Final Vikings for awhile and some terrain bits!

So, today is an off work day, and since I'm not feeling well, I threw some laundry in the wash, started the dishwasher, and settled in to do some hobby stuff.

I finished varnishing and dressing up the bases on the last few Vikings I'm going to do for awhile -

There's all five together.

The sculpt on the left is awesome, the one on the right was massively covered in flash.

The bald dude in the center is the leader of my generic Javelin armed Levy.

I really need to get a camera.  The phone just doesn't do any of these figures justice.  Maybe when the finances permit!

Next up are these terrain bits and pieces.  I've been wanting to get a bunch of terrain done, and where possible I want it to be multi-genre/period, I think I've succeeded with at least a few of these.

This is a model railroad kit I picked up at a thrift store and works decently well scale wise with 28mm figures.  I assembled, and painted it, and I swear it looks way better in person.  

Telegraph poles.  I obviously need more space, and a light box. 

More tree bases.  I plan on making some area bases for these to fit into at some point.

Not a bad days work, and I'm still cracking on...this is just what I've gotten finished so far.

2015 Painted Figures - 26
2015 Finished Terrain - 11


  1. Finishing figures is always a satisfying feeling, so well done on that front, but to also get some more terrain is a great bonus to your efforts, I really do like that trackside hut, I immediately thought it would make a great "office" for a junk-yard!

  2. I dig the hobo shack. The telegraph poles are pretty sweet too.
    Interesting mix of flocking on the tree bases....what are you using?

    Definitely some good numbers for 2015 so far. I'm quite envious.

    1. Dave, its a mix of 3 different Woodland Scenic's flocks. I'll post up my "recipe" here in the next couple days.

  3. Excellent job and I'm loving the look of the terrain pieces.

  4. Cool Vikings dude! Terrain's looking great, love that hobo shack.

  5. Vikings are great as is. Phone camera seems ok to me mate.

    Love the shack - do you have hobo's to go with it?

    1. I've got a few zombie hobos, does that count?

  6. A great selection of stuff here - I love that shack :) DA stuff looks great too, although (as mentioned on FB) I think you should add scratches and scuffs to the painted shields, so that they match up somewhat with the LBM ones!
