This little project has been long in the production as I got these figures for my old friend Steve M as a significant birthday present and added in an offer to paint and base them, to make them an attractive addition to Steve's growing collection of 28mm Dark Ages.
That was nearly a couple of years ago now, which has seen a global pandemic and me rather occupied with model ships, but I like to consider myself a man of my word and as soon as the opportunity came to get some long outstanding painting jobs done, these Footsore Vikings including 'yer man' Erik Oakspitter himself were got ready for some 'tender loving care'.
The warriors all come with a clenched hand designed to be drilled for a particular weapon and not having specific weapon choices to hand I substituted two of them with a sword and the other an axe to add some variation, with both weapons taken from some spare arms from some plastic offerings I had built previously and I think the conversion has worked really well.
The shield decals are of course from Little Big Men and the designs just finish the figures off perfectly.
Footsore are a class above to my mind and these chaps were a pleasure to paint and made a nice change in palette and so I hope you like them Steve.
Now where are the rest of those ships?
