I have been keeping myself busy painting some of the absolutely lovely H&R Viking longships and crew, a load of pics on my blog: http://ablogofwar.blogspot.co.uk/
as ever comments/criticism appreciated.31/08/2015 at 17:31 #30246CerdicParticipant
Lovely stuff! I have one of the ships (impulse buy at Salute…) but didn’t realise they did crew as well!31/08/2015 at 19:39 #30257
it was mainly seeing the crew that sold me on buying the ships, I always like to add crew to things where I can, and these are particularly nice and the lack of bases makes them look so much better when in place.01/09/2015 at 07:40 #30289
This range was originally carried by the now defunct Kremlin Miniatures. I did a lot of research when I commissioned those figures even going as far as seeking opinions/advice from someone that had actually sailed in a (replica) longship. At 1mm equaling 1ft the ships are correctly scaled in size to match the archaeological evidence of their construction, this also means they are correctly scaled against each other. The masters were created by Martin Baker, a leading light in the field of figure sculpting. And you, Northern Monkey, have painted them very nicely indeed.01/09/2015 at 13:09 #30308
Thanks for the info Alvin, I suspected they were a bought in range as the sculpting is far different from the usual H&R stuff (that’s not criticism of H&R I love their stuff), its a beautifully sculpted range and between you and Mr Baker you should be very proud of them, I will be adding some Anglo Saxons when time allows as I need some targets for my slaughtering and pillaging!
And I will update my blog with your info too01/09/2015 at 13:35 #30313Piyan GlupakParticipant
Kremlin Miniatures had some good stuff. I wish that I had bought some of their Siberian tribes 15mm figures when they had them.02/09/2015 at 07:39 #30345
Richard, at the risk of derailing Northern Monkey’s thread and apologies to you NM for going off topic, the Siberian range was bought by M.Y. Miniatures and Mick has put the range back into production.02/09/2015 at 18:17 #30361Piyan GlupakParticipant
Thanks, Alvin, that is good news. MY Miniatures is a firm that I might be ordering from for a couple of other things as well, in the autumn.
@Northern Monkey – Sorry about the off-topic posts.25/11/2015 at 08:51 #3489825/11/2015 at 09:43 #34905
They look great, nice job. If you want them even more colourfull you can also paint the strakes.25/11/2015 at 14:25 #34917
