Product Review: Battlefield in a box Large Craters and Ruined House

I recently picked up a bit more terrain for my WW2 collection it may be designed with WW1 in mind but a crater is a crater and I'd imagine European architecture didn't change much from 1914 - 1945 so the ruined building fits in really well.

So what does your $29 USD get you? Two craters and a ruined house and two baggies with flock and grass (I never use these I have about 50 or so little baggies around the house) and all pre-painted and it's done pretty nicely. The ruined building fits in well with the building that came with the old Jagdpanther box.

Overall it's cheap and ready to go straight away and as WW1 is played on a smaller table this is a good value product for WW2 I'd suggest picking up 3 or 4 of them if only for the ruined buildings.

God Wills it PART 2

So over the course of threeish weeks I've completed my 6 point Saga Warband. I hand painted the Crossbowmen and Foot Warriors and Hearthguard on foot but after painting that much white you hit a wall. So the knights and hearthguard on horse were all done with my airbrush and it saved soooo much time.

My List is made from the Crusaders list in the Saga book Crescent and Cross which also has the Saga rules within it too it makes it a very cost effective book and it tidies up some of the issues in the previous rule books.

My list consists of:
4 Knights on Foot
4 Knights on Foot 
8 Warriors on Foot
8 Warriors on Foot w/ Crossbows
4 Knights on Horse
8 Warriors on Horse

You may have also noticed a theme throughout the list :P there's a few small things that need finishing like varnishing and big flag for the Warrior horse guy.

All the mini's were from Fireforge Games but purchased from Wayland games for cheap this whole list came out of 2 boxes and one old Warhammer figure.

So as previously, sort of, not really thought about I've decided after one demo game to start Saga and as usual I'm not contents with smelly Norse folk or the sheep loving Welsh I've chosen Crusaders from the new supplement Crescent and the Cross.
I didn't 100% know what was contained within the book so I headed off to Fireforge miniatures for some of their sweet Templars but once again not content with tradition I though hells why not give my Warlord and his knights a more Holy Grail theme.....

It's Just a Scratch!
