So it was time to dust off (literally) my long ship and Vikings (Wargames Factory plastics). It turned out to be a meeting engagement of 6 chieftains with their accompanying warbands. I look at my boys and noticed that I was still lacking in the 'warriors' (i.e. non-huscarl / armored units) and 'berserker' categories.

Hmmm, if memory serves, I have some unpainted Vikings from Black Tree Design stashed away somewhere...
|Turns out that my list needed 2 units of 8 Warriors each and 1 unit of 4 Berserkers. I looked in my unpainted minis box and Voila!|
|I mounted them on pennies and used my slurry mix (also used in my Incursion 3d board project for creating pre-cast concrete walls) for basing.|
|After the prerequisite black primer, I dry-brushed with a sand color by Anita's Craft Paint, a cost effective (read cheap) paint from Hobby Lobby.|
|Apply watered downed base color.|
|Dip into some Army Painter Quickshade Strong Tone.|
|Apply dry shield transfers from Little Big Man Studios.|
|Spray with Testors Dull Kote.|
Front row: Beserkers
Back Row: 2 units of 8 Warriors each

Next up: the battle royal or in this case, the brawl!
