Vicious Vikings!

Here are some of the Vikings I painted for a Saga warband. Mostly painted in Coat D'arms Triads  and army painter warpaints and inks:

I like what I see, particularly the bare-chested fellow's flesh.

If you're looking for feedback, the yellow hair doesn't strike me as right. I'd read online somewhere that a bit of green is the trick used by convas painters. I use Vallajo English uniform (a really muddy, dirty greenish brown) with a drybrush of VMC Iraqi Sand.

Thanks for the feedback.

Now that you mention it you are right on the yellow. Maybe the odd one or two might be shocking blonde Big Grin

I have plenty more Vikings and Saxons to paint so I am going to have a look through the paints I have and do a bit of testing.

I don't know why but the images had stopped displaying on this post and my army painter one. I have re-linked them and they are back.

I wonder why they disappeared, unless photobox changed the urls of their images after a while?

Nice miniatures. I hope to see these guys burn some cottages soon. Only suggestion: although they are called the dark ages, more light would enhance the picture quality Smile

I have now got myself another daylight lamp for my painting area so I will have a play and see if I can improve the "Dark ages" Big Grin

I suspect that a different background will help more than anything. It looks like your camera decided to meter the light level mostly from the background. Try to find a background that is lighter than the black plastic bases but darker than the metal armour. See if that helps.
