Vikings, Tiu!

Here are the next trio of “Book Two”s Vikings. As you may have guessed, following the stuff I do en masse, like the chainmail – I tend to paint, and especially complete them in duos and trios based on a similar palette. While it might give these three guys a superficial feeling of being overly red-blue while together, once they’re all mixed in together with the other Viking models, it’s all much more varied.

But yeah, they do look very blue-and-red when presented like this…

And the shields. The one shield that appears to have a Union Flag design on it wasn’t originally planned to appear that way. The pattern I was copying had much narrower white borders and really didn’t have the appearance of the UK flag, but when you’re hand painting onto a tiny 25mm-scale shield, getting those white lines thinner while still remaining distinct is a little difficult. Having completed it, it took enough effort for me to give it the old “ah well, it was tricky enough to do and it looks decent, so it stays!”

    • I’ll get a “shot so far” of these Perry Vikings up shortly. I want to save the next really big photo for when I’ve finished the entire lot of Perry Vikings to add to the original horde.

  1. If I’m not mistaken aren’t these Vikings old lead GW minis from 1985. I have the one in the middle for sure it says on the slota base stand ‘HU5CARL not sure in the first part is a broken letter or an apostrophe ? Do you know what it says or what line it was from? 🙂
