Eureka Saxons

Last Friday I received my package of Saxons from Eureka. Below are the musicians I plan on turning into a band. In the US Army the band is used for HQ protection but I think I’ll make up some rules to use them as medical evacuation orderlies/prisoner escorts.

Next are some of the Guard Grenadiers. The left figure is a drummer, the right, a standard bearer (of course, you probably didn’t need me to tell you that….) 😉 The flagpole comes separately and is a cast item.

I also ordered officers and NCOs to have the correct organization for a “Charge” style unit for each. They are, from left to right, Gd Grenadier NCO, Gd Grenadier officer, Grenadier NCO, Grenadier officer.

I’ll get pics of the grunts later today.

I have been wargaming as long as I can remember. I met my wife when I was 14 and had been gaming long before that so that should give you an indication as to how long it has been. One of the first games I owned was Anzio by Avalon Hill. I drove over to the hobby shop in the snow to pick it up as I finally had the money to get something! I can remember playing with Airfix figures and Roco tanks back in the 6th grade and before.
