Heroic fighters and men of the North

Here are the latest miniatures that I have been working on. I mixed bag of warriors. First of we have three men of the North. Two of them are Foundry recasts while the last, the one with the falcon, is a Citadel original. I kind of like these Norse miniatures. The guy with the bird is definitely an old favorite of mine.

Most of them are fairly simple and in fact a lot of them look quite alike; long hair, mustache, furs and sword or spear. Nevertheless they have lots of attitude and it would be great to compile a Norse warband of some sort. Come to think of it – perhaps I should try to do a scenario of some sort where Norse men raid a Norse dwarf settlement or something. One could even throw in some trolls and gnomes to keep up with the Scandinavian theme…

Then we have two fighters – one from Citadel (the winged helmet) and one from Marauder. I really like these unspecified fighters. They frankly reek of adventure and pulpy action. Lots of Citadel’s warriors from the 80’s are as over the top and wild looking as the contemporary chaos miniatures. I think this guy here with the winged helmet is a good example of exactly this.

Finally we have a somewhat more modest Marauder fighter. Not too much to say about him; very simple and a very simple paint-job. Oh ya, by the way, the motif for the shield was taken from one of the banners shown in the first medieval fight scene in Highlander. This is the level of inspiration which grows out of watching geekie movies while hung-over.

By the way, none of the bases are finished.
