Drum roll please....
Here are the first two units of my Viking army for Basic Impetus. Why the drum roll? Well, these are also the first 28mm figures I've completed. I feel obscurely guilty about neglecting my little 1/72 friends, but I'll get back to them soon.
Figures are from Wargames Factory. This is also the first time I've used the tufts on the bases, and I like the effect.
Figures are block painted, then have Army Painter strong shade applied by brush before being finished off with some highlighting. I want to work on the highlighting - not happy with it yet. I keep trying to drybrush on lighter shades, but the figures I see that look the best seem to add much bolder lines or blocks of colour.
Shields are all handpainted, with designs from various sources but particularly inspired by Neldoreth's Hour of Wolves and Shattered Shields site He is a truly brilliant painter. The banner is a paper one from Gripping Beast.
One of the things I like about Impetus is the larger base size, so I have tried to make use of it here with a little vignette featuring an overzealous Saxon about to meet his maker.
Thanks for looking!
