Uhtred of Bebbanburg is the protagonist of the Saxon Stories series by Bernard Cornwell. A reluctant participant in Alfred the Great's fight to unite England he was as likely to fight on the side of the supposed villains the Danes, murder a priest, or act more than a little rashly as he was to save the day. I think he falls in the category of an Anti-Hero.
I used the leader figure from the Gripping Beast Thegn box-set of plastics with a couple of modifications. I sculpted some fur onto his cloak to give him a bit more savage appearance and of course modified the prominent cross on his chest to an amulet of Thor.
I couldn't remember a good description of colors from the books but I always imagined him in grays and other dull colors so I went with a sea grey for the cloak but gave him a touch of color on the hem of his jerkin. I hand painted on a wolf's head for his shield as the traditional heraldry of Bebbanburg and gave him overall a little bit of weathering to give that fresh off the battlefield look.
