Vikings & Kelts

This one is public domain, but I'm uncertain of the artist. It's pretty fitting for a Hyperborean flavour in my opinion.

This one isn't public domain. It strikes me as very Keltic; those residing along the eastern coast. Otherwise I could imagine travellers/residents of Khromarium or Swampgate appearing thus.

Re: Vikings & Kelts

Those are both great, man. I feel like taping them in my books somewhere! Who are the artists, any idea?

Re: Vikings & Kelts

I'm not sure actually. I'll try to find out though, and let you know if I discover anything!

Re: Vikings & Kelts

The first public domain piece is by Oscar Wergeland (1909). The second is from a fanmade production: Warhammer Norse. I couldn't find the original artist unfortunately.

I find this one evocative too. It's called 'A Viking Foray' by Guerber, H. A. (Hélène Adeline) also in 1909, from the same work Myths of the Norsemen from the Eddas and Sagas.
