Jumped on the SAGA bandwagon years after everyone else, still waiting for my order from Wayland Games though...
In the meantime I painted up the Ragnar Lothbrok miniature from Hasslefree to be used as a Viking Warlord for SAGA, more pictures on my blog:

Love the base idea! I may have to try that. You are not the only one late to the Saga party. I have an entire 6+ point Anglo-Saxon forced prepped, based, and primed ready to paint sitting in my cabinet. Some how I seem paralyzed to jump into the painting. I guess I am a bit boggled by trying to figure out period and unit appropriate paint schemes.

Nice job on Ragnar! I'm curious how many minutes did you spend on him?

Thanks PrivateSnafu,

Painting took a couple of hours, didn't count but somehwere around 3-4 hours.
The interest for the game was sparked by the TV show but also the weird occurance of a lot of players in my community suddenly picking up and playing the game again or starting fresh.
Wish the same sort of revival/interest could be seen with Muskets & Tomahawks which I think is a fantastic game but one that only one other friend owns and we rarely get to play :(
Should be easier to get SAGA games played .

Second one out of the two Hasslefree Miniatures I ordered to spice up my upcoming SAGA viking warband. I found this model to be painfully difficult to paint due to the sculpting on the skirt and the face in particular. Not super happy about the paintjob as a whole, but it will probably look good alongside 7 other viking miniatures.

A couple more pictures can be seen on my blog

Just recently received most of my SAGA collection that I sent off to a very talented painted in Germany due to lack of time and energy to paint them myself. Very pleased with the result, and combined with the Hearthguards and Warlords I had painted up previously I now own a pretty decent Viking collection ready to be put to use in SAGA among other games of that period.

More pictures on my blog.
