Berserkers-1 Point. Berserkers are best portrayed as shirtless, even pantsless, madmen running around in an animal's hide. For the purist or pedantic, grab a box of plastic Celts and do a Viking headswap. Boom, you'll have a shirtless madman. You won't be able to use the 2 handed Danish axe though. I love the look of these guys with a huge axe so I used my GB fellows. Throwing 4 dice per figure in combat, my Beserkers are going to tear up the house!
Burkhard from the excellent dhcwargamesblog, gave me his advice on fielding berserkers: Those are the men you need to perform a surgical strike (but they will most likely only survive one or two of those) that can serve as a game winner. Hide them behind a unit with higher armor values until they get close if your opponent has ranged weapons. Sounds good to me and thanks for sharing, Burk!

|Sorry boys, the pantsless berserkers got here first.|
After years of painting 15mm, I confess that there's something deeply satisfying about working in a bigger scale. With a larger canvas, you reap a greater reward. It's much slower going, in part because I've hardly worked in this scale in years. Some of my 15mm color combos don't scale up well but with as many figures as I have to paint, there's time enough to crack the code! Skol Vikings!
