I had been wanting to add some more characters to my Vikings and along came Saxon Miniatures with their line of figures. The miniatures are some of the best character models that I have seen in a long time and reasonably priced models. Everyone of them is unique in look, is dynamic, and is well posed.
Alot of times when you see miniatures introduced the scale is all wonky and does not work well with where they are directing the focus of the miniature line, in this case in that 28 mm scale for WAB, Hail Caesar, SAGA and other such games. Scale on these however are well done. Below is the Saxon Miniature on the left and one of my Gripping Beast plastic Vikings in a similar pose.
As you can see they fit pretty well together.
Below you see the same miniature, this time alongside of a Foundry viking.

Below are some more of the Vikings, a musician, command model and another Warlord that appears to be in Rus like garb.
Same miniatures below, 1/4 turn.

Below two more of the viking warlords, from left to right: Saxon Miniature, Foundry, Saxon, Gripping Beast Plastic.
Below the 1/4 turn of the Saxon Miniatures.
Below are two more of the viking warlords, this time with one of my converted Wargames Factory models. On these two I used Gripping Beast plastic weapons with the models.
They are very cool looking models, and fit very well with all of the vikings and saxons that I have in my collection. I'm very happy that I rolled the dice and purchased these, and greatly look forward to painting up these models and adding them to my collection. If you are into Vikings, I definitely recommend these.
