Vikings blooded

The Vikings had their first outing today: you can read the battle report here.

It feels a bit odd to be playing with figures that you haven't painted yourself - it's hard to feel a sense of attachment to them, since they were bought off eBay. One thought in retrospect though - perhaps this detachment is beneficial, since it prevents you from having a "favourite" unit or base. After all, our tactical decisions on the gaming table might be clouded by the emotional attachment we have to, for example, a base of figures that we spent extra effort in painting up. The scythed chariots in my 20mm WAB Persian army were something like that - horrible track record, and very little value for money, yet I kept fielding them.

Something to think about.
