I don’t think there’s anything that overtly ties him towards a particular faction and in fact, I could imagine him working as both a Viking and an Anglo-Dane/Saxon in the likes of SAGA. You might even be able to take him further afield if you added a few additional accessories.
I like the introduction of a lot more of those finer elements on the model which mark him out as a character and a cut above the rest. The sword resting at his side and the accessories and belts across his chest will work as important spots of colour to break up the chainmail.
The model also has one of the coolest looking helmet styles from the period too where it covers the top half of the head and the chainmail works like a coif, worked up under the helmet to protect the rest of the face. It gives the model a very menacing look.
With a shield like that, you might also be able to expand on my poor choice of a scheme (which is just one solid colour) and either do some freehand work or use some of the transfers that exist out there.
What do you think of this Warlord?
