Gripping Beast has the expansion to their Saga: Dark Age Skirmishes game all lined up. Plus, if you pre-order you get a cool fig. Why not go and do that now?

From the announcement:

‘Northern Fury’ is the first expansion for Tomahawk Studio & Gripping Beast’s ‘SAGA: Dark Age Skirmishes’ and it is now available to pre-order.

‘Northern Fury’ contains details of four new factions for your SAGA games: the Bretons, the Jomsvikings, the Scots and the Anglo-Saxons. Along with a description of each faction, there are all the rules you need to muster yourself a warband (including new Heroes,) plus of course a brand new Battleboard for each faction. Each of these new factions presents new and interesting challenges, both to command and to face across the table.

Also in ‘Northern Fury’ is a new, multi-player scenario called ‘Wooden Oaths.’ Multi-player SAGA games are great for club-nights and bring their own set of challenges and rewards and this scenario is a great way to start if you’ve never tried multi-player SAGA games before.
‘Northern Fury’ is 22 pages, full colour and comes with 4 separate card Battleboards and is £12. It is released on 3rd April 2012.
At the same time, Gripping Beast will be releasing new Starter Warband sets for the Anglo-Saxons, Bretons, Jomsvikings & Scots, plus re-enforcement figure packs for the new factions and some new SAGA dice for the Scots. These are available to pre-order now.
Pre-Order ‘Northern Fury or any of the new ‘Northern Fury’ based deals from Gripping Beast and get a FREE limited edition Scots Warlord sculpted by Bill McThornhill.

    Where can I even find the rulebook (just the rulebook) to buy for this game?

    They do have one of the worst examples of “British Web Design” out there today. Probably 10 years behind the rest of the world. I think most Somali Warlord Pirates have better websites. LOL.

    The rulebook: http://www.grippingbeast.com/product.php?ItemID=268441467

    I love this game, and am ordering the new book with the Scots and dice! Scots Wha Hae!

    Yeah, for a while that entry wasn’t on their webstore. Thanks!

    If you’re in the states, try http://www.architectsofwar.com/sagarulebook.aspx instead. I bought my copy last week, and total time from ordering to delivery was three days. I’m truly looking forward to getting a few games of Saga in soon. The game pushes all the right buttons for me.

  • Dan you can get the book from Conquest Miniatures who is local to you.
