Saga: Gods and Monsters

I’ve been doing a few odd projects between larger ones for various clients (and myself, to prevent burnout). Some examples are a few characters for Saga: Dark Ages.

The first is an Irish (really, very Celtic) Warlord/Priest for a client’s Irish warband. He’s aggressively naked, ready to go on his rampage. Unafraid of the enemy, his only adornment, aside from the fancy hood, is warpaint. I sourced the imagery from various places, but favored spirals, swirls, and random symbols. I went for an asymmetric approach to make it more interesting. Beside him he has a trusty Irish wolfhound. His druidic weapons are bloody sickles. The miniature is from Warlord Games, from the same set as the Irish priests from the previous Saga: Celtic Lore post.

The second pic is a Welsh bannerman from my own Welsh warband. He will carry one of the force’s standards, or just ‘count as’ just for visual flavor. His banner is much less showy than the other Welsh standard, so he might be a Warrior instead of a Hearthguard. I painted the banner based on contemporary art styles. The minie is from the Gripping Beast Defenders of the Faith set. I like the idea of a local monk joining up with the warband for some proper religious fun (he might even be a brother or cousin of the Warlord).
