Otherwise have been playing SAGA A+A and started an Age of Wolf campaign. My 4 factions are:
Romans ( of course) with Maxius Velocitus.
Franks with Hilrund the terrible
Huns with Beo; just Beo
Saxons with Eric Redbeard
First season saw Maxius campaign against Redbeard with Redbeard attempting to Raid back. Redbeard is an old warrior ( he has a greybeard now) and he ambushed Maxius in a forest. While Maxius won the campaign point by exiting the board, Redbeard saw his reputation grow by soundly thrashing the Romans.
The second season saw the Romans on the defensive, building their forces to renew their attack against the Saxons. The Huns have decided to raid the Franks. Eric has decided to Raid the Romans again for easy pickings of wealth. While he and his brother are preparing their mission, word comes that Hilrund and the Franks have launched an assault from the east. Never one to delegate, Eric moves east with his heathguard and waits for an opportunity to strike...
Playing a new mission I have developed, Foraging Party.
The populace supports Eric so he is constantly informed of Hilrund's moves.
One day Hilrund dispatches some troops to raid an orchard and pond for food.
Now is the perfect time to strike!
But what is that in the distance? Hoof beats and a horn?!
The melee swirls as does the king's axe. Eventually, overcome by sheer numbers and 18 wounds, Eric goes down for the last time! He has died fighting to protect his people and their lands from the murderous Franks! ( actually he went down easily, the Franks didn't lose a rider.)
As Eric had no adult children and only 2 teenage daughters, his brother, Dangst the Raven takes over. He is called the Raven becauses he brings death to all his foes and had done so for his brother for years. Now he swears vengeance on Hilrund. But first he will finish his brother's raid against the Romans...
Only the second time I have played this scenario. This one played differently but was still close; Franks wining by 1 point till Eric went down. Will playtest it some more than will probably see if Miniature Wargames wants to publish it.
Really like Age of the Wolf. Easy to pick up after a break and breaths life into the characters and campaigns. I have toyed with "Warriors Forward" for a while but now have no need as Age of the Wolf fits the bill nicely.
