By popular demand on Discord, behold, my collection of Nordlings!  (Plus a few surprises at the end, if you have the patience.)

While I mentioned on Discord that I planned to be painting Frost Raven helmets this weekend, I kept the rest of the army close to my proverbial vest.  As you can see, there were quite a few of them. 

 

Spoiler

 

Please ignore my ratty old covers and the organizer I forgot to crop out, I just wanted to get reeeeaaaally close to those pikes.

 

Spoiler

 

While I knew my Nordling army would inevitably include some stereotypical Viking-style axes and shields, I also wanted to try my hand at the Geatling pikemen that Scorp mentioned in "Wake Not the Sleeping Bull."  The Northmen adapting their tactics and weaponry to counter Imperial knights fascinated me greatly.  Oh, and speaking of Stebbins short stories, look who tagged along there, in the center left!  If you haven't bought their collection already, I highly recommend that you do.

These are my "specialists," aka the minifigs I couldn't fit on the other baseplate.  Frederik the Burning Viking and the Frost Raven with an actual cape were both Patreon rewards, while the rest were assembled by me.  The berserker's decal probably came from something else, but I needed a shirtless decal to go with the wolfskin headpiece, and I forgot to order that decal separately.  Hopefully you'll also think that it looks cool.

I'm still not quite sure about my choice for the BrickWarriors bardiches for the Frost Ravens' halberds, but neither BW nor the regular Lego halberds quite fit the official images, either.  Also, rear view of the Patreon Frost Raven to show off his custom cape.

Here we have a closer view of some of the more unique Northern warriors from my formation.

While I was in a painting mood, I also assembled my very own Princess Adrianya minifig!  Finding her hairpiece wasn't nearly as frustrating as getting the paint on her arms and hands to cooperate, but she still looks quite pretty.  I didn't paint the armored duckling Sir Tom to the left, I just wanted to show him off, since he's been in my collection since the Kickstarter.

 

Spoiler

 

Another minifig that's been in my collection a while is my Wulfgard sigfig: Inquisitor Marcus Capulet!

 

Spoiler

 

Sans helmet and halberd, with a bewildered expression on his face.  Anyone who's RP'd with me in Errant knows this is pretty much Marcus' default expression nowadays. 

 

Spoiler

 

While I was in a painting mood, I ended up idly thinking to myself, "Hey, if I was a Moderator during the SYWBAA days, what would my Skorpiontowne Guard minifig look like?"  This was the result.  There was a gold paint pen in the pack with the silver pen I got for the Frost Ravens, and I had no intention of letting it go to waste.

A poor attempt at the "Spiderman Points at Spiderman" meme, because I am a nerd.

Hah, quite the juxtaposition there!  I haven't forgotten the first one, with the awesome temple guards, but seeing the tables turn like this amused me a good bit more than it should have.  There may even have been chuckling.  <.<  >.>

I've rewatched the Frozen II trailer about 5 times this afternoon, and I am no less excited.  The sweeping landscapes, the exciting snippets of action, Elsa's hair and her apparent war against the ocean, everything is looking gorgeous!  My only question is whether the writers will have a new song for Idina Menzel to be bugged to sing over and over again.  <.<  >.>

 

But dangit Anna, get your own sword!  That is not proper weapon etiquette.

Looks gorgeous, Neyo!  I like how you give context with the historical facts and actual blueprints, too.  You pushed through the issues to make an outstanding product, and your tank build is magnificent, thanks to your efforts.

I really love the overally design for the Golden Banner. Between the mix of decals, BW equipment, and BF equipment, you've created a really awesome group of lamellar wearing bad@$$3$!

 

Thank you so much!  The shoulderpad decals were particularly annoying to trim, especially when they kept falling amongst the other paper trimmings, lol.  I'm glad you like how they turned out.  I was experimenting with various looks for the Southron civilizations of Wulfgard, and figured Scorp's Assassin's Creed lamellars would be the best fit for their warriors.

 

I do like how varied each army is, even among the different 'units'. Gives the realistic vibe of who has more money and preferences to armor and weapons.

I look forward to more!

 

I'm so happy you noticed!  Playing around with a uniform appearance but non-standard weapons and units was an exciting challenge.  I might add some regular archers to The Vigil eventually, and I definitely plan to keep expanding my Veritshire Guard minifigs as I go.

 

Thank you, there will definitely be more.

 

This is some really good stuff you've got here Cappy!

 

I especially like Vertishire Guard in the Black Dragon helmet, and the Grimm III cameo in the Golden Banner.

 

Thanks, Dalton!

 

You're still misspelling "Veritshire," lol, but I'm glad you found a favorite.  The Guardians are where I was able to break the mold and just have fun with the craziest choices, figuring the knights, mercenaries, and reformed bandits would bring the most eclectic collection.

 

Grimm III cameo?  *looks back through the pictures*  Oh, right, the guy with the eyepatch.  Yep, that was a totally planned reference.  Definitely.  Not a coincidence at all.  *sweats*
