SAGA is designed as a skirmish game and thus played with single based figures. This was one of the main attractions for me to try SAGA in the first place. It gives me the opportunity to paint a managable number of 28mm figures and actually have a chance to complete a warband for play.
As I am visiting a friend who has many 15mm figures for DBMM. We wanted to give SAGA a trial and thus chose Japanese SAGA. We found the appropriate battle boards on the excellent blog of the Kurpfalz Feldherren.
