Draugar - Viking Again-walkers



Zombies are nothing new to us here in Sweden and the Nordic countries. They have been bothering us for more than 1000 years, all the way back to the Viking era and beyond. We call them Draugar, which means ‘Again-walkers’, as this is what they really are. Some of you might also want to name them revenants, but as this article is focused on the Viking mythology, we will stick with the Norse name of Draugar. And they are plentiful, at least in the scenarios in my latest article in WSS-85.


In the article you can read a bit about how I build my Draugar so I thought I would share some work in progress pictures from my build of my 72 Draugar.  In the next blog post i´ll post some WIP pictures of the Draugrdrotten to, so please stay tuned for more;)

    1. Thanks. Indeed those manufacturers, most of the first and last one as GW bits are a bit to big i think.

  10. That's some very cool stuff! Old Norse mythology can really provide some great gaming opportunities, too bad they are a bit underrepresented even here in the Nordic countries gaming circles.

    Can't wait to get my hands on the magazine. Sounds like it will be an interesting read.
