    Well if your looking and not totally set on either WoE or SAoM, you could check out Wargamers Vault  and look around a bit with your gaming group, maybe even give some of the free rules and demo rules a shot since it has a ton of them. Two Hour Wargames is a another option for rule sets and they have free demo rules that show off their core system a bit, but I don’t know if the mechanics are right for you which is also why I have not come out and said try KoW (simple gameplay though I hear it is hard to master). I mention THW because I believe they have a payfor ruleset that is heavy on narrative game play with a fairly nice setting that allowed quite a bit of “use what you want/have” for Saga sized actions (I got it along with some WGF plastic Persians, I will look it over and get back to you on it since I am busy at this weekend and its late as of this post).

    For actual games Dragons Rampart by osprey has a good sized community that you can talk to and has been out awhile so you can look it over, from what I can tell it has a “build your own army list” option that fits the minis you have laying around, including big monsters. There is also Axe Age which is another play with what you have war game for fantasy ,  such rule sets are actually pretty common for fantasy. If your in for smaller scale fights (one group of adventurer vs. another vs. monsters) there is song of blades and heroes as well as frostgrave.

    As to house rules, there are some games that  just should have them. A certain third party 50 minis or more postapoc SciFi game that had fairly good infantry rules but was limited in regards vehicle rules  comes to mind, and from the sound of it both WoE and SAoM have the same issue with monsters (you well want a dragon on the table at some point). Wouldn’t a good work around for new people be a print out to hand to new players or if you plan to have the new player in advance maybe as an email attachment so they can familiarize themselves the group’s house rules?

    I hear voices all the time telling me to stop.

    But I ignore them and keep killing

    @bvandewalker Thanks for the reply, definitely a lot to look through. I have already made my decision however, but I will keep the link to the Wargame Vault to have a look through for future games.

    I have made my choice.

    Northstar Military Figures posted on Twitter they were getting them back in stock last weekend so I thought I’d jump on that directly.

    The reason I chose to go with SAGA: Age of Magic is because it seems to focus more on the gameplay rather than all the bookkeeping. The bookkeeping really slows down the games for my group, more than with others I noticed. So I feel that we’ll get a more immersive experience with SAGA: Age of Magic compared to Warlords of Erehwon. I will probably still be getting Warlords of Erehwon somewhere in the future and maybe some of the other games people have recommended, just so we have some variety.

    Got the rulebook and AoM supplement yesterday. Really pleased with them. One of the best written and clearly laid out rulebooks I’ve read in a good number of years
