I have always played BATTLELUST for viking skirmish and medieval skirmish,,,is there a better rules set out there for skirmish warfare that is fun???

Pig wars are fast and fun but more oriented to many players. BTW, where can I have a review of battlelust?

Pig Wars is fun. Age of Blood is pretty nifty, and is free. You can get it via the Wargames Journal website.

I think the GW rules for LOTR are actually pretty good, simple and very playable. Can be had very cheaply on ebay too, plus there are lists for dark and medieval ages around on the internet.

Played pig wars and Montjoie. Both are good games but prefer Montjoie.

I've played Pig Wars for years and really enjoy the rules set. blacksmith is correct in his observation about multi-player orientation. It is definitely a more factions the merrier type of game. I've read Strandhogg, but have yet to give it a try. They look very promising.

Battlelust is great for skirmish,i really like it but was looking for something in tune with vikings a bit more,,such as saga combat like pig wars??

And i also really disliked the FNG rules so if its the same system it would probably not work for me,,if not i will order them to check it out.

We have played Pig Wars for years and usually we are three to four players. The games have given us a lot of fun and the outcomes have contributed to a continuing saga. I also think that the LOTR rules are very hard to beat for sword and saga games. If you want more characterisation for your heroes then there are plenty of skills and advances open to them. I have also used the Mordheim rules for sword and shot type games. I ran a game on the three musketeers and the hero attributes and skills portrayed the heroic foursome really well.
