The battle of Hafrsfjord and the Liberation of Norway 8th May 1945 
I was lucky to have a trip to Norway in June on the first day of our trip a visit to Stavanger
included the Hafrsfjord site Just to give you a size of the swords I placed the wife next to them
 ( well if they fell over I would not be in the way )
Bergen my Dad served on HMS Woolston and in 1945 was one of the first ships in to Bergen to take the German surrender .
 
 
 


Im told the stones mark the places of the route of the first King of Norway's wife when she died  and put down as she was carried to her final resting place

25/28mm Saga Saxon/Danes

25/28mm Saga Saxon/Danes
Been playing Saga for a few years now not to competition standard with my friends at W.A.R.
most nights we manage to get in 2 or 3 games.
Over the years I have been asked to put on some demo games at the Winnersh Fete ( this is the hall W.A.R. has it club night). Like all fete you need to put on a show large battle .

Saga comes in to mind but with only a few figures on the table on both sides not much of a special.
With that in mine we can up with the idea of making the units double or treble the size.
Played a few game like it much more like a wargame than a skirmish game .
Has any body else try it ?  Lots of dice to throw and figures to lose .
Figures are in the main from Elite Wargames and Models https://elitewargamesandmodels.com/
 and 30 archers are Gripping Beast plastic ones.
