Classic Minis Revisited - Viking (Wizards & Lizards)

This is one of my earliest miniatures that I bought as a kid.  I'm guessing around '83 or '84, the Viking is from Superior Models fantasy line "Wizards & Lizards".   Being a "Son of Thor" I've always been interested in Vikings and Norse mythology, so naturally I had to pick this up at my favorite FLGS at the time Royal Hobbies in Rockford, IL.   They are still in business by the way, they've been around for almost as long as I have been alive, which is awesome since a lot of the classic hobby and game stores have bit the dust.
This guy has gone through quite a few different paint jobs, and a few months ago I decided to strip it and give it one last paint job.  I'll be posting more classic repaints over the next few posts.


  1. Great mini and the fresh paint looks great!

  2. Excellent old school mini nicely painted. My first figure was a Ral Partha Dwarf of the Blue Mountains who made it through the dungeon in the old Blue D&D book.

  3. Thanks Mike. I'm a fan of the Holmes edition as well, it's probably my favorite older edition that I have.
