I give you DC Vertigos Northlanders by Brian Wood, one of the few comic series i still love and read, after all these years.

Its stories are placed between about 850-1300 AD around the North Sea, from Island to Scandinavia, from the Normans to Islands north of Scotland.



Edit: Sadly the series ended recently with issue 50, in the wake of the restructuring of DCs comic lines.

I like Bernard Cornwell's Saxon Stories. They're historical fiction set during the era of Alfred the Great, and they give a pretty good feel for life and warfare during the Anglo-Saxon period. They always put me in the mood for some Hellfrost.

I'd recommend the Strongbow Saga by Judson Roberts. They're intended as Young Adult, but don't let that throw you off. The first book has human sacrifice, murder, and revenge as it's themes, so it fits nicely into the Hellfrost mold.

Very nice picture. The funny thing is, if an artist drew that you'd presume it was imaginary because of the colours and shapes. I love that our world can throw up "strange" things like this Very Happy

Just saw the movie "Outlander". http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0462465/
Ignore the Spaceships/OtherWorld aspects and you find yourself in a Saxa village fighting against "dragons".....
Me and my wife both went, "oh yea, thats how it could look like!"

Already done that as an "inland" variation of the oar running rules from the Saxa Fun freebie. Was a tough competition that one of my heroes only won because some lucky dice rolls (and unlucky ones by me) and a few bennies.

It was fun for all...

Very Happy
