This shall be the start of my painting diary. The inspiration for this project come from this contemporary renditio of the "Battle of Maldon"

I do not seek to recreate the historical Battle of Maldon, but want to end up with a force of fierce Viking  Raiders and staunch Saxon defenders to play some scenarios using Warmaster Rules. This is my first real forey into 10mm, so bear with me as I explore new lands.

I got AS3 and NO5 and so I am currently

- cleaning the models
- glueing them on coffee stirrers
