Having not done any painting for ages I decided that I would get the brushes out this weekend. This is partly prompted by my recent purchase of the Saga rules from Gripping Beast.
So after I finished some work on Friday I felt justified in popping down to Triple Helix Wargames in Westbury. I had in mind making a start on a Norman warband by buying a box of Conquest Normans. They didn't have any! So it was Gripping Beast Norman bow and spear instead.
I had also bought some Gripping Beast Vikings off eBay in the week - except I'm not quite sure that they are from Gripping Beast. But they still look the part.
It seems to me that whenever I mention these rules other people tell me how great they are. Warbands are either already being used or about to be built. Salute may see lots of Dark Age figures being bought.
