[MOC] Viking Longship

Recommended Posts

After the Sea Hawk I didn't want to do another ship anytime soon, and I've actually been working on a massive (well, for my flat anyway) Black Falcons castle for the past several months. But I wanted a break from that today so I knocked up this Viking longship. It's not as polished as the Hawk (and the same goes for the photos), but not bad for an afternoon's work, I think!

Are you shooting for historically accurate? If so, the vikings did not have horns on their helmets. The sail is perfect, you even added the rigging.

No, not really. I'm an archaeologist actually, so I know all about the lack of horns. I just wanted to include the one official Viking figure I have, though. As a plus for historical accuracy, the crew includes female warriors.

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone. It's a very simple build, obviously, but I like it. And I am pleased with the figurehead and tail.
