1/72 Zveda Vikings as Rohirrim

I decided to paint one sprue from the Zvezda Viking box as Rohirrim to match them with the Steppe Cavalry from Dark Alliance miniatures as they don't sell infantry from Rohan.

I think they turned out okay but I won't be painting the rest of the box as them because I also want to use these miniatures as actual Vikings and I like Vikings with not so dull colours.

These are all the miniatures contained in one sprue. The box includes three sprues like this one plus a little one with two commanding figures, a general and a standard.

An unforgiving close up showing some hand painted shields from Rohan.

This figure with the cloak is the most similar one to those from the movie.

    1. Thanks Miguel, but being Vikings they need to be more colourful IMHO :)

    1. Hi Carlos, thanks for your kind comment. I've been scanning your blog and you're having a lot of fun with the war of the ring rules so I'll have to check that ruleset. I'll be using Warrior Heroes Warbands from Two Hour Wargames once I finished painting at least two opposing factions, mainly because I'm basically a solo player.

  3. Great looking "Vikings", Javier - Zvevda makes some of the finest 1/72nd figures.

    1. Cheers Dean. Yes, I totally agree with you, Zvevda is still the best around in plastic 1/72 figures.
