Sometimes you get a project that is just so cool that you can’t let it go. It was the case with these Vikings. Or not quite Vikings, but their fantasy equivalents.
It was a few months ago that we were asked if we could get an unique warband painted. Had it been a typical run-of-the-mill warband, it could have been just another project for us. But these models and the backstory behind them were so uncommon and so special that we decided we simply had to do them! The owner of the miniatures liked Benathai`s style the most and insisted on having him paint the models, and so we did!
The most unique warband
So what was so special about the models? Well, not all of them existed at the moment the project started. Some were still being designed, as the warband included a few models which were sculpted specifically for this project, so there are only single copies of these models in the world!
So here’s the whole warband, and if you want to see the individual models, look a bit further below.
Characters for the viking warband
So here’s the seer. Heavily inspired by the “Vikings” TV show. The representation is pretty accurate, isn’t it?
Now this guy is a bear. A Norse bear though, so he belongs in the warband:
These two, the archer and the spearman, may seem more generic, so why don’t you take a quick look at the freehands which mark them as more individual characters.
This is their warpriest. He wears adamantine armor and is basically shorter than the others, just because that’s the way dwarves are. 😀
Finally the last two models represent the same character, Magnus the Jotunkin brawler, in two different states. One is his usual form while the giant one is what he looks like when he’s going berserk and frenzy transforms him into his giant form.
No, he’s not the Hulk – he’s not green. 😉
Even if you are familar with currently available miniature ranges, you may be unable to recognize the models used for Magnus, because they were made specifically for this warband. Isn’t it great to have such unique pieces to represent your characters?
Have ideas for cool projects?
It’s cool to participate in creation of such personalized projects, which are important to their owners. So if you have any interesting project you would like us to work on, feel free to contact us about it, because we can help you make it happen!
