oops ! it has been a while since I did some work or gaming for this period
I picked up some rowers off Ebay earlier in the year, these have been sitting on the modelling desk waiting for action.
The rowers had been provided with some 'seats' made up of 3 layers of thin plywood and I've fitted them with some oars from the Revell viking ship kit; in addition I tweaked a civilian figure to look like he is at the steering oar.
Here they are in one of my larger ships - they'll do for effect
