DBMM - Norse Viking Baggage

 The lack of appropriate baggage has stopped me using my Norse Viking DBMM army so far. I've had the army for about 15-20 years and I think it has made the table once.

Inspired by the final season of "Vikings", I thought it was about time I rectified that.

I managed to pick up a plastic Longship at a now-defunct Wellington model shop. I then cut it in half to give me the pieces for two beached longships on the Northumberland coast. 

The barrels, sacks and crates are from a MicroArts studio "Ware Pile" kit I picked up from Scott at Kapiti Hobbies.

The ground is all done from a mix of AK Interactive ground textures suitably washed. I've then used some left over figures - all Wargames Foundry - to give the scene some character.

I also replaced the plastic shields that came with the ship with metal Foundry ones. These have more heft....and Vikings appreciate their heft.

Finally, there is a smattering of static grass with some obligatory scattered tufts.

Quite happy with how it finished up and am looking to running the Vikings on the table.

It is quite a mono-dimensional army - 20 Huscarls [Bd(O)], a single Berzerker [Wb(S)], 2 Mounted Scouts [Cv(I)] and 40 Undisciplined Raiders [Bd(F)]. It also has its own fleet of six Longships [Bts(S)]. And of course, all Irregular........"Here for a good time, not a long time!!!!"
