Viking Hersir

Four Viking Hersir by Crusader Miniatures (http://www.crusaderminiatures.com/). These were quite simplistic figures in design, but a great pleasure to paint for it. I've used LBM shield transfers for the first time which after messing up the first one I got the hang of and would highly recommend ( http://www.littlebigmenstudios.co.uk/catalog/).

The Hersir commanded between twenty and a hundred men and owed loyalty to a Jarl. Normally equipped with a conical helmet, short chain mail coat and a wooden shield but were also known to use the single and double handed axe. They would normally fight on foot at the front of the shield wall.
