Over the past two Painting Challenges I've had the pleasure of collecting a wonderful assortment of figures from talented hobbyists from all around the world. I've been asked a number of times to put up a 'rogue's gallery' to display my ill-gotten booty, and so to answer that request here is the first instalment of my past Challenge fee submissions: The Vikings from the 2nd Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge.
As you can well imagine, I'm very proud of this collection. It's quite eclectic while still having a great central theme. I decided to add a sprig or two of yellow flowers to all the bases in order to mark them as 'Challenge Vikings' within my Dark Age collection. This way, when I have them out for a game, I'll know which figures will be the real fire-eaters. :)

This last photo features the whole warband with my shameless addition of 'Hrolf Heldrid', a warlord vignette that I put together during the Challenge that year. A force to be reckoned with!
