more SAGA dice

Well one of the lads at the club has agreed to give the SAGA rules a run out on Thursday. We'll probably start with just a 4 point game as we'll probably spend plenty time thumbing through the rules. For a layout I'm going to use four of the boards from our viking layout that we used at the border reiver show 2 years ago http://scottyswargaming.blogspot.com/2010/09/border-reiver-show-pictures.html. Now this has prompted me to finish off making up some SAGA dice. I've already done some for the welsh (typically my opponent wants to use vikings) so I done 8 for the Anglo-Danes and 4 for the Normans.

Norman dice

A comparison shot between my home made dice and the official ones. Obviously the real things are superior, but you have to pay your money for them at £12.00 for 8. (Obviously I'll be using my viking dice and the others at the club can use the homemade dice until they get their own).

Nice one, always more fun to make things yourself than buy them... did you carve/paint or use stickers?

I use stickers that I downloaded from the SAGA forum

The dice look fine to me!!!! Well worth downloading the images, rather than buying them.
