for this miniature I had a go at custom decal printing for the artwork one shield and painted some details over the top to give it a weathered and painted on appearance this was done as display piece with a larger base then the one it came with and I painted the metallic parts in non-metallic paint scheme

Interesting figure. What was he? The Hemet looks Norman.

Harold Hardradda was a Viking :orc:
Harald Sigurdsson, given the epithet Hardrada in the sagas, was King of Norway from 1046 to 1066. In addition, he unsuccessfully claimed the Danish throne until 1064 and the English throne in 1066.
