    Hey all
    Riding season is in full swing here but I hope to maintain at least a one fig a month production.

    To that end... here's my fig for this last month... "Not in my hall!"

    As Christianity made its way north, some embraced the new faith but many stood firm against the White Christ, holding to the old gods. In our case, a travelling monk intruded on the quiet hall of this Jarl... a true Odinnsman... and tried his hand at converting the heathens. Bad move.

    He replied to the offered cross with the axe and the words "The Nailed God?... Not in my hall!"

    The fig is a 75mm from FeR Miniatures. Painted with Scale75, Vallejo and DarkStar acrylics. In the foreground of the base is a rough sandal belonging to the unfortunate monk made from MS... gives a little context. This is my first kick at freehand striping... with limited success. I am happy with the fat breeks though.

    Hope you enjoy... critiques and comments are always welcome.

    Thanx Bob,
    I haven't given up on the Black Powder era... still my fav... but of later I've been reading tons of Norse fiction and I am developing a very deep connection to the Viking period.

    Not to worry... I have a Vistula Lancer, an Imperial Cossack and some French Nappys on deck. And a couple of more Vikings too ;)

    Thanx Allen
    The wide stripes felt good but there's definitely a lot of improvement to be made on the thinner stripes. Maintaining width, position and paint concentration were all a challenge. Yellow over dark blue was a rough choice for sure. Dark over light (like the green over white) would've given me a leg up I think
