Suplemento para SAGA – Aetius&Artorius

Suplemento para SAGA – Aetius&Artorius

Hace unos meses los chicos de Proyecto Cruz nos trajeron traducido al castellano el juego SAGA, convirtiendo el sueño de muchos en realidad. Y para alegría nuestra, ahora nos traen la nueva expansión de nuevo castellano para ambientar nuestras partidas de SAGA en la época artúrica: SAGA – Aetius&Artorius. El nuevo libro, encuadernado con pastas duras y una maquetación exquisita, incluye los battleboard y las reglas de seis nuevas facciones con las que representar los conflictos de la época: Romanos (tardíos), Britanos, Sajones, Pictos, Hunos y Godos. Además, la segunda parte del libro recoge varias actualizaciones de bandas que aparecieron en el libro SAGA: La Edad de los Vikingos, para que podamos usarlas en batallas de la “Edad de las Invasiones”; junto a varias unidades de mercenarios que podremos añadir a nuestros ejércitos. Finalmente, el libro se cierra con cuatro nuevos escenarios y una campaña para dos jugadores donde un solitario puesto fronterizo tiene que rechazar hordas de asaltantes bárbaros. Como colofón, han incluido en el manual una hoja de referencia rápida suelta que nos será muy útil durante nuestras partidas; y por si fuera poco, ¡una miniatura gratis! Para poder usar este libro necesitaremos tener el primer libro de SAGA en nuestras manos. Interesantemente, en el interior se menciona que si queremos podremos utilizar las nuevas bandas para luchar contra cualquiera de las q ue han sido previamente publicadas, si bien nos advierten de que pueden haber ciertos problemas de balanceo. Por otro lado, destacar que los mercenarios suponen “mini-facciones” de donde podemos reclutar ciertas unidades por el coste de 1 punto al comienzo del juego. Es una...

How to paint shields in 15mm

How to paint shields in 15mm

We can always use decals or transfers instead of painting our shields with a brush. However, hand painted shields are always more impressive!. And it is very easy to do them. Although the previous picture presents a Gaul horde, in this tutorial (inspired by an article published in Wargames: Soldados y Estrategia nº14, by El Mercenario), I will show how to paint Roman shields with a easy symbol. Anyway, the base is the same in all cases. An these miniatures are from Forged in Battle, who are going to start a new Kickstarter to create a new range of Ancient miniatures. First, we have to paint the whole shield in a specific color. In this case, red, although there is a little controversy about this (we can find representations with white, blue or green shields!). Anyway, I love the red color in the Roman army. Therefore, I start using Cavalry brown (982, Vallejo), and then I apply lights with flat red on extremes (so the central area will be darker). We can apply a final light,  mixing red with a little white. Then we can start painting the base or siluete of our symbol / draw. In this case, some kind of wings or similar. So, first we paint the silhouette with Beige brown (875, Vallejo). It’s recomendable to use a sharp brush!. Indeed I use a Winsor&Newton series 7, number 1. Now we can start painting the details of our symbol. So, to represent these Roman wings we can use Golden brown (877, Vallejo) and we can follow three steps: We paint an horizontal line in each wing (as...
