October 9, 2012 by brennon

If you managed to get your hands on the 300th Anniversary copy of Wargames Illustrated (I can’t find one anywhere now!) then you will know that they teamed up with Gripping Beast to produce a special SAGA board for the Arabic sides involved within the Battle of Karbala

Wargames Illustrated 300th Issue

Well, along with that Battleboard you can now buy specially designed warbands for both Husain and Shimir’s side and recreate the conflict for yourself. These special edition warbands will only be available until issue 301 launches so be quick if you want them!
