Viking heroes

The last figures from my latest commission.
Time to go a-viking
Right, let's leave.
Errr, I think the boats are this way.
Geoff gave me a transfer for the shield, but I once again proved I have no idea how to use Little Big Men transfers. I just wish they made waterslide transfers like normal people. Obviously semi-competent people can use them to great effect, but for those of us who don't make it into that category they remain an enigma. Anyway, the upshot is that I had to paint the shield design by hand. I hope that Geoff is OK with it.

  1. Nice sculpts, and very nicely painted. I can't use LBM transfers either. A one step process is hard enough, I made a total mess out of my attempt at theirs! I'd be pretty happy with the hand-painted shield though, very cool :-)

  2. Thanks Paul. Glad I'm not the only one who can't cope with modern new fangled technology! But to be honest I quite enjoy painting shield patterns.

    1. Thanks Michael. I have to admit the designs were taken from example on the Gripping Beast site, but I couldn't leave them off the model.
