Vikings: Great Hall Burning allows you to adventure during the Viking Age, the period from the late 8th century to the mid-11th century. If you succeed in battle and in your raids, you can raise your Social Standing and gather more men. As your Fame grows you rise in rank until someday, you are King.


In this Kickstarter, Acheson Creations LLC has teamed-up with Two Hour Wargames to bring their new rule book to life on the game table. Acheson has designed all-new 28mm buildings and terrain for accurate, historical wargaming in the Viking era and we’ve commissioned over 50 new 28mm miniatures, hand-sculpted by Company D Miniatures, to give you the player all the options needed to play skirmishes using the rules and ideas found in the pages of Great Hall Burning. In addition to new terrain and buildings, we’ve remastered some of our most popular items from our Medieval catalog.

In Vikings: Great Hall Burning, we’re offering three main options:

Viking Set 1 (MED40) = $100 Pledge!
Viking Set 1 (MED40) = $100 Pledge!

 

Viking Set 2 (MED41) = $100 Pledge!
Viking Set 2 (MED41) = $100 Pledge!

 

Viking Set 3 (MED42) = $200 Pledge!
Viking Set 3 (MED42) = $200 Pledge!

The journey is long, with many twists and turns, but if you keep your eye on the prize, it is attainable. But before you can be King, you’ll have to start at the bottom. Not the very bottom, but close to it. Game on!

We have 12 Stretch Goals we are prepared to add to your pledges when their funding goals are achieved. If you back at either of the $100.00 levels, the overall retail value becomes over $300.00 worth of figures and buildings if all Strech Goals are unlocked! This is an incredible deal for beginners into the Viking Age or those who already have a Viking army and want to expand.

Risks and challenges

Acheson Creations has been in the business of making high-quality tabletop terrain since May 2000. Despite our longevity and experience, we are a small company with limited resources and personnel. If this Kickstarter is successful, it will take some time to hand-pour each and every item (and that's after making every mold). Fortunately, we now consider ourselves to be experienced at successfully running projects such as this and we have tried to account for the labor time involved in our estimated shipping dates. We have shipped all rewards from our previous projects and we're ready to move forward. As you can see from the video and still photos, all our master sculpts are completed as are most of our Stretch Goal miniatures.

- Vikings terrain designed and produced by Craig Acheson (unless noted)
- Vikings miniatures sculpted by Phil Murphy at Company D Miniatures (unless noted)
- All Vikings: Great Hall Burning painted displays provided by Evil Bob's Miniature Painting
- Great Hall Burning Rule Book by 2 Hour Wargames
- Vikings: Great Hall Burning Kickstarter managed by Bryan K. Borgman
