The Fight for Isbran Begins
The Fight for Isbran Begins

The World of Isbran

Isbran, a world of eternal winter. A world where valor and cold steel are worth more than gold. Across the lands of Isbran a perennial war rages between the forces of good and evil. The stalwart orc Templars of the Order of the Ram have stood against the elves, the forever damned. Both sides have committed terrible atrocities during their centuries of struggle. This constant warring has cast a dark shadow over Isbran.   

Now a new threat arises. The Demons of old once banished by the elves have returned. The Demons have enlisted the humans of the Tribes of Mork to aid them in their conquest. Can the Order of the Ram stand against this new threat? Which side will you take?

 The Game

Norsgard is a heroic scale (32mm) skirmish game. Two or more players take control of a small band of warriors, usually between 4 and 10. Norsgard's unique engine allows you to control all the aspects of the action. You control a warriors stances, spells, equipment, and special training. Victory requires planning, action, and sometimes luck.

Once you have mastered fighting a single battle Norsgard's campaign system comes into play. Create your band of warriors and lead them into battle. Survivors earn Experience and Levels allowing them to gain new skills and fighting prowess. Those that have fallen can recover, or return to battle scared mentally or physically. Earn coin to increase your armies numbers or unlock powerful magics.

The Book

The Norsgard rule book is a full color, hard bound, 80+ pages. It includes all the rules needed to play the game. Full army lists for the two starting factions the Scarlet Watch, and the Howling Horde. Detailed equipment, magic, skills and unique injuries for each faction. Rules for campaign play and numerous scenarios are also included. Everything you need to enter the world of Isbran and begin your bloody rise to power.   

The Models

All the models featured here will be high quality, metal castings. Most will be multiple part models that will require assembly. Some of the larger models (the Wolfkin for example) will be cast in resin to reduce weight.

 A limited number of special resin starters are also available for those who are interested. When you choose a resin kit the first Faction Specific Add-On of each type you add to your pledge will also be upgraded to resin at no additional charge. For example if you choose to add two Nifl Guard models to your Resin Templar pledge the first one would be resin, the second would be a standard metal model. But any barbarian models would not be resin.

The Factions

Scarlet Watch

The Orc Paladins of the Order of the Ram have a terrible secret. Once their own fell to darkness and made a pact with the ancient demons and turned to necromancy. These traitors were destroyed but the stain of their sin created the Scarlet Watch. Warriors exposed to the sins of their brothers have been assigned to patrol the cold lonely highways to guard against barbarian hordes, and hopefully to find an honorable death. They are lead by warrior mages, deemed to be trustworthy, but politically inconvenient. These Dark Guard mages lead the fallen brothers in a hopeless quest to bring peace to a land at war.

Howling Horde

The Tribes of Mork are the wildlings and barbarian of the icy north. Now joined in dark ritual with ancient demons they are given new purpose. Though they are human they fight with the ferocity of wild beasts. They live to claim power, and lives to feed their Demons. They also seek to gain mastery over the other tribes. The Howling Horde is the largest of these tribes and their demons are strong. They use fell magic, poisons and sacrifice to achieve their ends. 

Alliance of the Bat

A third faction will be available if certain stretch goals are reached. Once they are unlocked we will reveal more about them.

Unless otherwise stated all Stretch Goals are planned to be Add-Ons. This is being done for three reasons. Norsgard does not require a large number of models to play. In fact it limits the total size of your force. Each model is a highly detailed and unique metal miniature. Finally as a small company we are simply not in a position to give away the store.

 We will be unlocking some special and limited edition art cards for KS backers. These will be included for free to all relevant pledges. Add-Ons are also purchased at a KS exclusive discount and are much lower than retail price.

 Add-Ons selected will not add additional shipping to your order. Simply add the cost of all Add-Ons to your pledge total. When we send out the survey you will have a chance to select your desired models.

Risks and challenges

Why Kickstarter?

We are seeking to bring the book and the miniatures for Norsgard into regular production. The sculpting is done for all the starter set models and the rules are largely completed. We need to raise enough capital to send the models off to be cast and send the book to print.

What are the Risks?

As in any miniature game a large number of factors can come into play. The biggest risk is delay. Especially if the Kickstarter unlocks a ton of new models this can increase the production time considerably. We feel that we have done everything we can to prepare for the launch of this game but delays can and do happen.

Why Support Us?

If you like fantastic models designed to stand out from all the other fantasy games then Norsgard is for you.

If you love the rpg like element of a miniature game that lets you grow your models in power and experience then Norsgard is for you.

If you want to support a small company with big dreams and help us become a gaming leader Norsgard is for you.

If you like personal attention, weekly updates, and the feeling of knowing that the money you contribute is going to create a remarkable and fantastic game Norsgard is for you.
