Are you seriously implying Warriors of Chaos act like real life vikings?
>>
>>48342963
Is all the hate about the Norse is because they're mainstream now? Stormfags? A pissy /his/ who didn't get enough replies on his viking hate thread? Seriously, can someone tell me why everyone hates Nordic people.

I don't hate them, I personally think they're over used.

Personally, I think it'd be cool to get some Mayan or Aztec themed Halflings that live in the Arctic or some Tibetan Monk themed Dwarves.

It's not hate against the Norse it's hate against their shit caricatures.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't lizardmen vaguely aztec themed?
>>
>>48343637
afaik, that's only WHFB Lizardmen. Nearly all other forms of media have them as generic savage tribesmen for you're PCs to murderhobo their way through.

You people are all retarded faggots. Vikings are not the same as Norse people. The medieval Japanese were not all samurai and ninja. The Turks were not all pirates. The people of ancient Rome were not all Legionaries. American soldiers are not the same as fat American neckbeards who eat at Mcdonald's twice a day and won't wear any article of clothing with fewer than three ketchup stains. HURR DURR I'M SCANDINAVIAN, WATCH ME PROCLAIM MY PROUD VIKING HERITAGE EVEN THOUGH THE VIKINGS ALL FUCKED OFF TO OTHER COUNTRIES AND SETTLED DOWN IN BRITAIN, FRANCE, RUSSIA AND SICILY.

well they raided innocents for 200 years and mostly ran away at the sight of an organised force yet modern media and pop culture portrays them as noble honorable tolerant warriors

Oy vey! We can't admire strength and adventurous spirit in 2016! Those vikings were racist, misogynistic warmongers oppressing the poor POC of Europe.

The mongols did the same thing more succesfully, but I feel pretty confident that your posture would be different if the thread was about them

Now I want to run a game about a bunch of Norse berserkers in French maid dresses, singing their war songs as they clean some rich guy's house.

Because the Norse were a bunch of hyped up failures whose only true achievement was the creation of Normandy by Rollo, with basically every other campaign amounting to nothing. The main thing that happened to Vikings was getting their asses kicked, as they were shit at fighting organized armies and their entire legend is based upon beating up largely defenseless villagers in decentralized post-Rome Europe.

It's like a retarded kid boasting that he's a big fucking deal because he beats up preschoolers. No shit you won- it'd be embarrassing if you didn't. But fighting somebody equal or greater than them leads to Viking ass getting kicked.

Now what the Norse actually achieved was impressive trading missions that went all the way down to Greece and Persia, but does anybody ever talk about the far more exciting and impressive Norse trade missions that spread across the western hemisphere? Noooo. It's just Le viking raider man when in reality the "viking" aspect of Norse history is fucking pathetic.

You want real roving barbarians that BTFO civilization? Sea Peoples. Huns. Goths. Etc.

Aztec themed Halflings were a thing. Lived in Lustria had a boner for canibalism.

It's a shame we know so little about them. Roving Sea Raiders that raided so hard they sent civilization into a dark age? That's fucking metal.
>>
>>48345600
Where's a drawfag when you need one?
>>
>>48345762
Sea Peoples are how you know that somebody was a real barbarian threat. Because they sacked civilization so hard that civilization didn't leave behind records of its existence besides some pictograms.
