Quite a varied selection of clip art, all in good resolution, everything from crowd or street scenes to fanciful illustrations of giants, a pair of jousters, and a forested swamp. Excellent for accent pieces.

A fine clip art suitable for chapter headings, or as accent pieces: illustrations of townsfolk, plate armored mercenaries or soldiers, as well as weapons. All the files are good resolution.

Vintage Stock Art: Ships & Boats Volume 1
by Amanda K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/13/2018 13:10:59

Another great installment to Skirmisher's Vintage Stock Art series. If you're putting together a publication involving ships or boats you'll find this to be an indispensible resource. As always, the images are high resolution although this publication doesn't seem to have multiple copies of the same images in different file formats, so you may need to do a little tinkering with them depending on how you are setting up the documents you use them in.

Ragnarok: Age of Wolves
by Jason A. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/10/2018 23:05:16

Reading through Ragnarok: Age of Wolves was super easy, the flavor and philosophy of Viking battle got me excited to play. Easily the easiest game to set up, the mechanics serve the story and the fun, not points values or complicated sheets, it just has a well layed out creation system for heroes and fighters that you can create your armies from. While the book gives you stats for soldiers and heroes, it also gives you the stats/equipment/info to create your own followers, soldiers, and heroes with abilities like Fire Lash or transformations, spells, and even Runes to affect play.

Combat works in phases, movement, charges, spells and missles, evasion, standard procedure, with easy conflict resolution, and clear dice rolls determining effect/result of actions taken but with a chance for your opponent and you to change up the odds with bonus dice earned in the rolling of wyrd.

This book also includes a lot of options to really feel Northern combat. From burning great halls, to ice covered terrain, the only thing missing were the longboats, and I hope that's be in the next book.

Pick this up and start your own saga soon.

Ragnarok: Age of Wolves
by Tom H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/07/2018 23:06:34

I had the pleasure of play testing this game with its creator while it was in its various stages of development. It is a fast paced, mini-skirmish game with a unique Norse fantasy flavour that is easy to set up and doesn't require a major investment in terrain or figures. You can go as elaborate as you want with your table top for the battle setting, or strip it down to the absolute basics and be ready to play in minutes. Because the rules support any proxy miniatures you choose to use, there is a lot of flexibility on that end as well. If you're on a budget, plastic minis from any tabletop game are suitable, or if you want to satisfy your viking bloodlust a little further, you could skip over to the Baelor Miniatures or Armor Cast online stores and get some nicely sculpted figs. there. Skirmisher also produces a line of nice paper miniatures that would work great as well.

During the many play tests, I didn't feel weighed down by a clunky rules set, and the different Norse themed factions made the playability a lot of fun. I commanded Giants, Trolls, Huldrfolk and Eirik Wyrmson's band of warriors, each with a different style based on their tactical strengths. Each time the game was played using a mix of miniatures from a wide range of brands and this had no negative effect on gameplay. It was nice to see the rules had been structured with this in mind.

The play testing was my first real foray into tabletop miniature wargaming. Being a newbie, finding a rules set that was not intimidating and quickly learned was a good experience. However, there is enough in the way of variety and themes with a new (and old) historical fantasy twist, that experienced wargamers will find plenty to keep them entertained. The Norse setting and use of the unique sounding names flowing from that culture and mythology also lend a sense of realism. The content has obviously been well researched and this helps make the game come alive for players. Particularly, the choice to set the game during the time of the brutal Fimblvintr (a terrible magical winter that will not end, heralding the beginning of the viking Ragnarok apocalypse) struck a chord with me, as it lent a sense of desperate urgency and grittiness to the stories played out on the battle map.

This is an affordable, extremely enjoyable table top war game that will be a fresh experience for long time gamers, as well as a good jumping on point for players new to this kind of hobby. Get it and enjoy.

Ragnarok: Age of Wolves

This is the first wargame I have ever played and it was a blast. It is a very intuitive system and I absolutely love the Wyrd die idea. The concept of it taking place during Ragnarok is also really cool. I cant wait to start playing it in a group. Thanks to Clint Staples and the entire Skirmisher team for making this happen! You should be very proud!

