Join Harald’s Varangian Guard In SAGA

September 27, 2015 by brennon

Gripping Beast have shown off a soon to be released unit that is quite fitting considering Friday was the fall of Harald Hardrada. See what you think of his Varangian Guard from his younger days…

Young Haralds Varangian Guard #1

These would have been the warriors that Harald took with him when he went off on his travels and fought for the Byzantine Emperor. They were richly rewarded for their ferocious fighting prowess.

Varangian Guard #2

You can see that the models are slightly more ‘exotically’ armoured and this set gives you both a unit of warriors with sword and shield and a second wielding massive dane axes.

Varangian Guard #3

There are of course rules for you to pick up this army and use them in your games of SAGA. With Friday marking the death of this legendary Viking king it is good to see his younger days remembered by Gripping Beast.
