Those Vikings need to be taught how to wipe their feet.  They have brought dirt and grass into the ship! :D

Picked up/intercepted my copy at Northstar yesterday. A lovely looking publication. I'm hoping to get the time to sit down and have a read over the holiday weekend.  :D

Just curious for those who have, or have written, the rules - what are the campaign rules like when it comes to models improving? Is there exp etc, or is it a static points cost game? Cheers.

The campaign rules are aimed at providing an episodic 'saga' for your Warbands to play through with a defined overall objective and opportunities for heroic tales and glorious victories. In them, you can replace your losses and add new figures to warbands between games using reputation points you earn in the game. This includes allowing figures to buy options from their Warband's force list.

However, we felt that actually 'character improvement', in which you increase a figure's base stats, was more a roleplaying game attribute than that for a narrative skirmish game.

But we have always encouraged player creativity so, if your wargaming comrades agree, we see no problem in you choosing to spend your hard-earned reputation points to do just that.

Alright, cheers for the answer! If it's not too cheeky, what warbands are already written up in the rules?

Not cheeky at all Gecklian:

Historical
- Franks
- Picts
- Gaels
- Lord Uhtred
- Jomsvikings
- Jarl Ragnar Lodbrok
- Saxon Thegn
- Scandinavian Jarl
- Viking Raiders
- A Welsh Teulu

Legendary
- Draugr
- Jotun
- Svartalf/Sidhe

In addition the points system is open and we encourage people to create their own warbands using it. On the Blog there is now a cost calculator to help you do just that.

Excellent, thanks. I have plans to run a shades and shadows warband, so I'll look in to the creator then, cheers!
