Will we be there when the End Times come?
I have been thrilled by Scandinavian folklore, especially the End Times, where all the gods and heroes meet their fate. Fascinating as it is, I always envisioned the Ragnarok, the final battle as the peak of their mythology. I tried to create dioramas about this subject in 28mm, but those didn't feel right for me - that scale lacks the detail you'd need to emphasize the grit of the warriors involved.
As my acquaintances know my obsession of vikings and miniatures, last year a dear friend of mine sculpted a 75mm scale viking warrior in my likeness for my birthday, to start my Ragnarok collection. This year I want to travel to Norway for a research trip with my family, and to fund our travels I'd like to offer you a resin cast of the Ragnarok Viking, the first in my line of Scandinavian figures.

We had to get the right vehicle to meet the needs of my work and my big family. The perfect choice was a Volkswagen Transporter 2, that my father bought in 2009 from the junkyard.
It took us six years of constant repairs to finally be able to use it. You can find more information about this process on our Facebook page: Döcögő
Meet our family of ten: My two daughters, my wife, my brother and his fiancée, my sister and her friend, our parents, beside myself
After we took a few short trips, my family decided to help me fulfil my desire, and this September we our destination will be Norway. We aim to reach Nordkapp, the northernmost part of Europe. We intend to take the 9000km trip in 16 days - our truck may not be fast, but has a high endurance!
I wish to be able to gather enough funds, as this miniature is my way to contribute to the cost of our travel. I'll spend every cent of profit on this.
I hope this campaign will satisfy everybody - you will receive a nice miniature, and we can reach a wonderful country.
