I finished a unit of Vikings, the figures are footsore, and the flag and shield decals are LBMS.
Good figures, but not the style I do my best work. Lots of flat surfaces, very little for me to shade/highlight. Not a critique of the figures, it's just different styles.
I put the 5 fighters in gambesons up front as the better equipped would take place in the front.
I'm guessing, in reality, every single Viking going into a fight would have a gambeson.
But I'm guessing it would remove the Viking feel and they'd just look like all other medieval spear infantry only with round shields.
I have a second unit to paint, that unit will be a mix of unarmored and mail.
