Box art / display piece for Model Display Products.
One of a rare number of historical pieces I get to work on The Marauder is something special. The Marauder is a 36 part resin kit in 90mm scale the kit includes 2 heads, two helmets (pig helm or standard Viking helm) that fit either head and 3 right arms allowing the modeller to assemble the figure as 4 different figures either as a Marauding Viking or as a Saxon, weapon/arm options include axe, spear and sword.
I chose to go for the classic combo of a big shaggy bearded head with the pig helm and a great huge axe. This model gave me the opportunity to work with a verity of textures. The leathers were painted with Life Colour Leather Set which offers a fanatic range of warm and cold browns for a battered aged look. The wood was created with Scale 75's Wood set which are slightly harder to use but offer a breadth of rich colours it's hard to turn down.
