Zvezda 8046 Vikings Part 2

After Part 1 it's time for Part 2. This time I've painted one figure of each pose. I bought this figures as a bargain. The seller told me it were 3 complete sets, but not on the sprues. I could have them for the price of one set. But when I started painting these guys, I realized that there was missing one pose. One of the archers wasn't in the box. I placed a litle message on Benno's Figures Forum that I was searching for that figure. And Gunnar from Gataskog sended me one. Thanks for that mate!

I've painted them with black and white, and some brown colors. I wanted them to look very dark, so they would be more suiteble for a fantasy dio (not right now!). And I love the black and white with a little bit of silver on the shields very much. Shading on the shields is Vallejo Grey Wash.

Just have a look at the pictures, and enjoy them!

Archers. The one on the left calls Gunnar!


Axes.


Command.



Spears.


Swords.


I hope you like them!

    1. The flag was tricky. It isn't that well sculpted. Thanks Pascal!

    1. These are superb. I like the restricted palette. The figures still look rich and vibrant in the well chosen colours you used.
      Cheers, Richard
