HAIRY NEW YEAR

What better way to welcome in the new year than with some hairy Vikings. Robin, my oldest lad is Norse mad, and had some boxes of plastic vikings for Christmas (or Yule if you prefer). In preparation, I dug around and managed to muster a motley bunch of 16 Norse raiders to sail with/fight his chaps
Eylief Foul-Fart's warband (a real Viking name!)

I had  a go at some fancy shields, Fenris chasing the sun, and a Salins style II beastie.

It was nice to paint up such a random mix of figures, some of which I have had well over 30 years, and get back into trying a little shading on smaller figures, rather than block painting 54mm chaps. I am looking forward to painting some Lion Rampant medievals, in bite size units of 12 or so.
