Saga AoM Great Kingdoms

Saga Age of Magic is taking off in the Twin Cities and I just finished my 1st fantasy warband, the Great Kingdoms. I'll be taking them on the road next weekend to an AoM event in Wausau, Wisconsin. I'm so excited to see what other people paint and play!

They're built off of my Footsore Miniatures Welsh with some crossbowmen converted into firearms. The pegasus-mounted figures are by Fireforge Games. The Stone troll and a war bear are Atlantis Miniatures. The troll is missing from their page so probably being reworked. 2 war bears are by Reaper Miniatures. Norba Miniatures makes the superb bear riders. They're missing from the Norba website and probably being reworked as well.

Fantasy painting was a bit of a trial for me. The bronze on the bears was tricky and how exactly do you paint a Rock Dude? Overall, I'm happy with how the color and bear theme turned out.  Bonus, Great Kingdoms turns out to be a super solid board.  After losing my first game, I haven't lost another game since. Its a bit of a photo dump so hang on, here it goes!


 






Not fantasy but a good pic of this gaming life!
