28 mm Copplestone's barbarians

I just finished painting a unit of 20 barbarians that I will use for WHF 3rd edition Norse army or as Chaos thugs as well. These figures were sculpted by Mark Copplestone for Grenadier long ago but they are still a great purchase nowadays. 


You can buy all these figures at Forlorn Hope Miniatures for 30 GBP. A bargain compared to other fantasy miniatures, especially taking into account they are all different poses and full of character.

I primed them with Army Painter Barbarian Flesh primer and then washed them with Army Painter soft and strong tones. The magnetic bases are from Sally 4th.



I also will use some of them as berserkers for my Viking army...


...or as Conans for some CROM games. The one on the left could be a young Conan storming Fort Venarium and the one on the right a more mature Conan after visiting some cities in the South.


I am seriously thinking about buying a cavalry regiment for my Chaos army.

    1. Cheers Jay. I have my doubts at basing as I usually go the easy method of flocking.
