Andi, great figures, as all,previous sets...

Are you planing maybe some viking shield maidens? That would be a must-have for many of us for sure!!

Well, is there any historical evidence for shield maiden? I cannot find anything in my sources. ;-)

Well, actually it is difficult to find a real historical evidence, but you can find these women in many Sagas , and even a pair or episodres written by medieval chronists like danish Saxo Grammaticus (battle of Bravellir)
Here two interestng and well documented links

Even if maybe not a big evidence in that, for me it is appealing, and these little chapters make the concept for me even more attractive :):)

Ok, let's take Kathleen O'Neal Gear and Michael Gear's as source.
What would shield maiden have looked like, if they really existed?

“There were once women in Denmark who dressed themselves to look like men and spent almost every minute cultivating soldiers’ skills. …They courted military celebrity so earnestly that you would have guessed they had unsexed themselves. Those especially who had forceful personalities or were tall and elegant embarked on this way of life. As if they were forgetful of their true selves they put toughness before allure, aimed at conflicts instead of kisses, tasted blood, not lips, sought the clash of arms rather than the arm’s embrace, fitted to weapons hands which should have been weaving, desired not the couch but the kill…”

For me this is not the description for Lagertha from Vikings, for me it's more like Iceborg from fifth element:

Indeed a good answer!
This Iceborg Looks actually like a badass figther.. if Latjgertha existed probably she would have looked similar to her, not the sexy tv versión :)

Well, I shot already my suggestion for Kamar poll hehehe
Nice weekend to eveybody still!
