Skaeling is a minor Norscan Tribes faction introduced in Total War: Warhammer. The faction is led by Felman Ingersson and can be found in Norsca, in the northeastern parts of the map.

Background[edit | edit source]

"As the battle raged night upon night, day upon day, the moons turned, and many thousands of marauders and Chaos Warriors were cast wailing into the sea. But Svengar and his fierce warriors paid no regard. Orgulous and grim, he and his men would not give, for they sought glory or death in the eyes of their bloody gods."

--- A quote depicting the ferocity and determination of Skaeling's warriors.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

They currently serve as an early game foe for the Norsca faction led by Wulfrik the Wanderer.

Unlike most minor Norscan Tribes that are on the map at the start of the game, Skaeling can be resurrected by the Warriors of Chaos awakening them if they get wiped out. The Varg is the only other faction that can make that claim, but the Skaeling are even more unique as they are the only faction that can be awakened in two separate provinces: Ice Tooth Mountains or Vanaheim Mountains (though this may have been an oversight and Vanaheim Mountains may have been intended for Bjornling).

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Like Surtha Ek, Felman Ingersson was known for recruiting many chariots and cavalry units into his army.
  • If the Skaeling are wiped out and then brought back by the Warriors of Chaos awakening them, they will not get Felman Ingersson back but instead be led by a random generic lord.
  • Skaeling is currently the only faction along with Lyonesse that is present in all of the following campaigns: The Old World, Mortal Empires and Eye of the Vortex. (I think, can anyone confirm this?)
