    While being on vacation I delivered several Vikings to a collector. The 1st is a MIG Viking Bust. The box art shows sorta drab colors and I decided to liven up the colors and give the Viking more life.

    The second is from Warriors and is ¼ scale. The original kit came with a full face guard which snapped right in half when I did just a test fit. I reduced the face guard down to just a nose guard.

    Thanks Gary,

    I think the ability to be working on several figures at one time makes it look like I am cranking them out but in reality between finishing several at one time there follows a dry period before several more are finished. Right now I have 15 empty work bases waiting for new figures to be pegged to them.

    I have a couple more I haven't posted photos of yet.

    Very nice, Guy. I particularly like the second one, and your choice of colors and details - particularly the patterns on the tunic, etc.

    Inspiring! :)
