Victrix Vikings
« on: October 31, 2019, 10:19:53 PM »
Hi guys,

Managed to get my hands on a couple of sprues of the Victrix Vikings and am massively impressed; easily some of the best plastics I've ever worked on. I've done a couple of berserkers first, more to follow :)

These are nice, better than my gripping beast Vikings, thinking of getting the victrix saxons myself.

Yeah, proportionally speaking they are ace.   8) 8) 8)

I'd love to see how many different poses it's possible to get from one frame, especially when painted so please do continue to post up pics

I made a command decision recently. No more figures purchased of any kind till the lead mountain had become a pimple. Seeing these lads I'm wavering!

They look realistic and poses good. Painting is real tops too

Those are very nice and I like the paint jobs. I'm adding those figures to my Christmas list now.

I honestly think there's so many possibilities with them as there are so many different heads and weapons; it's an incredibly well thought out kit

Victrix Vikings are very nice and make the barbarian side well.  :)

Ah, but these fellers are plastic, so they won't contribute to the lead mountain!
