Romano British for Dux Britanniarum
More Romano than British actually. I’d much rather have troops that were a bit more British looking, but I got a good deal on these ones which I got in exchange for a copy of Space Hulk that had been sitting on a shelf un-played for years.
I’ve got enough toys for a force that’s done very well in a campaign, I dream of growing my force to that strength.
(This is a reply to a comment asking how Dux compared to Saga that I have managed to delete somehow.)
I just love Dux, it’s provided some of the best games I’ve had in the past two years. We were playing a lot of Saga at the time Dux came out, I have a Viking force for Saga and an unpainted one of Anglo-Danes. When Dux came out it took over completely and I went out and bought two big forces, the Romano-Brits shown here and my Picts. We have also played Viking games using Dux and put on a demonstration at the National Museum of Scotland when they were running a Viking exhibition in 2012.
To my mind Dux is just as much fun as Saga, if not more. But it’s less abstract and “gamey” and has a much stronger historical feel.
It’s seemed to me that there’s always been a lot of difference for difference’s sake with the factions in Saga. With Dux the forces are still different but it’s all done more subtly and the game seems more historical to me. For example I always had problems with the way that Shield Wall was a super-power for the Vikings in Saga but not available to the Saxons.
They’re both good games though.
I agree, I have been totally pulled into the game. The historical background is fantastic. Gripping Beast fig are great and the pricess are good too.
