Sorry, for the deleted postings. TMP is being TMP.

Looking for a 28mm Viking option other than SAGA (which we enjoy playing). Are there any other good rules people on here enjoy? I am aware that Hail Caesar has a Viking supplement but have not yet tried that one.

Tribal includes Vikings and is a skirmish game.

Pig Wars? link

Lion Rampant is great.

Striker14 Nov 2019 3:20 p.m. PST

Blood Eagle, Battle Troll.

Dux Britanniarum from Too Fat Lardiez is an excellent Dark Ages rule set that includes campaign system.

Henry Martini14 Nov 2019 5:08 p.m. PST

Dux B is for the Arthurian period. You could probably adapt the combat rules easily enough, but the campaign system is very period and ethno-specific.

Lion Rampant works but is very gamey. We gave up on it for our club where games are typically 6-8 players on large tables.

Hail Caesar is for mass battles/big units.

WarSword – a beta I play a lot – works great. Email me for an paly test copy.

I second Pig Wars.

Strandhogg, but they might be kind of hard to find. I think that they are OOP.

SonofThor14 Nov 2019 8:25 p.m. PST

I second Strandhogg!

Third Strandhogg.

Shieldbash. It's fantasy, but a fantasy setting based around the Viking invasion of Britain.

kodiakblair15 Nov 2019 5:19 a.m. PST

Great Hall Burning.

Thank you for all of these suggestions! Much appreciated. I had not heard of most of them before and now there's plenty to investigate.

Karellian Knight15 Nov 2019 6:24 a.m. PST

I'll second Tribal. A leader 2-3 heroes and a few units of five figures gives a good game.

Drone715 Nov 2019 7:33 a.m. PST

Strongsword = fantasy rules but low on magic. Works good for Vikings. Good for tactics.

Lord of the Rings by GW = as above. Good for heroes.

Melee by Steve Jackson. Good all round fun.

Another Pig Wars vote.

Lion Rampant – quick, easy and fun.
