Gripping Beast's Dark Ages miniatures skirmish. Each side has between 25 to 73 miniatures, organised into groups of 4-12 figures. Miniatures are classed as Hearthguard, Warriors, or Levy, and an army comprises of 4 or 6 points of units (1 point = 4 Hearthguard, 8 Warriors, or 12 Levy figures).
Each faction - Anglo-Danish, Viking, Welsh, Norman - has its own battleboard of command options, which are selected depending on the roll of your Saga Dice. Saga Dice have special icons and give your command choices for the turn.
Combat and shooting are simple and based on six-sided dice rolls, the real challenge is to use the options from your battleboard as effectively as possible. The core game comes with a battleboard for the four main factions, with future battleboard releases intended to cover other armies/factions.
