To the Norse, the fields of southern Britain were a fertile and temperate land. They knew the cities of these people contained much wealth and gold. The Norse invaded with their shallow draft longboats, plundering the villages and taking all they could. The Norse fought in animal skins and padded leather armor with heavy two-handed axes and swords.
These two ancient and mighty cultures met on the battlefields in many encounters. When they did, they both beat their shields and bellowed in a loud and thunderous roar. The skies darkened, and the lightning cracked as the two sides raced on foot toward the other. When they met, their swords and spears hit home, slashing flesh and cracking bone. The horrific screams of the warriors! The earth turned red with the blood of the fallen! The epic battles of the Norse and the Belgae!
The board itself is formed by master woodworkers and stained in light and dark varnishes. It hinges in the middle to form a box to hold the miniatures. The game is portable and small enough to play on the subway, a board room presentation, or your next customer meeting.
Miniatures rules sets are available for use with these figures. Adapt them for use on the checker board, or use the Britannia Checkers miniatures in your next table top miniatures battle. Rules sets (in 5 volumes) are available for as little at $119.95.

Your friends too will amaze at all the furious battle enactments that can be made with this set.

At the rate I am painting, it will take another 2 years before the game is
complete, but what the heck, time is what hobbies are for.
