Sunjade Viking Set No. 31 - Swordsman w/Horned Helm #2 - Black SP

Similar to yesterday's Sunjade Swordsman, this pose has the sword in an upright position vs. behind him as if he were ready to strike. Today's warrior is wearing his scabbard on the right side vs, yesterday's figure who was wearing it on his left side Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

Sunjade Viking Set No. 31 - Swordsman w/Horned Helm #1 - Black SP

Here's what we've come to think of as a 'traditional' Viking toy with that Wagnerian Opera horned helmet. For the money these aren't bad poses overall. The horns irk a lot of people who strive for accuracy, while others think they lend an old fashioned toy look to the figures. I was going to get rid of my Sunjade figures but had a change of heart when noticing that they'll work just fine alongside Play Along Toys AOME LOTR figures. I may even keep the horns on because after all, like those horns, LOTR was total fantasy not historical fact. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

Sunjade Viking Set No. 31 - Chariot

You know, I'm okay with the siege cannon and weapons rack because I can pull them out of the set and use them with my knights. But this chariot is junk. Sorry, that's how I feel. It was a waste of time and money putting it in the bag. That being said, it should still have a place among the other set contents in our photo essays and the Viking Axman with long ax is really nice so here goes folks. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

That eagle looks more like something that belongs on a football helmet than on an ancient chariot

















I could have chosen any of the foot soldiers to display with this chariot but just thought this guy looked cool. Would he have been successful wielding this large ax in a moving chariot? Dunno, but I like it just the same.
