Vikings: Norse Raiders 8th to 11th Century! The Viking Age was the period from the 790's to 1066 when Germanic Norse seafarers raided and traded along the northern coast of Europe from their Scandinavian homeland. With advanced seafaring skills characterized by the long ship, the Norsemen explored, expanded, and formed settlements across a wide area reaching as far as the north eastern coast of North America to the west and Russia to the east.
Similar in concept to our Roman Testudo, the figures have been designed with interlocking bases to allow collectors to really set them up very close together to get the effect of a true Viking shieldwall. In addition, the 12 different figures, each with a unique shield pattern, can be setup in any way that a collector wants, thus offering great flexibility in terms of the composition and size of your display. And finally, by mixing in existing previous releases of other figures, you can represent areas where a section of the shieldwall is engaged or has been broken into by inserting those other figures into a section of the shieldwall.
