Viking Shore raid

As part of a club demo game for the Border Reiver show at Newcastle in September, myself and jon are planning on a viking Shore raid. So far we have 3 longships (all 1/50 scale revell, very nice kits). I have already received a box of the plastic GB vikings, a superb kit. I have also purchased some of their villagers and livestock to add to the mix. Next need to start planning the layout of the board and make some purchases of MDF and polystyrene.

New Project

Well got started thinking for a display gamre for the Border Reiver show in Newcastle this September. Up to now Aa viking shore raid is looking the most likely, quite handy when Gripping Beast have just released their range of Plastices (purchase already made). UI'll be able to add these to the handful of metal Vikings i already have, should make about 60 warriors, enough to crew 2 longships. I know GB produce a longship but it always seems to be out of stock, need to browse the internet to see if anyone else manufactures one. don't particularily want to scratch build one.
