Those of us who are married can laugh at the roaring trumpet, each spouse thinks its a good name (for different reasons) for their partner. ;D

OK, Corey and I have been going at it again.  To be honest, this is almost as much his faction as it is mine now.  We made some major changes to the ability and unit names as well as dumping a few units (Arctic Wolves, Yearlings).  There have been some changes in existing units (Sons of Odin, Frost Giant, Einherjar) and the Dishonored where introduced to replace the Yearlings who basically got rolled into the Warband where they belong.  We also did an overhaul on the command cards.  The updated faction can be seen in the first post of this thread. 

While it wasn't by design, it turns out that this faction contains a few high priced units.  We're fine with that because that promotes replayability because you can never take all of the candy at once.

I'll post the history points for units along with further flavor stuff in the near future.

I wouldn't say that.  I never would've done the faction the way you have.  I would've constantly wrestled with ways to put a new spin on the concept of vikings, and probably never got very far.  I would've never embraced the theme like you have.

For better or for worse, this is your thing....   :P

Hah!  Nice!  I was about 90% done with these guys.  When time allows I need to take them off of ice, so to speak.

The golden age of Fantasy/SF had quite a bit of historically inspired fiction from the Viking era. Poul William Anderson in particular took a lot of inspiration from this theme. I checked these links to a couple of stories that are free to read online and they are still working.

Nice one Ron!  I need to revisit these guys, they've been on ice for way too long.

Was that deliberate?

Hah, nice Ron!

And yes Karasu, that was totally deliberate.  I have kids and hence am cursed with a heavy dose of dad humor.
