For some time now the men of Rohan have defended the lands from the increasing incursions of Scandinavian invaders. Their blood has been spilled on foreign soil fighting savage northern heathens when they should be back in the Riddermark protecting their own folk from the forces of Saruman. But they are an honorable people and refused to leave the field of battle ere reinforcements arrived.
That time is now.....
I've finally gotten my hands on a couple of boxes of Saxon warriors for my Age of Blood games. I've been playing several scenarios (in between watching massive marathons of Tour de France footage) using my warriors of Rohan to represent the Anglo-Saxons in their struggle to resist the raiding hordes of Norsemen. While the Rohirrim proved to be an acceptable proxy, the games simply did not feel right without proper models on the table. That is soon to be rectified however. Only one more night of cycling before I can get back to painting and hopefully get these brave warriors on the field before the next wave of longships appear on the horizon.
Speaking of the Tour de France, congratulations to Cadel Evans. Well played Aussie. Well played indeed.
