Tbh I like this solution better than having a visible joint within the mail shirt. So far no hassle..

Really nice, I am looking forwards to my "present" from Victrix :)

Hákon Blóđgeirr would be his Norse name if I remember my old norse correctly ;)

Lovely Andy  :-*

I know there’s been some bleating about the chainmail. The links do look oversized - but then all depictions of mail on inch high figures is representative, not truly accurate. I don’t think this is necessarily a worse way of doing it than rows of little dots... although looking again at your latest figure, do the links look ever so slightly hexagonal?

Bet they’re beautifully easy to paint though! Drybrush heaven ;)

Ah the never ending chainmail discussion  o_o
I know..Well, it looks fine to me but I’m sure some will disagree and not enjoy the figures for what they are because of it. In my opinion they are missing out big time here. In the flesh you wouldn’t even notice it I guess, particularly if you are over fifty like me, but a picture obviously magnifies dramatically.
And yes, they paint up very nicely indeed (although I don’t drybrush my figures, just Leadbelcher and Nuln Oil Gloss does it for me  ;) ).

Bootiful. I found someone on eBay selling single sprues for a fiver, so I've been persuaded to give them a go.
