- 12 Footsore crossbowmen who'll run as levy.
- Fenris Games terrain including a Celtic cross for when I run the Picts as Scots, a Celtic-themed temple floor and rocks with Celtic swirls. I love Fenris' stuff!
- Warlord Games Celtic chariot. I bought this because the Picts can mount their warlord in a chariot and Footsore hasn't yet released their Pict chariot. I loved the energy of the naked warrior so much I decided to make him a warlord. He looks like he's shouting orders to his troops or getting ready to launch himself into combat.
- Footsore war hounds. These huge and wonderful dogs looked so cool I had to paint them up.

Once I start a SAGA warband, I like to paint up all options. And Picts have lots to choose from! Reinforcements from the painting table include:

There's an upcoming day of SAGA organized by Eric Hagen. He puts on the best events including Adepticon's annual US Grand Melee. If he were to organize a "Rock, Paper Scissors," I'd sign up!
This event is for Dark Ages warbands only and that left me scrambling. I'd sold off all my Dark Ages warbands so I decided to paint my Footsore Picts and run them as Scots. This is another reason I love SAGA. Few people can paint up all 30 factions but with a little planning, anyone can paint up a warband that can be played as 2, 3 or more other factions.
Footsore Picts are superb sculpts just as we've come to expect. There is a lot of variety in the figures, faces, and poses. Even with a 48 warrior build, my Picts have a great, massed look. Bonus, Footsore is expanding their Pict line. They recently finished war hounds, cavalry, and crossbowmen. Still to come is a Pict warlord in a chariot!

Here's another drop of new gangs from Great Escape Games. The front row is the Magnificent 7 and behind them, the Malevolent 7. Ranked up, it's a pretty awesome look. The Magnificent 7 will also pair well in a showdown with the Bandito gang.
It's another fine set of figures by Great Escape Games. While clicking through their web store, I saw they had WW II Romanian army figures presorted for Chain of Command. After mulling it over for 5 minutes, I decided Romanians will be my next Bolt Action/Chain of Command army!
I also finished up the Mountain Men set. I love the beardy fellow who looks like he just carved "I kilt a bar" into a tree with his Bowie knife. The Longhorn steer are for in-game color. To round out the bunch, a Buffalo Man and a Mountain Lion who are part of the forces of good in Curse of Dead Man's Hand.
