Ok I am not sure if this goes here or not, but... Can be moved to dear lego or LEGO castle sets catagorie if neccessary.
Ok, here is my idea, which is a to start a project, and perhaps put it on cuusoo if we want, of creating a wave or two of a LEGO Vikings 2.0 theme. There seems to be a lot of enthusiasm about this among many members, and I thought, well, I cant really count on TLG for anything, so I am building it myself. Now, one thing I would love is if some other members here want, they can design some sets/mocs of their own for it, and post them here, so we can get a relatively large scale theme up maybe. This is just largely for the fun of designing what you would want lego to have in vikings if they ever reintroduced the theme. Make a set as you would like to see it.
There are TONS of norse creatures still not made into sets. I have a list here of some I know of that I have pulled from memory and the internet. You an build these if you want and pair them with a viking tower/fortress/boat/siege weapon or something, like they did in the old sets. Or you can build a more historically accurate viking raid or hall or something of the like. Really do anything viking related you would like to see/have seen in vikings 1.0.Dragons:
jormungand (sometimes classed as a serpent)
There is a dragon at the end of Beowulf called "the firedrake"
Grendel (sometimes classed as a troll)
And there are tons of non-nordic european dragons to use, such as:
Grendel (sometimes classed as a dragon)
Andvari (giant pike-fish)
Jormungand (sometimes classed as a dragon)wolves:
Gullinbursti, who is a giant monstrous boar with golden spikes.
Surtr, a fire giant
There are also of course such norse races as Elves, Dwarves and Valkyries, not to mention other places in norse mythology, if you are going more for the legendary aspect as opposed to the historical one. Viking settlements could be fun to build too. Anyway, I will be doing this and it will be all the greater if any other viking theme enthusiasts would like to join in. Everyone can post your finished designs in this thread.
If we want, we can post some or all of them on cuusoo in the unlikely hope of 10,000 supporters
