In support of the new ‘universe’ book for SAGA: Age of Magic, Gripping Beast have released their first sets of fantasy figures, showcased at Salute 2019.
For the ‘Undead Legion’ we have Skeleton Warriors (12 in total), Hearthguard with hand weapons and Hearthguard with ‘Great Weapons’ (12 in total) and a Warlord.
GB have also re-released and added to their range some medieval zombie types, previously known as Revenants, now going by the rather self-deprecating title of ‘Mindless’ – seen below.
For the Great Kingdoms (as defined in Age of Magic), we have some packs of Shiledmaidens – Viking style. Although these 16 warriors, 8 Hearthguard, 4 Berserkers and Warlord do have a fantasy edge, they will of course work perfectly well in historical games that allow for Shiledmaidens.
We continue to be impressed by the sculpts and quality of the castings coming out of Gripping Beast lately and this latest batch are no exception, showing great detail, style and production quality.
