A search online suggests that there are no hard and fast rules for basing Saga minis, but that leaders seem to be on 40mm round bases as a general rule. I was kind of hoping it would be 50mm bases as a, I have some of those, and b, they alow for more space to arrange the figures, but 40mm it shall be.
|Not a round shield.|
On the Standard bearer, I feel the small knife he's holding in his left hand is really out of place. It kind of unbalances the mini, and really, why would you bother with a knife, if you're the standard bearer, you're looking to be holding a shield to get a bit more cover, to at least keep that flag flying, or maybe to cover the chief. I kind of like the idea that he's resting the shield on the ground, but that will mean finding a large shield.
|I like the dragon head.|
As to the diorama, I plan it to be really simple, just a placing of the two minis on the appropriate base once these simple changes are made.
Off to source some local viking shields, or at least plasticard to make my own.
