Saga Vikings - Warriors Complete

Viking Bondi: "We'd rather be faaaarming!"

Finally. here's the last two points (Warriors) of my Saga Viking Warband.  Now with completed bases, shields, and a bit of blood for good measure.  As I mentioned before, the Bondi really gave me the opportunity to add a lot of color to the warband by not having any armor/chainmail to cover up their tunics.





I've continued the black and white shield scheme that I've discussed previously HERE and HERE.  With the Bondi however, I've made an effort to keep the shield designs much simpler than their Hirdmen brethren.  Their Ash wood spears add another bit of contrast to the rest of the warband.





I hope to post some photos of the completed warband here in the near future.  Meanwhile, previous posts and pics of the warband can be found HERE.

    1. Thanks Paul, I'm hoping to take some more professional group pics with terrain soon. I'm not that good at Saga just yet, but they did look good on the tabletop last Thursday. :-)

    2. The game is all about aesthetics and socialising. Victory is nice but its a long way down the list in importance!

  5. All that blood and not a scratch on the warriors! Impressive and fearsome!

    Their enemies are surely quaking behind their beards.

    Good stuff!

  8. Great work man. There are fun to see in person on the field and the colors really do stand out nicely.

  9. They definitely look very nice! Even if they'd rather be farming it really seems like they've been fertilizing the ground with the blood of their enemies recently

    1. Thanks Russ, I really do believe quality basing can make any level paint job look way better.
