When I was to Salute 2015 I, Jonas and Dan mersey visited the British Museum. Dan gave us a realy good and interesting guided tour and also gave us each a replica of the Lewis Chess Piece "The Berserker" as a gift. Sins I got it from Dan I have always wanted to use it for some Viking wargaming project, but I havent got around doint anything about it untill this summer. At first I thought I would do a stone statue of of him but then I got the idee of a more daring build, there I would turn the chess piece in to a Cult place for Odin, after all Odin was the good for the Berserkers, so I modeled it as sculped direct out of an old oak.
Unfortunate my camera broke down so all my WIP pictures was lost, but here you have a bunch of pictures of the finished model.
I planned to post these pictures about a week ago but was interupted by a phone call... my son David and my wife had been in a severe car accident, some dude thought it was a good ideea to skip a stop sign, so my wife and son hit his car right in the side in 90km/hour... I have spent the last week at the hospital with my Son thant got the most severe injuries of the two. My beloved wife got a fracture in her foot and ofcours a real beating by the crach, David broke an arm, fractured a finger on the other arm, got face damages, fractured jaw, 3 teeths dislocated, a minor damage on the liver and a general beateing by the crach so he had to have intensive care and several operations fixing his arm, teths, the liver damage they had under observation for a week and there was no need for surgery.. It seems like we can go home from the hospital tomorrow, he are bored so I guess he is recovered quiet well considering all damages. I´m so glad they survived at all in that speed.
