Coming to a Saxon village near you!
The first four points of my Saga Viking warband are now complete. Finished up the bases, completed the last few shields, and added a bit of blood. Next up is the Warlord and the Bondi. Not much else to say that has not already been said. For the curious, those details can be found in previous posts HERE.
I already spoke at length about shields HERE, but I thought I'd revisit the subject briefly. As I mentioned before, I decided to go with a limited black and white scheme specifically for this warband. As you'll begin to see in future posts, these vikings are also part of a larger army for the game Hail Caesar. As I paint the rest of the army, the rest of the shields will be done in the typical colorful viking way. These figure then can blend in separately amongst the other units. They can also be brought back together in one unit where their unique shield color scheme can help designate an elite unit or mercenaries.
