For those who have played with or against, what is a good list for Saracens ?
So far I have just assembled what I have, 1 x hearthguard with spears and 1 x with bows. 1 x warriors with spears and again same with bows and Saladin has just arrived to lead them.
To expand up to 6 points what else should I take or should I change what I have to include more or less of a particular type?

I know you are not going to like this: cavalry. The big difference between c+c and dark ages rulebooks is the proliferation of cavalry in the crusades.

If memory serves are your archers levies (×12)?

Cavalry is ok, I will just get more.  If I dont glue the guys on maybe I can swap around.  
The levies on their website are bows, quite fancy getting some cannon fodder or should that be pincushions as cannons were not around much 🙂

I think the bows are levies. Certainly useful but not in a 4 point game. They don't generate Saga dice but are useful.

Now I have managed to acquire 7 points of Irish.  
If I work on a 6 pt list,  2 hearthguard, 3 warriors and 1 levy ?  change 1 heartguard into a Curraidh from each unit to run separate and make the H/G into unit of 6 ?

I'd love to help, but I don't have the rules for the Irish.

you can make 1 curraidh (champion) from your hearthguard but that would only leave you 3 in the unit, so I think you have to take 2 units to at least make it legal.  just wondering in a 6 pts game would you take 3 warriors and a levy ?
