Vikings, Átján!

Well, I powered through and finished the last two of my Viking Berserker models. This pair are the banner or standard bearer models from that Wargames Foundry VIK043 Viking Berserker Champions set that I mentioned the other day. As I mentioned my disappointment with the lack of banner poles for either of these models the other day, so these two sat, pushed to the back of the painting table until they were selected for the first Tray, so again with the limited choice helping me with an active “just fucking get them done” mentality with models I’m really not enthused about painting.

The banner poles are brass rod, the end caps are the business end of war picks, cut to shape from the GW Chaos Marauders boxed set. The Wolf Banner was taken from the Don’t Roll a One blog via GIS and the Raven Banner was created by combining a piece of “Viking” style raven art with a “Viking Flag”, both found via image searches and then edited together in Photoshop. I then overpainted much of the detail on both, to get rid of that printed shine, and painted both banners with PVA glue to make them a little more Matt Hardy and then varnished them to finish. Neither are my best work, but they’ll do well enough on the table, and when I have a really good looking Viking banner bearer model, I’ll put much more effort into their Raven (or whatever) Banner.

Since I just finished the other two the other day, it makes sense to have a group shot of the four of them together. I’ve now only got one more Foundry Viking model to go (aside from a few more wacky ones), some models that are essentially Not-Vikings and then there will be a few mroe metal vikings from other manufacturers, and then they’ll all be done. Well, I say all. Then I can start on the boxes of plastics…
