The Vikings are coming!
Actually, they are already here, the Vikings minifig gallery is now live...
The Vikings sets successfully combined models that were pretty good in terms of historical accuracy and creatures from Norse mythology: dragons, serpents and wolves. The five sets released in 2005 were excellent; the two from 2006 not so, in my opinion. I had to BrickLink some of the figs from 2006 since I don't have both sets. The gallery is complete and includes all minifigs from regular sets, but it does exclude the glued ones in the chess set which were probably made in China and therefore of no interest to me.
