AdamC - Dark Age Warriors (36 points)


 Now we have 6 more 28mm Dark Age raiders that should be good for another 30 points


Not much to say about these that hasn't been said in other posts I did this group as all spear-men so I could theoretically use them as skirmishers.


The most ambitious of my hand painted shields in this batch a bird of pray or maybe a raven as was popular among the Vikings


 For the rest I went with much simpler designs


 Runes always make good shield decorations

 More geometric lines and shapes


 Runes again this time without any pater behind them


Finally the spiral lines this ones a favorite approach for me as it looks cool but its fairly easy to do.

From Curt:Nice work Adam! No one can have too many Dark Age raiders, well, except for villagers, priests, farmers, young women... Okay forget that. Nice shields thought (the raven one my personal favourite)!

  2. You're getting very good at the free hand on your shields. The bird of prey is a nice effort and I also like the spiral shield. As you said, that does look cool.

  7. Nicely done. Whenever I see Dark Age troops it makes me always think of the film 'Erik the Viking'.
    The spiral shield design is a very cool idea, which I'll probably be borrowing ;)
