    Are Nordic People More Warlike and Tough?

    When Sicily was threatened from Berbers and Saracens, the Sicilians took Norman help.
    When Brythons were threatened from Vikings, they called for Anglo-Saxons
    When French were threatened (from Vikings), they turned to Normans

    Or is it, that Christianization pussified men of Europe
    And the Germanic and Nordic Peoples were still per-dominantly Pagan,
    which brought out their fighting capabilities?

    Or was their great stature an asset in fighting wars?

    I think the summoning of Germanic help you mention has more to do with dominant tribes that were easily accessible and knowledgable towards said foes for those time periods.

    Christianity no doubt with its "turn the other cheek/forgiveness" riff raff
    has allot to do with the feminization of the modern Nordic.

    But where the Nordics especially the Nordids great warriors? you bet.
    The Vikings were used as mercenaries in the middle east. Blonde haired blue eyes and northern steel put fear in those who dared them.

    I would fear a Borreby or Faelid more than a Nordid in melee to be honest.
    Red hair strikes more fear as well

    Hey I think Agrippa clarified in a previous post that slender frames (only compared to the hulking borreby) of Nordics in no way diminish their fighting abilities
    And how Achilles defeated that brute of a man (Nathan Jones, I think)
    Achilles a Faelid (with a dominant nordic component) VS Nathan (Borreby)

    Sure. But imagine it coming down to grappling/glima. The bigger one would indeed have the upper-hand.

    You are talking about a movie, not fact.

    Also, nordic does not mean nordid.

    Being bigger means you have more mass but may fatigue faster because you would try to immediately utilize brute force. If the Nordid survives the assault
    the bigger one dies in his own blood and broken bones.

    If the Nordid is very clever as he usually is, he would sprint for his busty blonde neighbor and assault the senses of the hulk. Then proceed for the kill
    as his enemy is in a daze.

    Yes but in Medieval wars, brute strength(pushing), skill and bloodlust came in handy
    Wrestling was rare on battlefield, methinks

    Please don't turn this into another "nordicist" thread.

    If the bigger person is fit, he would NOT fatigue faster than a nordid

    All nordics are equal in my book. But the bigger ones get an upper hand in melee (if you use your head, it is quite logical)

    Nordics would become Swordsmen, Archers and Cavalry
    Borrebies could become Spearmen, Armoured Infantry and Skirmishers

    And when did Borrebys stop being nordic? (or in fact nordish if they hail from a non-nordic country)

    Swordsmen were armoured, seeing as you had to have money to own a sword, you would also own armour.
