Actually, should say fantasy Dark Ages because the idea of shield maidens is pretty much fantasy with no real evidence to support it.

You are right but I only print them the designer takes the historical license. But thank you for your comment. All are good :)

I quite like the Vendel era Norse.
I think the (Vendel era Norse) are also available in metal from the designer at Medbury miniatures on Facebook.

@Grattan54 So you don't think much of the new scholarship claiming that shield maidens were real? What are your objections, if I may ask?

"Shieldmaidens" likely fantasy. Women warriors likely reality.
The problem for designers is that a woman in armor and a man in armor can look much the same. Especially at miniature scale.

Can't argue with history but what the heck :)
