So, any active historical game systems with its own model range that has a viking faction around?
I prefer 10-15mm but if there are no game systems in that range then 28mm is ok. dosent matter if the game is army or skirmish style.
The good thing about historicals is that they're model manufacturer-neutral.
You can get very good 15mm vikings from Essex, Baueda, Peter Pig, Splintered light or Khurasan plus many others (last two are my fav, btw
). Mix and match as you want (except PP
, they're noticeable smaller than the rest).
Rules? FoG and DBMM are solid choices, you should have no problem finding opponents for them. Someone mentioned Hail Caesar, which is a great game also and since stand frontage is the only thing that matters you can transport it to 15mm as well.
Actually you can just base your vikings and play all those rulesets and find the one that you and your group fancy the most.
SAGA is a nice little skirmish game in 28mm., very cinematic. Would also try.
