    He is the norse explorer Leif Eriksson, the first european that arrived to America, almost 500 years before Columbus.
    This resin kit is simply impressive and allows a lot of painting possibilities. Hope you like it :D :D :D

    I know that it's a small detail, but I really like the wood effect.
    Stunning work,

    A base of a ship is a very good idea.
    Indeed it's effective.
    A grain in the end of a ship is amazing.
    The figure is also perfect of course.
    A very cool product.
    I congratulate completion.

    I think that's my favourite part of the miniature's paintjob.

    Glad you like the miniature, guys. The thing I find most interesting in it is that, while most of the viking miniatures out there are mostly focused in the warrior and warlike aspect of this folk, this one has much more to do with the seafaring and explorer side of them, that is in fact more important from an historical point of view. So, in my opinion, this one really tells a different story ;)

    I think that this time, Jesús from HistoricArt has a true hit in his hands... It has been a true honor to paint it.
