Ragnarok Miniatures‘ Sons of Odin Vikings Figuren
Gripping Beast bringen eine neue Kollektion an Vikingern für Saga heraus.
Sculptor Colin Patten brings a massive Viking Feast of what he considers his best sculpts to date. Over 150 brand new Viking minis covering every troop type you could want and including two full 6 point Saga warbands, a mega interactive shieldwall and a must have collection of characters from your favourite Icelandic Sagas!
Vikings are by far the most popular Dark Age army because they can be used in so many different conflicts and against such a variety of opponents….even on many occasions against each other! As part of the Anglo-Danish army against Hadrada at Stamford bridge, in the internecine wars in Ireland where the original Norwegian invaders known as the „Finngaill‘ were attacked by Danish invaders known as the „Dubgaill“ and again in Norway where the recent convert to Christianity, King Olaf attempted to enforce his new religion on his pagan Earl’s which lead to the epic battle of ‚Sticklestad‘.
This range is suitable for use with SAGA: Age of Vikings (Vikings), SAGA: Age of Magic (The Great Kingdoms).
Presenting our interactive Dark Age Shieldwall sets. Just begging to be made the centerpiece of your battle board or turned into a diorama masterpiece! Each shieldwall is comprised of ’standing‘ (rear rank) and ‚ready‘ (front rank) positions, both armoured and unarmoured. In addition, there is an 8 pack of ‚Arrow storm defenders‘ which all have their shields at various non-standard heights varying from the foot to way above the head. By mixing these figures you can create some super realistic set pieces! The larger 56 Full shieldwall set includes our hugely popular 16 figure Viking Casualty Set which allows even more exciting combinations to be made!
Colin has sculpted two 6 point Saga Warbands to represent the two groups of Vikings that warred against each other in Dark Age Ireland and known as the Dubgaill and the Finngaill. All Vikings of that period would have been essentially indistinguishable from each other in appearance and any of the packs shown here can be used to represent any of the different Viking Nations on the tabletop. That said we have tried to capture some subtle differences by making the Norwegian Dubgaill a bit more furry, hairy and Pagan looking and the Danish Finngaill a bit more Christian, neat and orderly. Also the composition of the two Warbands are different from each other, the Norwegian being a standard Viking Saga Warband while the Danish one undergoing a bit of Anglo influence, with an additional 1pt of warriors in place of the usual levy archers and a point of Dane Axe Hearthguard taking the place of the berserkers. See details below.
Viking Casualty Set
Set comprises 16 mixed figures along with weapons and shields. Please note banner not included.
Saga Character Sets
Fantastic sets of characters and heroes from the beloved Icelandic Saga Literature, with special emphasis on most peoples favourite ‚Njals saga‘. The burning of Njals Homestead and the Battle of the Althing were the highlights of this book and by adding additional individual packs especially the ‚Icelanders‘ you have everything you need to game these scenarios. We had intended to bring out a resin Icelandic turf homestead model, farm animals and agricultural labourer/slave packs in time for this campaign, however we have decided to forge ahead with this one and it’s our intention to make the „Njals farmestead set“, the centrepiece of our next one! Giving you enough time to get your Icelanders painted up and ready to go!
