    The figure looks nice enough. But having him balanced precariously like that atop the prow of the longboat as he leaps ashore just looks wrong. How would he climb up there for starters? And why would he anyway??! Implausible on every level.

    Dear Sir, most of thank you for reply.
    I agree about definitely different realistic, it was just concept. and had some fantasy in my imaginations.
    And I just want to make this concept and many people thought it would be like to my figures.

    If you did disappoint my figure. i'm very apology to you.

    Best regards. DG-Artwork

    Certainly dynamic not sure how much of the boat but the figure might be able to be put on it ......Steve raises some good points though .

    The sculpting of the figurehead on the boat looks really good

    Nice painting as well

    I like it a lot, nice and different, as for the pose, it's not beyond the bounds of possibility that one of the more extrovert Vikings of the time might have done this, they did after all jump from oar to oar of a ship as it was being rowed as a mark of prowess.

    Very nice indeed full of action and well painted I'm sure will do well, it should please the fantasy people too with the explosive pose could see it as part of a Vignette. still good work all round

    Cheers

    The whole composition is of course completely unrealistic, but there are so many boring fantasy viking figures around. This one at least stands out for its exceptional dynamism. And it offers so many options for conversion. I would get rid of the prow and the shield at the back (another ridiculous element imposed by fantasy movies). Overall, the figure is weird, but I like it.

    No disappointment here. I think the figure itself is very nice and - as others have said - very dynamic. I do like Vikings, and it's something that I'd buy. I'd just have him maybe leaping off a (low) rock, and keep the prow of the longship to use for something else.

    Keep up the good work! (y)

    I like the figure itself - I would probably place him jumping down a hillside instead though. Maybe he could be placed jumping off the side of the boat rather than from the top.

    I like it too and I can see how it may be accused of having an unrealistic pose however it might be possible to relocate to figure lower down so that he is jumping of the side of the boat, I think the section of boat is an excellent idea and gives the figure additional appeal, I have no doubt that we will see many different things produced using this figure.
    Nice one guys at DG-Artwork.

    Bearing in mind all the points above, with which I agree; it's a lovely figure, very useable and would relate well to other figures on the market.

    A brave sculpt too.

    Perhaps we should criticise the martial arts oriented tv series that claim to be historically accurate for overfiring the imagination here.

    I actually love the figure pose, just not it's application.

    Lovely sculpt but totally unrealistic. Unless he's jumping on to something similar in height to the prow he would hurt himself on landing. There were some extroverts I agree but not ones who would risk breaking legs to look good or to get killed if they fall - remember that battlefield archeology shows that in pre-gunpowder battles there was no chivalry and the side that broke or fell is the one which got killed.

    He could be used in a fantasy role where the laws of physics don't apply in the same way as reality.

    Cheers

    Not sure how you think he'd definitely hurt himself by jumping down about 8' or so TBH and as for not wanting to look good, that's rather a lynch pin of a lot Viking behaviour, you'd be surprised how many risks they would take, especially if they'd boasted about it before, bragging actually comes from the Norse tongue and it wasn't a negative thing as it tends to be today. There are many rune stones that are nothing more than Viking willy waving :ROFLMAO: for instance.

    You underestimate the height of the figurehead Steve. We're only seeing part of it here in this sculpt. Also the mail etc weren't light and if landing on a coast possibly jumping on to jagged rocks... the norsemen were fighters but definitely not stupid.

    As for boasting whilst the Viking had runes and legends but do we really have reliable eyewitness records as for example with some Roman history? So how can that statement about surprised how many risks they would take be justified other than to acknowledge that they were brave enough to set out to uncharted seas. The truth is we don't know but we assume.

    Cheers
