Dark Age Village



In an effort to get my long overdue SAGA project back on track for this Autumn, I've acquired a set of resin 'dark age' village buildings from PMC games via ebay. These come ready painted and include three wattle and daub houses and a rather nice manor house / church building.

I reckon these can also be pushed back a few hundred years and be used for Romano-British structures as well, making them useful for Dux Britanniarum, should that ever get off the ground. I've been re-reading the rules again and love the way they form a mini-campaign of linked battles and raids.

I just have to steal myself to paint up seventy or so 28mm figures to cover both the British and the Saxons! If I can manage to paint up the SAGA Normans  in a month when I get back from France, then DB might be a slightly less daunting prospect for the not too distant future?

  1. Very nice models. I'd like to get a DB set-up one of these days.

  2. I am pretty happy with those PMC games resin prepainted buildings my self...I think I bought like 26 in one shot a few years back.

    Worth every penny in my book.

  3. They look the business Jim.

    I think I'll have a look for PCM games on evil-bay. Do they sell regularly?
