Here’s another couple of guys I painted up last week. My photographing has trouble keeping up with my painting, as always, so these guys have been waiting for a few days.
As I might have mentioned earlier, this is a single unit of mercenary vikings intended for use in Hail Caesar, as a separate division with its own commander. The unit will be sixteen strong, which also translates into four points of Hearthguard in Saga – I’ve been playing on and off as Pagan Rus using my existing Viking warband, so having some Eastern-looking models will come in handy for that too.
It’s my second time round painting some of these models – last year I painted a complete Jomsviking warband for a friend and I absolutely loved the models, so I didn’t need much convincing when I chose these! I gave mine a bit of a unified theme unlike the other models in my army, as I wanted the unit to look internally cohesive. There’s eight more guys plus the warlord coming up, although one of my other Jomsviking blisters was mispackaged and will need to be swapped at Salute.
That’s it for now! There’s Dacian and Crusader goodness coming later this week, so stay tuned!
