I’ve finally finished up this little warband of chaotic barbarians, sculpted by Jes Goodwin for Asgard in the mid 80s and released as a box set called “Barbarian Personalities“. They are now being manufactured and sold by Alternative Armies and are quite a bargain. The ogre is another Goodwin sculpt, from Citadel’s C23 range. The astute reader will remember when I posted about receiving these guys. I’m very happy to have them finished the same year I got them! They were all painted by Paul “v2″ Sanderson, and a great job he did! I can not recommend the man enough. Fast, well painted, very communicative and all round top bloke! I finished the bases and took the photos, but that’s about all I did.

Here’s the roster for the whole happy gang! I’ve used their names as given by Asgard, and tried to make all models individual stats wise. It’ll be a challenging warband to play, due to them being all different.

Kern the Reaver (60 pts). Q3, C3. Leader


Clonar Sternbrow
(27 pts). Q4, C3. Group fighter

Alaric Mancleaver (30 pts). Q4, C4.

Koth Beasthelm (35 pts). Q4, C4. Savage

Hax Ragged (35 pts). Q4, C4. Heavy armour

Taran Firedaughter (38 pts). Q3, C3. Berserk

Will Skegling (30 pts). Q3, C3.

Mad Rollo (23 pts). Q4, C3.

Arflane the Archer (44 pts). Q3, C3. Shooter: long

Aurok Storrirkin (46 pts). Q3, C4. Steadfast

Skai Wolfbane (36 pts). Q3, C3. Forrester


Two Cuts
(36 pts). Q3, C3. Stealth

Old One-Horn (54 pts). Q4, C4. Big, Long move, Mutant.

Once again I feel the need to apologize for my photos. I still haven’t gotten to grips with the new camera, and struggle with both lighting and focus. Oh well, in time I think they’ll shape up.

These guys really help my annual total, which is now 84 painted – 254 acquired = -170! I did receive a few snotlings the other day (cheers Ti!), but I’m not including them in the annual total as they’re crew for the pump wagon which is in itself one model only. I also traded some snotlings away, so I guess it all evens out.

  1. Great bunch of old models,
    indeed old miniatures never die :)

  2. Superb work on these venerable minis, Phreedh. The photos work well for me, too.

  3. Lovely paint jobs on classic minis. I remember when these came out along with the dwarf set as well. Chin dropping sculpts at the time and they still look great today.

    • Cheers Dave! You know of any pics of the dwarf set? Were they sculpted by Goodwin too? I saw some dwarfs on Viking Forge that looked rather Goodwin-y.

  4. For us American folk, Viking Forge also sells these guys for cheap! http://www.thevikingforge.net/index.html

    Great paint jobs as always. :)

    • True that, Viking Forge have a lot of other interesting things too!

      Please note, I didn’t paint these guys! I had them painted for me by Paul v2 (from Frothers etc).

  5. I’ve admired these over on Frothers – a lovely addition to the collection.
