Foundry Vikings

   These are all Foundry vikings for sale. These figures have been around for a while
and certainly hold up being very nice figures. Reds, Leaf Green and blues were
favored by the vikings for colors. Also white, black, scarlet as well as browns/red brown
and creams were common in addition to grey which was a common choice for cloaks.
Shield colors of yellow, red, black, and white where the most popular....and the main
choices used for models. Note: figures are not based only temp mounted for pics will
be detached before sending

Artizan Design Carolingians Cavalry

   Following figures posting that are for sale....I included both a figure of Charlemagne
and a standard bearer....choice of colors noted on the Gripping Beast post. Beautiful
figures these are....I do wish they had bigger hands for gripping the spear/lance only
gripe I have but do enjoy the shields they provided. I mostly opted for one color
for the shield as I understand at least during the early period of the Carolingians
that was most common. Note: figures are not based only temp mounted for pics will
be detached before sending

Gripping Beast Carolingian Cavalry

    Below are the photos of some Gripping Beast figures posting for sale. I have also included a comparison pic next to some Artizan Design Carolingians for those interested
how they relate to each other in style as well as size. I did use some LBMS transfers
with these in addition to hand painted shields (In general I prefer hand painted but
for ease used a few) and went with standard colors. Carolingians were noted for a
preference of scarlet leggings...both white and blue were common tunic colors with
the tunics edged in a contrasting color. Other colors such as yellow, ochre, red
as well as browns and creams were noted. These figures have the closed hands that
have to be drilled which I really like as they give a firm grasp of spear retention from
coming loose. Note: the figures are not based...only mounted for pics they will be detached
before sending.
