V&V Miniatures have previewed another of the miniatures coming in their new Viking set. See what you think of this raider who has no doubt just hopped out of his longship and is looking for some gold to steal…
As you can see he is lunging forward to smash his axe into some poor Saxon shield with that cloak billowing out behind him. Painting those big fur cloaks is a lot easier than regular cloaks so I’m glad to see that they made that decision!
With a bit more damage to the shield this would make for a good seasoned raider. It’s nice to see that he has the sword at his side as well as the axe. Once he’s sunk the axe into someone’s skull he’ll certainly need another weapon to carry on fighting a more worthy foe.
What do you think?
