The newest Viking Unit!

 I really love these big unit shots.  They are always fun with a movement tray that helps with conveying the story.
If you have been following along, you have seen all of these guys as individuals.  Now you see them assembled.
 Obviously there are a variety of manufacturers in this:  Gripping Beast, Foundry, War Factory Games, Warlord Games and Saxon Miniatures.

There you are.  Hope you enjoyed the journey.....onto more miniatures.

War Factory Games Vikings....

 I'm not sure what has happened to War Factory games, they may have been acquired.  These are conversions of their Viking kit using a variety of parts.
 I needed a few more dane axe guys, so these fit the bill.
Striped pants are always fun, and I'm happy with this shield.
So next up is the big unit shot.  Yep enough models for another unit.

First of the Saxon Miniatures models

 This is one of the metal Viking warlords from Saxon Miniatures.  I really like these miniatures and have a couple of batches of them, both of the Viking and Saxon variety.
 This is a fun pose from the front.  I tried a little bit of freehand on the shield.
I have a couple more of this figure and will end up converting them.

Next batch of GB Vikings....

The one above is sporting a Games Workshop Empire fanatic head.
Another dane axe guy.

 This one below is pretty much standard except for the added hair.

Another below with a GW head.

 This one has a cape from the Templar Fireforge kit that I added fur to.

More converted Warlord Vikings

This batch is utilizing the converted Warlord Games barbarians converted using Gripping Beast Plastic parts.
These always make very dynamic miniatures.  They have very good movement.  I actually think they make better Vikings than they do Celts.
Arrow left over from a Perry Bros kit.

 Really like how this guy turned out.

 This is another that makes an easy but good looking conversion.

More Foundry Vikings...Finished

These are part of my rank and file Viking army. I really like these old metal miniatures from Foundry.  They have a lot of character and I'm adding a huge batch of them.

 This one has a pretty awesome shield.

I think the cape turned out pretty good.
Hold on to that doggy.

This is the second time I have painted this one.  So I have changed the color scheme.
Went with this burnt orange cape.
