    That's part of the Chronicle of Nurn Shieldbreaker and details the tribes who came through the Blackfire Pass. I'm talking about the Chronicle by Dread Yngvar Iovarsson, which states that the Norsii, Ungol, Friking, and Roppsmenn migration predates the Blackfire Pass migration by 20 years.

    I don't know about the Norsii being related to the Kurgan. Modern Norscans and Kurgan have probably mixed, due to mutual raiding, trade networks, intermarriages, etc., but the description of how the Norsii and Kurgan encountered each other in the Legend of Sigmar novel made it seem as if the two had very little prior contact before the Norsii founded Norsca.
