Valhalla Dark Age Skirmish Game

The Battlefield
Greetings all
I have posted some pictures of the game Valhalla I recently played.

The game was played with 5 players, 3 Viking, 2 Saxon.
We each had 3 benches each of 3-4 figs.

The Viking benches were made up of Seasoned Warriors and Trained Warriors 50/50 plus 1 Warlord each.

The Saxons had Seasoned, Trained and Militia plus 1 Warlord each.
Saxons move towards enemy

The scenario called for the Vikings to sack the village take slaves and capture livestock.
The Saxons defend the village and kill the raiders.

Turn 1
Vikings land the long ship and dismount and move towards the Village,
Saxon do not move as they cannot see anything.
 Turn 2
Vikings move towards village at full speed.
Saxons still do not move cannot see anything.
Turn 3
A Saxon child at the end of the Village with his sheep
see the raiders a calls the alarm.
The Vikings still move at full speed toward the
Village, at this point a Berserker loses control and runs towards the village. 
Women and children and priest run
 Turn 4
Vikings hit the Village and start killing.
Saxons try to guard the village.
Turn 5
Turn 6
More of the same, one Saxon Warrior kills 3 vikings in one turn the dies.
Turn 7
 Its the end for the Saxons 1 Trained Warrior left and he does a runner, Vikings take Village game over.
Valhalla is a good system i like it better than Sarga

Good game all the Guys liked it too.

  1. Exciting game. I was basing up my few Viking figures last night in preparation for painting....must get some Saxons soon, I think Drabant make some very nice figures.
    I've not tried Saga, but the £25 price tag plus extras puts me off.

  2. Hi,
    Most of the figures i used come from the 3 box's of gripping beast plastic's. The metal figures are Foundy,Gripping Beast. Have not tried the Drabant but they look nice.
