This Wargames Factory’s set includes parts to built up 32 Viking Huscarls. It comes spread in 12 sprue, 8 for bodies and arms and 8 for weapons and shields. There are axes, spears, swords and even 16 archers are available. Weapons variety is not a problem. Some swords are sheathed to complement figures and you have 12 different heads to choose. A horn per weapon sprue is also included, so some “musician” can be built.
Each sprue comes with 4 bodies (body and legs in one piece, so poses are limited), with a quite better detail than their Roman sets, although it’s still improvable. Depend on the way you built up the figures you will get a well spare bunch of pieces, something which i like :).
Poses are a bit an odd, and some special character to make a command group are needed, but figures are good enough to built up a mass troop.
Paint work was easy, base coat, Devlan mud wash (black ones for the metal zones) and the highlight with base colour again.
Figures after wash:
One highlight and bases almost finished. Bases worked as always with “Vandall” (pumice stone) and once dried washed with an earth colour or Devlan Mud.
Shields with transfers.
The set is available through our utility here.
