Here come some more 28mm Vikings and extras!

Hi all,

I have been painting up some of my many 28mm Vikings. These come from a number of different makers and I like them all. I have to say the ones of the characters from the TV show Vikings are very good.

 I have only painted up Ragnar and his brother Rolo so far but I have Foki and Bjorn to paint up soon.

I also painted up some dogs that can be used to attack other animals and humans in the Blood Eagle set of rules I have.

Also included in the painting is two Rune stones that are pretty good.

I hope you like them

Here is a group shot of all the 28mm Vikings I have painted here in Sweden.

Back to painting!

Hi all,

Well I took some time today and did some painting. I painted up the aircraft that I needed to fill out the complement of fighters and bombers that I needed for the HMS Victorious and the German Aircraft carrier Graf Zeppelin.

So here are the aircraft for the Germans, first up ar the Me-109T's

Next are the Ju-87C's

Above is the full compliment of aircraft with one miniature representing four aircraft.

Next up is the British. Here are the Fulmar fighters.

And here is the full complement of Fulmar's and Swordfish.

Have a good weekend!

Game night at the club

Hi again,

Well this week I went to the club and played a fun game that takes place during the GNW somewhere in Swedish occupied Norway. we used a set of rules called Musket Mayhem- large scale skirmish rules that are being developed by a few members of our club.

Here are some pictures of the game, there will be a write up and an AAR from Jesper later this week or early next. I will post a link to his post once it is up.

It was a fun game and it moved quick!

Have a good weekend!
