Varjazi & Basileus is a full colour mini supplemnt for the SAGA rules and is the last one to cover the factions of the Viking Age. Contained within are all the rules and background for three new factions, one of which, the Byzantines, has already been the subject of a article in a Wargames illustrated magazine. The other two are the Rus Pagan and their successors, the Era of The Princes Rus. Also included are a new Swords For Hire unit, the dreaded Steppe Nomads, who can be in the pay for all three of these factions, and a new Hero Of The Viking Age for the Byzantines, Harald Hardradda, Captain Of The Varangian Guard.
Please note - this edition DOES NOT include the folder that came with the original printing and as a result is cheaper. Appart from the folder, the book and Battle Boards are the same as the original printing. There is reference to the folder on the back-cover of this book and this is left over from the original printing.
Contains rules and Battle Boards for the Pagan Rus, Era Of The Princes Rus and Byzantines.
The Byzantines are an updated version of the official SAGA article that first appeared in Wargames Illustrated.
You will need a copy of the SAGA Rulebook to make full use of Varjazi & Basileus.
