THE NORSE : PRESENTATION
A few weeks already that the Norse army is painted, with delay here is a general presentation, I will come back then with a series of more precise articles on certain elements of the army.
A group view before painting!
Review of each unit.
The main army colors are pale blue and pale yellow, seen on the clothing of Huscarls, Norse Warriors and bowmen.
- base VMC972 light green blue - GW Nuln oil wash - lighten with a mixture of VMC972 + VMC 918 ivory - keep adding VMC918 to highlight once or twice more
- base VGC097 pale yellow - GW Nuln oil wash - lighten with a mixture of VGC097 + VMC 918 ivory - keep adding VMC918 to highlight once or twice more
Soon, other recipe examples !

NORSE ARMY LIST
The first real post on the Norse army, finally.
Rather than starting from the existing list in V3 (see White Dwarf # 107 UK), I preferred to make an adaptation for the V6 / V7, my favorite versions in terms of ease of play.
So, with that in mind, I worked from the mercenary list, the cult of Ulric, and a very functional list, searchable at LE VERRAH RUBICON DE VERENA, a French site full of resources.
The objective was to make the list stick with my collection ... and here is the result (sorry, in french only. All comments welcome!).
Now the first painted figures ! With a few archers, and the beginning of the Huscarls.
If I rather like the color scheme, it is clear that my painting method is too slow. I open a test phase (airbrush, white undercoat ...) to try to "revolutionize" my habits ...!

MORE BATTLE CHARIOTS
First post of the year ... Happy new year to all ! ... Better than 2020? We will see...
I ended the year by completing two more goblin battle chariots.
My army of goblins is almost complete. I should paint a snotling pump wagon, some snotlings bases, and a unit of half-orcs ....
However, I am thinking of alternating painting sessions with a whole new project ... a Norsca army!
Some models are old citadel references (the vikings and barbarians) still available at Wargames Foundry.
I have to think about the color schemes, the banners ... and the army list (V6 / V7). I'm thinking of mixing between the cult of Ulric list and a simple but effective list available on the excellent french site "LE VERRAH RUBICON DE VERENA"

GOBLIN BATTLE CHARIOT
One of the most emblematic units of the goblins army : the battle chariot !
I believe it is the first box "Regiments of renown / Machineries of Destruction" that I had, a gift of about thirty years ago. I was lucky some years ago to find another mint box on ebay, when prices weren't crazy.
I started this war chariot at the beginning of the year then the health crisis was a long painting break for me.
A small focus on the shield
