New Mighty Nords Take Shape For Para Bellum’s Conquest

November 14, 2019 by brennon

So, I'm excited. This week we got a proper look at the new releases coming our way for Para Bellum Wargames' Nords faction which will be gracing the battlefields of Conquest soon. We lead with their mighty warrior lords who are fighting on the front lines.

Nords Jarl - Para Bellum Wargames

If you're doing a Nordic force then you need to have a force led by a Jarl. This character looks absolutely amazing and I love the way that they've managed to bring across a lot of the different aspects from the artwork into his sculpt and really focuses in on that idea of their culture being one driven by the sea and using that for their raids. It's weird seeing a Nordic warrior without an axe but the harpoon looks just as cool.

This is followed up with another epic character addition in the form of the Blooded.

Nords Blooded - Para Bellum Wargames

This guy is another ace looking character who has seriously made use of the gym! He has muscles on top of muscles and is about to absolutely cleave someone in twain with that overhand strike which will be shattering shields and sending his foes reeling. Again, I really like the character they've managed to work into the sculpt with the array of masks he has lashed to his belt as trophies and the like.

Wild Wolves

Forming the bulk of your army you're also going to get some great looking line troops. Here we have the Raiders who are your classic bearded and hairy warriors armed with axes and swords, rushing across the battlefield to slaughter your army and then pillage everything that isn't nailed down.

Nords Raiders - Paral Bellum Wargames

This is a rather typical looking addition into the mix when it comes to line troops. That's cool and all but here is where my eyes nearly popped out of my head. Check out this excellent looking set of troops, the Stalkers.

Nords Stalkers - Para Bellum Wargames

These are some rather excellent looking miniatures which take on the role of your ranged troops in-game but with a twist. As well as being armed with their traditional looking bows these wolf-blooded warriors also come with some rather brutal looking bladed weapons too. They seem like a really cool upgrade to the idea of 'scouts' in your games and I like the poses as if they're dashing through the woods hunting their prey.

Bellowing Giants

As well as all of these model reveals we also got the epic Mountain Jotnar who so impressed us when we saw early glimpses of this force at events. Armed with a big ol' tree, this fellow is looking to dispense with the Fe Fi Fo Fum and just batter you to death as soon as he spies you.

Nords Mountain Jotnar - Para Bellum Wargames

Very, very cool. I really like what we're seeing from the Nords in Conquest and I think that Para Bellum Wargames has clearly had a lot of fun playing around with the designs for this force. There is something very familiar about this army but with a few tweaks here and there to make it feel a bit more unique. This is certainly something which Para Bellum has been doing across the board with their forces.

So, with the Hundred Kingdoms, Spires, Dweghom and Nords now on the cards for the game are you tempted to dive into Conquest?
