Lokis' Vikings




Back at the end of April, Andrew aka Loki, ran a blog comp celebrating his 2nd Blog Birthday!! Guess who won top prize.......Me!
My prize was 10 figures of my choice painted up by Loki, he did offer to base them, but I did that myself to match it in with my other long lost Vikings.
The flags are mine, the white one can be found here, as well some others I made, all ready for you to download if you so wish. Eight of the figures are Artizan, the Viking figure charging (on the right) came free with entrance to a show a couple of years ago, but I can't remember which show, maybe it was from Newark?? The last figure, the one on the left, is Foundry's king Arthur figure, ok he's not a Viking, but he'll be added into my Saxon army.
I've got to say I'm very impressed at the way Andy's painted them, they look excellent!! So when I win the lottery on Saturday, expect a phone call Andy, I've got tons of other things that you'll be painting up!!!!

Thanks again Andy!!!!

  3. Congrats Ray. They do look good I must say and Loki painting Vikings has a nice symmetry to the concept. While I can't be sure that was your thinking I suspect it would fit your humour.
