Vikings Phase Two: The Shield Maidens pt.4

Hi everyone,

Today I continue the process of sculpting the nymph into an awesome shield maiden warrior!

Now after I finished the clothing, belts and leggings it was time to move on to the rest.

The net step was to add details to the clothing like fur and and extra belting, as well as a helmet I cut of a plastic dark age warrior.

The final step was to add the weapons and tidy everything out.  This is the most time consuming step as it takes a lot of measuring.

I remember telling you that I had bought a dark age plastic sprue for the shields.  I thought that the ones that come with the Foundry figures were a bit too bulky for the shield maidens.  As it urns out I found the plastic shields to thin and fiddly and in the end went with the metal ones.  Once again I had to pin them in place or they would easily come off.

The unit is now ready for painting.  I will paint them in blocks of four like I did with the rest of the Viking warriors.  This allows me to break down the work  into manageable parts and helps to keep me motivated as I see the unit build up steadily.

Until then farewell and good health to one and all!
