28mm Vikings


In an effort to try to get some of my collection painted and playable, I have resorted to outsourcing some of my painting. I have a friend who has had a lot of free time who had asked if I had any figures he could paint. I gladly sent off some of my 28mm Vikings. The initial offering was a collection of Plastic Wargames Factory Saxons and Crusader Viking command in metal. This was capped off by a dwarfed skald, sculpted by me. The Saxons had  been "Vikingized" by the generous application of some Green Stuff to give them proper hair and beards.


I think my biddy did a good job of painting them all to tabletop standard. I intentionally had him avoid any shield markings beyond colored sections. I can add transfers to the shields later.

I've sent off a batch of 28mm cowboys and US Cav to see how he does with a different subject matter.

  1. very nice - I wish I could outsource some of my minis for the same reason, but there are no painters near by.

  5. Thanks to all. I cannot take credit for the paint jobs. That goes to my buddy Richard.

    It is nice to see the skald oainted up. He was fun to sculpt.
