Vikings!!!!

Some special miniatures that I just finished for my friend Barrie - VIKINGS!!!
These are 28mm metal miniatures from Stronghold Terrain . There are still 2 more shield maidens to be completed, and they are well underway. It seems that a number of the sculpts are based on the "Vikings" TV show, which I have never seen myself, apart from some stills online. Barrie said I had a freehand with 'em anyway, and didn't have to stick with costumes/appearance from the show.

I actually finished them last Saturday, and have sprayed them with Dullcoat & taken pictures today. I needed a wee break from a 20mm commission I'm doing, as those little fellas can give my brush hand a bit of cramp - need to mix up my activities.

I had a lot of fun painting these figures, helped by the good quality of the sculpts. It was a nice change to do some basing for Barrie too - note the ivy on the shipbuilder's base, I figured he looked creepy, so some creeper was appropriate :-)













All the best,

John.

    1. Thank you good sir!
      From the few pictures I've seen from the show, these sculpts are really well done depictions of the characters.
