Added my second post of loot and stuff bases. These definitely have the PP figs - I'm still not sure what the guy with the box of heads is going to do with it but heck. Ransoming the saints heads I guess. :)

I keep painting for this - at some point I'll get to play the game. :)

I still have more figs on the painting table but here are a few more bases.



I even have some berserkers ready for the fight:

Your photos are making me want to jump back into this once I get established in my new home. MAD Vikings is also motivating me in that direction.

What technique are you using to make chainmail look like that?

Sorry for the late reply.

I do a black undercoat, then block paint with a dull metal colour - I tend to use an art paint metallic for that. Then a black wash (I use GW ones) and finally on the raised bits especially for the rich I'll do a light silver drybrush. Less is more on that last stage though

So, I am slowly continuing my build up of forces. So I started some mounted figs for a change. I'm sure I'll find a use for them in some manner.



Here is a close up shot of the first rank:

Those mounted troops have come out particularly well. The chainmail effect really "pops". Thanks for sharing!
