I recently came to paint up my Viking models for Saga and realised that I had  2 lots of the same Hearthguard models. The poses were pretty unique, so having the same models painted up and possibly in the same unit on the table would look silly. Two Dane axemen, two horn-blowers and such.

These models from Gripping Beast are really nice (good clean casts) and I am no great shakes as a modeller so I decided to work with the weapons and shields I had from the supplier plus a little “Green Stuff” epoxy putty. No hacking off more than a small weapon on one model.

The aim was to give each model a bit of variation in detail and then paint them in different colour schemes to draw the eye away from the striking similarities. Here are the undercoated results.
