Osprey Games are going to be working with Tim Korklewski to bring Ragnarok to the tabletop soon. This game features 'Heavy Metal Combat In The Viking Age' which sounds seriously awesome to me.

Ragnarok - Osprey Games

This game brings together the Historical and the Fantasy genres into a game where your clan of Viking warriors know what they must do in order to restore order to a world which is drowning in blood and battle. They must become the new gods and restore the Nine Realms!

Ragnarok is a campaign focused skirmish game where you'll take control of your Viking warriors who are seeking to gain that aforementioned glory. A new mechanic called Godspark changes combat up and instead of merely just hitting an opponent and dealing damage you'll also be throwing, pushing and smashing your opponents around the battlefield. Effectively, you're turning the very terrain into another weapon to smite your foes.

As this is a campaign game you'll also grow in power between each battle, coming closer to godhood and winning the respect of the peoples of the realms. From there you can draw on the resources of the dire wolves, Dwarves and Giants of the lands.

The idea here is to tell an epic saga of how your Vikings rose from nothing to become mighty gods in their own right...and it sounds awesome. Maybe this is something to use all those Blood Rage miniatures for when you're not playing the board game?

What do you think of the idea?
