him as he seems a bit too big for the horse he’s riding! I think I’d have to agree.
On the big monstrous side of things they’ve also got this towering Jotunn who will be stomping around the battlefield laying waste to everything in his wake. I’d love to use him as my stand in ‘Berserker’ unit in SAGA and hopefully my opponent would let me just use him with a couple of markers on him instead of having to have four models. I think that would be pretty epic.
Basically everything Tre is doing right now with this looks epic and with the lessons learned via previous Kickstarters he’s keeping it small and achievable. Good work!
