WIP: First Vikings #5; WIP: 2nd Vikings #2

Well, I've managed to get a reasonable amount done today on both batches of vikings.

Batch 1 (Armoured)

  • Basecoats of hair
  • Highlights of hair (possibly too heavy in places, hopefully washes will tone it down)

Still to do:

Warriors - detailing, drybrush/highlights, add shields, Klear/ink coat, basing
Warlords - a lot more detailing, careful highlighting & shading, Klear/ink coat, basing

Batch 2

  • Primed
  • Weapons and helmets dry-brushed with Gunmetal Grey
  • Spear shafts and axe handles painted
  • Leather jerkins painted
  • Flesh painted

Tomorrow I'll try to get the following done:

  • Boots
  • Breeches
  • Tunics
  • Belts and scabbards
  • Hair (basecoat and highlight) if I have time


  1. Looks good. They're quite a rabble.

  2. Looking very nice Tamsin. Love the grey haired dude, I bet he has seen a fair bit of action.

  3. Working through them nicely, looking good


  4. Cheers guys!

    @ Rodger - There are a few grey-beards in that bunch. They must be exceptionally tough or lucky to have survived long enough to go grey. Let's hope that they live up to that on the battlefield! :)

  5. Looking good, looking good!!!

  6. You are making some great (and fast) progress on those! I'm looking forward to seeing the final results...
