Hail to all,

me and my friends we mainly played 250 to 350 point games.
Now we are planning a 600 point game.
This will be bigger and longer than we are used to.

Any tips or ideas, for composing my Norgaard warband?
Do i take 2 warlords?
do i make the units as big as possible, or 2 or 3 units?

any thoughts?

I'm not entitled to talk about Nordgaard much, but if you ever can you should take two WLs! Wink
Oh, and big units are often very impressive...

Hey,

the rules state you could take the second warlord for games over 500 points - so do it!...:-) You should also read Davids center Stage articles - he compares bigger against smaller units.
For the rest I would say you have to choose your playstyle and then your warband. For such a big game I would defintely take some heavy hitters (Einherjer) and some Fjell Warriors for absorbing charges. Do you know which opponts you are going to have?

I generally just Play for fun, not for absolute victory. If I was making a 600 Point Nordgaard list I would Chose

4 full Units of 10 Kinswords (360 Points)
1 Scarjarl (44)
1 Warsmith (40)
1 Brewer (25)
3 Fjellgangrs (126 Points)


As you can see that's a themed warband, plus the Warsmith because he has awesome tactics.

This is a very offensive warband.

Nothing against Dwarves, I just would love to play this warband :-)

Thorimo's up against my Banebrood horde. After my Wyldfolk warband got a kicking tonight at my FLGS, I'm in the mood to bash some Dwarves. Wink

Ehmm.... David..... yeah, that would be fun... ehmm..... but you DO know that in your proposed warband your warlords are not equipped, not even with a weapon, right?

Now THAT will be fun! Wink

Well. It isn't THAT bad...
The list comes to 595 points.

So the Scarjarl and the Warsmith have to "share" a longsword or a warhammer... Wink
