This is a third girl from my "Goodbye, Warhammer fantasy battles" line. Originally made out of great Nutsplanet shieldmaiden kit, now she continues as Norska Chaos Maiden. Most of my inspiration comes from classic Adrian Smith art. You may remember it - that was on plastic chaos marauders box. Muscle-bounded men, wearing fur cloaks, fang necklaces, horned helmets (and some, uh... BDSM - looking stuff) going to kill some Empire wussies with those oversized axes and picks. But, sometimes, i guess, norse girls are up to that fun too. Surely. It`s boring to sat home, raising children and cooking proteine-rich food, knowing that THE MEN having all the glory on the gaming table.
So, here she is. All the progress can be seen on my Patreon account

  • Josh "Zozimus" Pattison

    Just unbelievably good…..the attention to detail is what makes it shine.  The feeling of a blush coming from underneath her skin, rather than being painted on top of it.  The weave of her clothes.  Love the choice of colours too.

    Love it.  There’s so much to look at. The metal work. The leather. The tattoos.  I like that leather strap that hangs of the shield, avery nicely done.

    I wont mention the snag hazards around the edge of the shield… ;-)

    It’s a Gold from me.


    Absolutely amazing paint work. The skin tones are beautiful and the tattoos are perfectly symmetrical!  Def-gold!
