Saga Age of Magic
« on: April 08, 2019, 10:23:56 AM »
I picked up my copy of Saga Age of Magic at Salute, and I'm planning to use my Empire for Great Kingdom. Anyone else picked it up/pre-ordered it?

Is it based on the Saga historical rules?

Yes, it's the new supplement. Normal saga rules but with six new baords representing fantasy troupes, new unit types (monsters) and a magic system.

Ok ... so I presume the following ...

Great Kingdom ... human
The Horde ... rats
Lords of the Wild ... elfs
Underearth dwellers ... o&g
Otherworld ... demons
Undead Legions ... undead

How close am I?

Oh Damn - I forgot to look for that on Saturday.

I had the Dark Ages and Crusade books down on my "Can I find it cheaper at Salute?" list, and forgot to browse that on.

Of course I did get a few other bits and pieces  :engel:

You mean they will be using Ouija boards instead of Tarot cards for their business plans from now on?

You would have needed to pre-order it to get it as Salute, no one else would have had it.

There is more freedom with the boards with what they represent. Thinking in warhammer Old World terms.

Great Kingdoms - any civilized kingdom; humans, high/dark elves, and dwarfs/chaos dwarfs.
The Horde - barbarians; Norse, Chaos Marauders, Orcs, and Skaven.
Lords of the Wild - tree folk/wild/nomadic; Wood Elves, Beastmen, Lizardmen, and Forest Goblins.
Masters of the Underearth - Dwarfs/Chaos Dwarfs, Goblins, and Skaven.
Otherworld - angel/insubstantial/nightmare creatures; Chaos Daemons, Lizardmen (more AoS version).
Undead Legions - the Undead; Vampire COunts/Tomb Kings; and classic Undead.

That looks very good!  I'm glad that armies can be used on different lists, excellent idea. :icon_biggrin: :::cheers:::
