Last month's Brother Vinni trial order also included a few Viking models to add to my swelling Dark Age collection. The first one to paint was, of course, another Ragnar Lodbrok. This makes the second one this year and five overall in the collection. I think this model is also the most "Travis Fimmel" Ragnar model I have done so far.
As with the other Brother-Vinni models these are all cast in Resin, and the detail is crisp and easy to pick out with a brush. There was very little in the way of flash or seams on this one. I am still getting used to the light weight of resin figures, though the cost is usually 2-3x that of metal figures. I am not sure if that is materials, or just the "Games Workshop" effect where people are used to paying outrageous sums for resin models.
I also picked up a couple of Resin standards to add to the collection as well as two more "Valkeries" in this case "Astrid" who looks more like Lagertha from the series "Vikings" and an armored standard bearer to go with her.
I am not sure when I may get around to doing more updates on the page. As it stands I have about 1100 points worth of painted models since the quarantine started that I have not put up on the blog. Something about spending all my time working on-line has sapped my interest in spending social time here. Perhaps in the fall. I hope all is well for any who lasted this long.
