Vikings #2


I just haven't had much time to post this month for various reasons, but finally getting one in. I've been painting and have report to write so more things coming when I get more time. These are some of my re-based Vikings that I've been working on for SAGA and Impetus. Vikings are among my favourite periods well actually all dark ages is.:-)  

The figures are all Foundry and the flag is LBM.

Thanks for viewing!:-)

  5. A lot of time and attention to detail must have gone into these, wow what a unit! I love the dusted down effect on the shields, really gives them that rough feeling. This is how Vikings should look, I hope Ragnar is watching and paying attention.

    Cheers,

  6. Yes.
    There is, once again, great to see and astonished these very natural reworked, (almost live) characters, harmonious and resonant colors

  7. Yet another example of top notch painting. The final effect of the blonde haired warriors is particularly effective.

  27. Fantastic Figures, Christopher. We'll have a SAGA competition at the next AttritiCon - If you can make the time it would be great to have you there and to face these ferocious Vikings in Battle (and to send them to Walhalla, of course!)

    Background perfect as well. Is that a reality in scale (modelscene) mat you're using?
    See you in the Challenge, I'll try to keep up with you...
