I acquired 12 metal Bowmen from Gripping Beast to fill 1 point for my Viking Saga Warband. They are just about finished but I took some snaps for an in-progress view around a week ago. Here they are prior to applying GW Devlan Mud Wash. Colours are basically Vallejo colours collected for Flames of War. It was really unusual to see these colours in such large areas or coverage. It made me think about the colours in a different way. Like how blueish London Grey looks. I should have them completed in the next few days so I will post the final result soon.
The Gripping Beast Viking Bowmen as you can see comes with 4 different poses. It was slow going initially as there was a lot of flash to remove and the bows require gluing in place. I am not sure I got it all around the faces. They also seemed a little larger than the Gripping Beast Plastic Vikings I have done previously but should look fine on the gaming table.
Here is a Hearthguard unit prior to the wash. I tried a different technique for the blue pants. Painted them white and watered down some blue and painted on to get the shading. It worked I think. Behind them is some vikings with Little Big Men decals yet to be Matt varnished.
Cheers for now from Brendon (The Kiwi)