Ragnarok: Age of Wolves
by Christopher C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/07/2018 16:41:31

Ragnarok: Age of Wolves (R:AW) is a skirmish-style miniatures combat game based in nordic mythology. It is designed as few as 10 figures per side to larger battles of 30 per side or more. The rules are well written and Clint goes to great lenghts to make them as clear as possible. There are also ample examples throughout it to help clear up any questions that may arise.

There are a variety of troops detailed ranging from lowly footsoldiers to monstrous Ice Giants. Clint draws deeply from mythology to populate the types of units avaialbe in R:AW. The main thing that seperates R:AW from many other games of this nature is each unit can be customised to create personalised forces for each battle.

To me the shining portion of R:AW is it's magic system, which uses the 24 runes of nordic myth. The runes illustrate not only the flavor of the Ragnarok world but also add more tactical options to it. Each rune has its own special abilities, but may only be used once. Once that rune is used, it's powers leave the field of battle.

Ragnarok: Age of Wolves has plenty of features that will interest new players and experts in the hobby. Well worth picking up.

Ragnarok: Age of Wolves
by tom o. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/07/2018 15:48:45

I have long awaited this release. I played it at Comicpalooza for I think three years. Each year Clint would make another change and for the better. I sincerely suggest that if you like mini gaming and role playing, you would be well served to buy this game and put it to use. The art is great, and it is quality stuff. Skirmisher comes out with some great stuff, but I have waited quite a bit for Ragarok. Well done Clint and Skirmisher!

Ragnarok: Age of Wolves

This is a really fun miniatures skirmish game - the rules are simple enough to pick up quickly, but robust enough that you can play them again and again. You can use whatever kick-ass Viking miniatures you have (or Viking-ish...I know what I'll be doing with some Space Wolf minis I have kicking around.) Also, this book is just plain gorgeous; it is beautfiully laid out and full of informative full-color photographs to illustrate various rules. As more of a visual than text-based learner, I found the photograph examples especially helpful. Can't recommend this enough for any wargamer!

Their Blood Is the Sea
by FJ R. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/02/2018 19:15:15

Not truly an avid fan of the genre, but I am a fan of good writing. And this story delivers.

I was captured right from the first paragraph, immediately and sympathetically drawn to the old seafarer and the main character, Merevec. And then launched across the deck by a remorseless nightmare of a story that doesn’t let up — not even by the last sentence.

The descriptive phrases of sea and battle are precise, tactile, and picturesque. You really feel that you are lurching on that storm-tossed ship. Clint’s knowledge of the era and seafaring really shines through with a brutal realism. You are never left wondering what is going on — you feel the unforgiving environment viscerally so strong is his command of the terminology and his flare for storytelling.

Do you want a rousing adventure with a sinister undertow of sorcery and eldritch horror? Then read this story.

Their Blood Is the Sea
by Tom H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/02/2018 15:03:13

Just read this piece of short fantasy/horror fiction. A nicely crafted tale and just long enough. The author's obvious familiarity with the historical period and nautical terminology comes through strongly. It lends a sense of historical authenticity that pervades the story. This helps give an overall sense of verisimilitude to the setting.

Having done a limited amount of sailing in my youth, I could clearly visualize the action and events. The story achieves what any author hopes for, it gives the reader all five of the senses and therefore places them at the heart of the events.

It also blends two genres very well with some unexpected results; historical fantasy and eldritch horror. For fans of the pulps, all of the essentials are here; a stalwart hero facing seafaring danger and desperate, bloody hand to hand combat in an unforgiving environment as likely to kill as the enemy. Here too you get a mythos style melding of Greek lore and Lovecraft.

This is a great piece of debut short fiction from Clint Staples. Let's hope we see more in future.

Buy and enjoy!

Their Blood Is The Sea is a historical/fantasy by Clint Staples. It is a well written story that exhibits his love not only for fantasy literature but also the deep knowledge he has of history.

It is a short story but one full of depth. His descriptive text is spot on and he does an excellent job of creating relatable characters.

I thouroughly enjoyed the read and am looking forward to more fiction from Clint in the future.
