Musketeer Miniatures are back to sculpting again with some great looking new models. Check out their Arthurian warriors and a Northumbrian King waiting to grace the battlefield…
First up is Aella, a King of Northumbria from the 9th Century and while little is known of his rule he was seen to be a tyrant in the Sagas. Regardless of his noble line the model is pretty fantastic, embracing that windswept look as he cast an eye across the battlefield.
Next up are the brothers Hengist and Horsa, a pair of Saxon raiders from the Arthurian era. The names translate as Stallion and Horse respectively and their influence can still be seen in the gabled roofs of Germanic architecture today. These grim brothers were both mercenaries in the employ of Vortigern until they turned on the Britons during the Night of the Long Knives.
As well as looking back to the Dark Ages, Musketeer Miniatures have also been working on some Russian Cavalry Command models. Rather different from the miniatures above but no less cool.
Do any of these miniatures draw you in to the annuls of history?
