Footsore Miniatures & Games has added another Viking legend into the mix for those playing the likes of SAGA. Here we have their take on the mighty Ragnar Lodbrok/Lothbrok.

Ragnar Lodbrok #1 - Footsore Miniatures

Whilst Ragnar Lodbrok is known in the sagas for being a mighty Viking leader there's little to suggest he actually existed beyond the stories. In the sagas, he was known for raids in Francia and against the Anglo-Saxons as well as the Sack Of Paris. Stories say that he was eventually killed by King Ælla of Northumbria who threw him into a pit of snakes.

Ragnar Lodbrok #2 - Footsore Miniatures

It could well be the fact that the stories of Ragnar were perhaps even made up based on the exploits of many different individuals but collected under the single name in order to build up the mythology behind the man. There is no doubting however that Ragnar's Sons did form part of the Great Heathen Army which stormed its way across England and eventually was held to a truce thanks to Alfred The Great.

Will you be adding Ragnar into your army?
