This Kickstarter has 21 days to go. Do you need vikings? If so, this is the Kickstarter for you! It starts out with Vikings… Imagine the scene from The Matrix when he gets “guns, lots of guns” but instead of guns, you get viking miniatures. That is what the core of this Kickstarter is. The first stretchgoal has been reached, an incredible looking Fire Jotnar. there are also some longhouses and barricades unlocked. Also, as part of the core rewards is a great looking longship and an encampment full of scatter terrain.
