NORSE WARRIORS

These Norse are mainly old Citadel ones (mid 80s). This range was later sold by Wargames Foundry, the only difference being they replaced Slottabases with moulded ones. The berserker at the back, who is chewing the rim of his shield to work himself into a frenzy, was an extra that Wargames Foundry have added to the range.

Unfortunately these are no longer available, but Foundry has this new range of Vikings.

 

These were collected over a long period of time, with the first members being painted 5 or 6 years before the last.

I have used an earthier palette than usual to give that primitive feel but the colours are still brighter and more varied than they really would have been. Being truely realistic would have been a bit drab.

Norse favoured strong geometric designs, often with radial symmetry around the central boss. Some of these are Citadel plastic shields, and others are metal ones from Wargames Foundry.

On the left is Black Tree Design (formerly Harlequin) Miniatures' Champion of Rohan figure. Although he isn't Norse, I have included him because he is in the same Dark Ages style, although more Anglo Saxon than Norse perhaps. The motive on the shield is a variation of the badge of Rohan; a white horse on a green field.

Now sold as part of 'Men of West Plains' command group.
