As for playing them on the table I have had quite a few games so far of varying success. They are a powerful melee force if they can build up 3 points of piety (the mechanism that's used to increase their effectiveness on the table.) The army has some weaknesses though. The brothers are vulnerable to bows and especially crossbows and they dislike being in terrain. The sergeants are there to slog it out in terrain and you have the option of taking crossbows (I'm working on three units of them at the moment) to help with the ranged guys.

What I'm really loving about Saga is that is so easy to collect and paint up a force for it that I'm totally hooked. There are many saga boards that have been created by fans that have been placed up on the Saga forums for people to try and some that have captured my imagination or the Japanese Samurai period. So I've ordered so I've orders some Wargames factory Samurai to have a go at using these board's - they will also work well for legends of the rising sun or Ronin so I figure my money won't be wasted.
- Here are some progress pics of the cavalry that i snapped off during the painting process.

I'll leave you with a final picture of the completed 6 point force.
