Newly Painted Vikings

Yes I have been at it again with the brushes! After seeing Dave and Dan's lovely Viking and Irish figures at the recent Devizes show I was inpsired to paint these fellows.

I have really enjoyed painting them; it's quite some time since I did any 'proper' painting. By that I mean not using the dip. For these I start from a black undercoat and apply a Foundry-esque style three colour process.

Here they are with their shields (LBMS of course!).

A close up.

Another close up.

I hope that these will be start of a Norse/Scots force. All Crusader figures apart from the chap with yellow and black 'raven' style shield - he's a GB Early Saxon!.

Finally ... things on the blog will go quiet for a bit as we'll soon be off for our Summer holidays!

Cheerio

Very nice indeed mate but does Jen know your painting her figures again ;0).

Anyway I hope you and the family have a nice holiday and hopefully i'll see you in September.

Cheers, Steve.

Excellent work, they look great! Viking figures are quite versatile too, every home should have some :-)

Matt,

Nice of you to paint Jenny's figures for her. Although they're so well painted I suspect that the paint job is her work and you did the shields :):):)

Anyway I hope to put them to the sword in the new future.

Have a great holiday.

Phil

Excellent paint job, these Vikings are really impresive!
