Footsore Miniatures & Games' Andy Hobday has been showing off a new miniature which has been sculpted up by Matthew Bickley. Here we have the stunningly realised Æthelflæd, Lady Of The Mercians.

Æthelflæd was a pretty impressive character from the Dark Age period. She was the eldest daughter of Alfred The Great and commanded great respect from the men and women of Mercia who fought against the incursions of Viking armies and more. She took up a prominent role in the politics of her kingdom alongside Æthelred and even took over much of the work when he fell ill and died.

If you like the idea of Æthelflæd also taking to the battlefield then you can also get a mounted version of her too.

Now that is very, very cool indeed. I love the idea of her mounting up in the style of Eowyn (or most likely the other way around of course) and charging off into battle alongside her men as the Lady Of The Mercians. She has a very deadly look to her sculpt, unflinching in the need to hack down her foes and secure her borders for the good of Alfred and the English.

What do you make of this new model that popped up this week?
