This is a collection of links to a question on Facebook.

‘Are there any good resources for Vikings/Norse Gael painting schemes?’

The ones that are collected here are:

A collection of resources on the Studio/Tomahawk forum:, this is for Dark Age in general.

Another general Dark Age colour palette can be found at the 1000 Foot General blog:, this is a nice article which links the palette with different commercial model paint colours.

There is a nice painting/colour guide from Crusader Miniatures:, some nice tips and paint recommendations.

Viking Painter has another guide: which is more specific to Vikings and Hearthguard, but it isn’t a general palette just a painting guide.

Then there are the Osprey books in the Warrior and Men at Arms series.
