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.
