Yes we will be using version 2. Will need core rule book plus Viking Age supplement.
Games Played (Armies): WAB + WaC (IER Roman, Early Saxons and variants, Normans), WFB (Empire), 40K (Spacemarines), Uncharted Seas (Empire, Shroud Mages), WAB English Civil War (English!), Operation Squad (British) SAGA (Normans, Jomsvikings), Mordheim, Wings of War/Glory WWI, Dreadball, Chain of Command (British), Frostgrave, Sails of Glory and many others!!

As I mentioned in the discussion last night, I would definitely be interested in doing a campaign. I think it might be fun to have some sort of territorial control map or the like and if you win a battle/raid, you could get control of the territory which would add a point to your army or allow you to take a mercenary unit from that territories army list perhaps. We would have to work out details to ensure some balance, etc., but I think that would add some depth and enjoyability vs. just doing a round robin type tournament or something.

Grahame

Count me in - I agree about territory and using a map for this campaign and basing it in Britain.

I think I have found a suitable map, will try to print it off to share.

Proposed Saga campaign.

More details to follow.

Suggest limiting to Viking age, and located in the British Isles and near continent.

So no Romans or Rus Princes.

Anyone interested?

Looking to start in March depending on which week it is alloted and run for 6 months.

There will be a map, and territories will be allotted once we know all players.

We will also be using the Saga Book of Battles for additional material.

All games will be 6 points basic.

A base warband will need to be of 6 points, no Legendary Heroes or Units, No Mercenaries, no Swords for Hire.

However War Banners, Bards, Priests and Personal Champions are allowed.

Relics and Artefacts cannot be taken, but these will be awarded as rewards to successful Warlords.

We will be tracking success in the campaign, using Warlord Experience, which will be a modified version of that in the Book of Battles.

As the campaign proceeds, Swords for Hire, and Legendary Units will also become available as rewards.

Other than any rewards, the Warband cannot vary in composition from the base Warband.

To allow for some flexibility, please create a list of 8 points of units from which you can select 6 for each game.

This list need only show what unit type is selected. Actual equipment selection can be done on the day, including (but not exclusively), Mounted/Unmounted, Heavy Weapons, Crossbows, Bow/Spear, where options exist for a unit in the relevant list.

Also as well as rewards for success, there will be penalties for failure which may reduce your ability to select units, or equipment in successive games.

For example units may not be available, or weapon options will be restricted if units have suffered badly.

Rules for this are still to be codified!

So if you are interested please add to this Topic.

There is probably space for between 6 and 12 players.

Note games will not need to be played on the specific date, and opponents and senario will be announced in advance.

Since equipment selection can vary from game to game, presumably this means unit sizes don't have to be the same for each game?

Yes unit size can also be decided on the day, as long as the unit is allowed by the rules.
