Wargames Illustrated has added another mighty model into the mix for their Giants In Miniature range. Here we have Beowulf, the stalwart warrior who was able to defeat Grendel, Grendel's Mother and a mighty dragon (amongst other villains) throughout his life.

Giants Beowulf #1 - Wargames Illustrated

Here is some of the information that was shared by Wargames Illustrated about their interpretation of Beowulf...

"Beowulf and his saga are perhaps one of the best-known tales from the Scandanavian lands. In many ways, Beowulf is the template used by pretty much every hero created in fiction ever since. Brave, strong, noble and a consummate warrior, he inspires others, with his followers being true friends rather than just an entourage.

Yet he’s also slightly flawed – he likes the idea of fame and glory when young, although after he becomes king, he is described as a good servant to his people. Our version of Beowulf is largely based upon the imagination of the sculptor, with some reference to the many pieces of artwork created over the years."

This is a pretty neat looking sculpt for this hero who, as they have said above, inspired the deeds of many others throughout literature. I think he would be fun for those looking to dive into a Fantastical take on the Dark Age.

Giants Beowulf #2 - Wargames Illustrated

As with other releases for this range, the release will be limited to 500 pieces so once they have gone, they are gone. If you'd like to snag yourself a rather ace Beowulf and then use him across all manner of games then this would be well worth snapping up as a pre-order.

Are you going to be picking up this miniature?
