I indeed am, as will my friend who loves Vikings. That's the main reason I'm looking in to this. With such a low cost for entry seems a shame not to really.

Yet more questions, sorry! The book likely won't arrive for a bit due to Easter etc, but I already have models being prepped, based and base coated. As such we were wondering, how many points is a typical game?

Of course, if you are in need of any information regarding Finns from the Blood Eagle period, factual or myth, I am more than happy to help for the cause :)

Funny you should say that...

I have just uploaded an article to the Blood Eagle blog on how to create your very own original Warbands. So if you wanted to do a Finnish Warband this will show you how. You can find the article here: https://bloodeagleskirmish.wordpress.com/2016/03/27/creating-your-own-warband/

As part of the article, we created a new Warband not in the book - the Wends. So, two freebies in one :)

Now I'm torn between buying the book now, or waiting until I've given it a go at Salute.

Lots to buy t=with the Perry/Snook Cape Wars caper up and coming, not to mention the plastic Brits and Afghans......

Will get around to buying a copy or failing that trying to persuade someone at the club to buy a copy soon!

So, where will this be available from? Besides Northstar.

Brigade Games? Amazon?

Hi Eric,

Quite a few of the wargames retailers will have it, including Brigade in the USA.

It will never be on Amazon as it does not have an ISBN number and because that company will discount your books to below the cost of production without asking you first. They did this to IHMN, dropping if from 11.99 to 1.99 and completely undermined sales at normal retailers.

Thanks.

Still awaiting delivery, but I think this should prove handy.
Ask at the LAF, and answer shall thy be given!
