Lagertha steps into the battle for the future of the Aesir and Vanir with her ability to protect her troops. She is able to call on her Shield Wall power which gives a defence bonus to allied units in her area. She can also use a Block ability to force the opponent to reroll dice too. To this end, there are a couple of version of Lagertha in the box.

The first miniature of her comes with a shield at the ready, showing off her role as a protector. She also has a different sculpt where she holds aloft the head of one a defeated enemy.

Both of these look very cool indeed and give you a few different options. It is neat to see that Lagertha has managed to fight her way into the public consciousness thanks to the Vikings TV show. She is certainly an impressive figure in the sagas and whilst she was unlikely a historical figure, she did bring the spirit of Thorgerd to life!

"I. Am. Beowulf!"

As well as Lagertha, the team at Monolith has also previewed the mighty hero Beowulf. This warrior might have been battling years before the golden era of the Vikings but he has been recalled to the battlefield to fight alongside the gods during Ragnarok.

Most will be familiar with the tale of Beowulf. A mighty warrior; he was able to defeat the beast Grendel and save Hrothgar's Hall its terror. Gifted with riches he then defeated Grendel's Mother and became a king. Sneaky artwork shows off Beowulf fighting Grendel's Mother so one would assume she is coming down the pipeline too.

With shield and sword at the ready, Beowulf is posed as if he is fending off a terrible foe and getting ready to sink his blade into its guts! As a monster slayer, that is very much the role that Beowulf fulfils on the tabletop.

He can use Hrunting to inflict terrible wounds on his foes in-game that cannot be negated or modified. He can also switch to his sword Naegling which allows you to convert blank dice rolls on his first assault to do maximum damage.
