    Hello to all of you,

    The year of 988 an elite Rus/Varangian unit consisting of 6000 men attached to the Byzantine army leading by the glorious King Emperor (Βασιλεύς Αυτοκράτωρ) Basil II .
    "Romeo's" miniatures recently released a figure at the scale of 75mm representing a Viking warrior. I made a minor conversion and turned it into a Varangian Guardsman. The soldier is on guard duty outside the palace (just one year after his coming to Constantinopolis) and his shield is a ceremonial one.

    I hope you like it, greetings
    Christos.

    Bravo Koumparoukla! Great figure and great setting.
    Although i understand that sculpting the boots must have taken you only about 15minutes!
    Keep them coming!

    Mindblowing in its awesomeness. I love everything about it. That's as close to perfection as a paint-job gets, I reckon. Great work!
