The Saga of Sven Arriksson : a blood eagle adventure

I have been thinking of a new adventure series to play some more Dark age games and get a bit more into Blood Eagle. Effectively what I needed was a framework to allow lots of smaller skirmish games to develop, this would encourage me to paint a few more of the dark age figures I have waiting and get me into Blood Eagle. What better then than a Norse invasion of our very own Cumbria. The Saga begins.............

Sven has landed near one of the small villages, which would many years later be known as Silloth on the Solway coast with his trusty retinue.


The Village forms part of the marshlands controlled by a series of  Eorls and local Thegns. One amongst these is Boerwald of the Marsh.


To be continued........
