The Vikings (from Old Norse v?kingr) were seafaring north Germanic people who raided, traded, explored, and settled in wide areas of Europe, Asia, and the North Atlantic islands from the late 8th to the mid-11th centuries. The Vikings employed wooden longships with wide, shallow-draft hulls, allowing navigation in rough seas or in shallow river waters. The ships could be landed on beaches, and their light weight enabled them to be hauled over portages. These versatile ships allowed the Vikings to travel as far east as Constantinople and the Volga River in Russia, as far west as Iceland, Greenland, and Newfoundland, and as far south as Nekor.
Now you too can re-create this important chapter in North European history with the Viking Longship, proudly brought to you by Mortem Vetus. Depict these historical figures as explorers, invaders, traders or raiders, the choice is yours.
The Viking Longship is presented here as a cr2 figure, enabling it to have fully poseable oars (all 16 of them). It is also a rather large figure, so we would recommend using RuntimeDNA’s Terradome with Aquazone for atmospheric eye-catching renders.
