IgnacioR - My First Vikings (116 Points)



Last painting of the year, sixteen viking and four berserks, I went really easy with this pack, the whole thing is a couple of colours and some washes, but I added more love to the shields. Bases are simple, no grass or anything else, maybe in the future I will add some yellow grass or something like this.






I know... There is blood, again... I'm not bloody Nacho but they look good with it. With this I´m almost in the middle of my pledge, and painting five more model I will finish my Saga vikings first 4 points. In plan for the start of the year there are multiple options, my friend are starting a league for the lord of the rings, there is this chaos warmaster army screaming to me from the boxes... Anyway I wish you all a happy new year, full of health, wealth, love and hobby!!!!









Happy New Year Nacho! You've done some lovely work on these vikings! These lads look like they are ready to make some monks' day very, very miserable. I also really like your impressionistic shield art - so evocative of what artisans would create during the period. 

I'm looking forward to seeing some Warmaster stuff as I haven't seen any of those models for years!

  6. I have quite a lot of Vikings waiting behind the curtains for this year's Challenge as well, yours are truly an inspiration for me to get mine done! I really dig how you've tied the figures together through the use of the palette and the shield designs. Great stuff!

  10. Thank you people!!! I´m glad with the result, the shields and the use of blood were planned to make them look similar, Just five more and I´m done with the dark age for a while...

    1. Thanks, its really easy, first I´ve painted the base colours of the shields, when the white and blue were finished then with some ideas of viking shileds I made base lines with detail brush and black, after some lights with grey and white and that´s all.

  13. Really fine work! I like the color choice and the sheilds are wicked cool! Just enough blood for a viking band too!
