"Lift high the Raven banner".

My Norwegian Hird for Warhammer Ancient Battles.

by Steve Evans.

I find when it comes to collecting a army for any game system may it be Fantasy, WAB or any of the others you always end up turning to your one true love in that system. Be it their tactic's, models or their image to me you know that it's right for you, this is how I feel about my Vikings.

When i first started playing Ancients i toyed with a few different armies and don't get me wrong they played well but they just didn't feel right,i knew deep down i wanted a Viking army. So when the opportunity came along to get my hands on said army i jumped at the chance.

2,000pts tournement army Army General, The Jarl Army Standard, The much feared Raven banner
Ulfhednar, "that iron cannot bite" frenzied skirmishers Hirdmen, the back bone of this army, being the Norwegian hird they are light infantry so may skirmish Thralls, slave skirmishing warriors from the subject peoples of the Norse empire
 
Beserkers, crazed individuals who worked themselves into a homicidal fury Godi, a pagan priest of the Norse gods  

The army took about 8 months to paint and has done me proud in the tournament scene with a couple of top 10 finishes.But it crowning glory was winning a players choice painting award at the WPS WAB GT in 2003.
