Product Description

Vikings had a feudal system in their Scandinavian culture in Western Europe, so the land was often owned by the local Jarl or King and he gifted it to his loyal subjects, as long as they were loyal and paid tribute.

Chieftains were less than Jarls, usually strong leaders that inspired their raiding parties to cross a hostile ocean, face foreign enemies and stand with them in the face of opposition. Loyalty was key to their success.

A fair and generous Chief gained more swords to his cause, and perhaps might become a Jarl himself some day.

They wore the best armour and richly embroidered cloaks and often carried a double handed axe, a favourite weapon of these fierce people. They had their Huscarls as personal bodyguards and they got to decide how the loot was shared afterwards, chosing the best pieces for themselves. However a selfish or foolish Chief could be deposed by a stronger warrior at any time so it was important to curry favour with your warriors and people.

The Chief is one of our most popular 40mm scale rubber moulds, you should cast about 4 of them from a single ingot of metal. You can use this figure as alternative Huscarls or Mercenaries too if you wish, to add further diversity to a raiding party. Just choose different painting choices, perhaps less ornate than the Chief's painting to set him apart.

Without at least our Viking starter kit you will not be able to cast with this mould as no accessories are included. You should also stock up on metal as we offer bulk metal discounts.
