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.

Some new Viking Bondi Finished

I did need some Bondi with my WAB/Swordpoint army of Vikings.  Now I have them, they can double up with some of the Saxons Fyrd models to make a bigger unit when needed.

This group turned out pretty good using left over parts with Gripping Beast's Dark Ages plastic models.
 A bit of conversion to change up the looks of some models.
 The one below uses an arm from Victrix greek kits.
 Sculpted hair on this one.
 I like how this one turned out.
His backside.  I really need to diffuse my lighting more.  The new Nikon is not liking this light setup at all.
 And still more to follow....

Some More Vikings.....Finished

 More of the plastic Gripping Beast variety.  I enjoyed painting these, and I think the came out decent.
This one has an arrow leftover from the Perry medieval archers kit.
 This one sort of has that crazed look about him, with some additional hair that I sculpted on him.

 Another dane axe.  I have more than a handful of these guys now done.
 I'm trying to get a bit more color in the cheeks as well.
That's it for now, more to follow before I take a short break and go back to Romans for a little bit.
