… although I do have a figure that represents my dog. He gives a bonus to both morale an melee to units he's attached to.

Yes I am.

No, I consider putting myself in the battle disrespectful to the brave men and women who gave their lives fighting the Eldar in the Emperor's name.

That, and it never occurred to me to try it. 😀

No I'd have to buy a fantasy figure to find one hefty enough (and that is really saying something) and I don't buy fantasy figures.

Yes, I sometimes do this, though I find it affects the play, in that I take steps to protect my figure. Even so, he has been numbered among the slain in several Saga games.

I am wary of committing my Saga berserks to battle. I found that one way to partially counter this is to assign one of the berserks to be one of two or three people at work I really dislike, in which case, I can revel in their demise!

I do that almost always in Sci-Fi and fantasy games. It does change the way you play a bit, no more foolhardy rushes that you just know is going to result in a lot of dice rolling and getting everyone wiped out.

I'm with Darthfozzywig on this one.
