The Vikings, because of their land and use of boats, had scouts on the beaches to watch into the sea looking for ships coming to raid, for war, returning from a raid, to trade, or simple fishing boats.
Nice job! The SNOT water was more of a loss than a win for me. Though I appreciate the detail of including the white foam in the water, if you had drawn the line a little closer to the shore I think it could've looked better. Other than my personal nitpicks the MOC is great.
