Gripping Beast has been previewing a look at one of their new Legendary Heroes for SAGA: Age Of Vikings. Here we have Owen I, King Of Strathclyde for you to drop into the mix.

Owen I King Of Strathclyde Mounted - Gripping Beast

He reminds me a lot of the miniature for Thorongil (an alias of Aragorn) that Games Workshop worked on years ago but never put out. He looks very cool though, his horse rearing up as he gets his men ready for battle against the enemy.

There are two versions of the model that you'll get in the set. The first is mounted above whilst the second takes to the field on foot with javelin at the ready to throw at his foes.

If you're looking to build up a Welsh force then this fellow would be a great option. He was a great tactician and cunning leader, so perfect for some ambushes against the Saxons and invading Viking forces threatening your borders.

The sculpt here is by Angel Terol and it looks superb. There is a lot of movement and dynamism in it which is great, perfect for someone leading the charge in a skirmish-based wargame.

Will you be adding King Owen into the mix?
