So I'm looking to get into Saga but I'm sure like most of you I play multiple other games and I'm trying to keep costs to a minimum. I'd love to play the Irish but I really don't know a ton about this time period. I was wondering if the Wargames Factory Celt Warband would work as Dark Ages Irish for Saga. It seems from pictures I've seen most armies use Round Shields and this box would only give around 12 I believe. Could you guys steer this novice in the right direction? Any help would be awesome. Here are the pictures of the Wargames Factory Sprues.

Hi. The body sprues look fine to me, though I would keep any armour for the Warlord or champions!
The shields are wrong though, and some of the helmeted heads just wouldn't work.
Here are Gripping Beasts metal Irish bonnachts....

Another similar supplier is: http://www.warlordgames.com/store/hail- ... riors.html

The new Gripping Beast Dark Age Warriors sprue might be a good alternative. The figures fit the period more generically with round shields, a choice of weaponry and various heads.
Take a look:
