The Game

Blood Rage is a Viking themed board game designed by Eric Lang and published by CoolMiniOrNot in 2015. Each player controls a clan of mythological Vikings seeking glory as Ragnarok approaches. Played in three ages or rounds, Blood Rage features card drafting, battles and territory control via forces represented by sculpted plastic miniatures. All conflicts are resolved through playing cards, and cards are also used to improve and differentiate the different clans and the leaders, warriors, ships and monsters at their command.

I have spent quite some time last year painting these minis for a friends collection. Aside of a few small casting errors and bent spears, the series is well produced and a pleasure to paint. I can only reccomend it.

The project has been financed with a kickstarter campaign and the whole package included many more figures like: a fifth clan (Wildboar), 6 Gods (Loki, Tyr, Frigga, Odin, Heimdall, Thor), 5 Shamans (1 per clan) and several tokens. On top of that there were also kickstarter-exclusives like: Wolfman, Mystic Troll, Mountain Giant and Fenrirwolf.
