First up the leader of my warband, we have them on larger bases than the rest so they stand out. My son has two men and a Great Dane dog (his idea) but I just had space for this big chap so added a rock to the base.
I wanted him to be extra bright so went a little OTT with the colours but I am OK with that. He is Gripping Beast Viking Hero and as such sold as a single figure.
My original plan was to add this figure to the base, another GBM but one of the plastics and as he would not fit on the base I just slapped him on his own 2p base. So he will have to join one of the units I am building up.
The shield has a Little Big Man transfer on it so is much better than the freehand I have done on the following figures. The detail on the figure is great and I don't see any reason to not use plastics in your forces.
Onto the Black Tree guys and these four slingers will finish off the levy unit I was fielding with only eight figures. These are brighter than the bow troops and look better for it. I do like the Black Tree figures and think they are easily overlooked.
I still have plenty of Black Tree figures prepped and ready to go including about twenty more Vikings so these are not the last of these Danes you will see. These get me 30 points making me over 100 in the first week and ahead of schedule for my target, lets see if I can keep it up.
From Curt: Wonderful work Ian. I think it's great that you and your boy are getting into SAGA together - get them hooked while they're young! I also like how bright these fellows are, in fact I think your warlord could easily moonlight as a superhero with that cloak. :)
These six men of Scandinavia will give Ian 30 points. Well done!
