Based on the exceptionally successful video game the folks at Megacon have now released The Banner Saga: Warbands so you can carve out your own adventures against the Dredge in a Viking-inspired world.
The version of the game that you can pick up from the Megacon Webstore comes with the miniatures upgrade pack for the game. I reckon if you were going to get into this game you’d want to dive right in and get the additional content.
The basic version of the game available from regular stores will come with cardboard discs instead of the miniatures you see above. While that certainly keeps the cost down I think you need to go the whole hog, especially considering how good the miniatures look.
It makes your skirmishes look like this after all!
I’m interested to give this game a go. As a big fan of the video game I hope that a lot of the same things that made it a joy have carried over into the tabletop version. Interesting choices, tactical combat and wonderful characters.
Will you be picking this game up?
