SAGA: Northern Fury!

Got this email update from Gripping Beast today - Sweet!

SAGA: Northern Fury Release Date & Pre-order Info!

'Northern Fury' is the first expansion for Tomahawk Studio & Gripping Beast's 'SAGA: Dark Age Skirmishes' and it is now available to pre-order.

'Northern Fury' contains details of four new factions for your SAGA games: the Bretons, the Jomsvikings, the Scots and the Anglo-Saxons. Along with a description of each faction, there are all the rules you need to muster yourself a warband (including new Heroes,) plus of course a brand new Battleboard for each faction. Each of these new factions presents new and interesting challenges, both to command and to face across the table.

Also in 'Northern Fury' is a new, multi-player scenario called 'Wooden Oaths.' Multi-player SAGA games are great for club-nights and bring their own set of challenges and rewards and this scenario is a great way to start if you've never tried multi-player SAGA games before.

'Northern Fury' is 22 pages, full colour and comes with 4 separate card Battleboards and is £12. It is released on 3rd April 2012.

At the same time, we will be releasing new Starter Warband sets for the Anglo-Saxons, Bretons, Jomsvikings & Scots, plus re-enforcement figure packs for the new factions and some new SAGA dice for the Scots. These are also available to pre-order now.
Scot Warlord

As if you needed an incentive, pre-order 'Northern Fury or any of the new 'Northern Fury' based deals now and get a FREE limited edition Scots Warlord sculpted by Bill McThornhill (pictured right, the Warlord that is, not Bill.)

'Northern Fury' will also be available from and distributed by Architects Of War (USA), War & Peace Games (Australia) and Comitatus Figurines (France,) and they will all have a limited stock of the FREE Scot Warlord too!
UK shops can order their stock through our Northstar Military Figures, our UK distributor.
