Gripping Beast are bringing another hero from the Dark Age back to life on the tabletop with Cnut The Great who comes on foot and mounted, massive axe at the ready to hold off his foes.

Cnut The Great - Gripping Beast

As the mighty monarch who divided up England into Wessex, East Anglia, Mercia and Northumbria he was the one who cemented his rule in Britain firmly, giving over titles to Danish followers whilst being ruthlessly punishing to those of Anglo-Saxon stock.

Still, despite this, he was able to heal relations with the Anglo-Saxons by marrying his daughter to the Duke Of Normandy and converting to Christianity.

Cnut The Great Mounted - Gripping Beast

When he eventually returned to Norway and conquered it he earned the title of Cnut The Great and remained a powerful monarch right up until his death. Cnut has a masterful legacy and you can see that represented here in this very strong miniature.

Whilst I hate painting horses I actually think the mounted version of him is better here. I think there's a little more detail to work with and the stance works better too.

Will you be picking up Cnut The Great?
