Norsemen Expeditionary Force

And here we are with the finished warband.

It was definitely worth revisiting the first two I painted a while back to add a touch of blue cloth for a unified feel across the group. Tweaking the weapon colouring to echo a darker blue turned out well too. Adding the bases to make them look out of place has added warmer but neutral colours and tones that contrast the textural browns of the clothing.

This was hard work, and I can't count how many times skin for the barbarian was repainted, or how much time I threw away trying to get the eyes looking correct, let alone consistent and in a direction. But, in the end they've ended up better than I thought they were going to. Trying to paint a whole set of super-detailed Hasslefree figures was giving myself a bit of a hospital pass, but it's done and I can breathe a sigh of relief.
