The mighty falcon headed Egyptian god of war and hunting, Horus is also considered to be a sky god and was considered a national patron god for the ancient Egyptians, and seen as their protector. Horus quickly proved himself to be a powerful and respected figure within the Egyptian panthenon. Horus is a cunning and powerful foe who towers over most other gods on the battlefield, his already massive height magnified by the swarm of scarabs that he stands atop as they move him about the battlefield.
Horus has been sculpted by talented Australian 3D artist Elijah Akouri. This 50mm multi-part metal miniature will feature as part of the Egyptian starter set due for release with our Kickstarter campaign.
Horus is the 2nd god miniature previewed for the Conquest of the Gods range, along with the Norse god Thor. We have two more gods to preview in the coming months as we draw nearer to the launch of the Conquest of the Gods Kickstarter campaign.
Born to the goddess Isis, Horus has been considered by many to have been born from an immaculate conception given that he was conceived via the use of a gold phallus. To conceive Horus, Isis retrieved all the dismembered body parts of her murdered husband Osiris (except his penis which was lost to the Nile and eaten by a catfish),before using her magic powers to resurrect Osiris and fashion a gold phallus to conceive Horus.
We now have some High res renders of Horus that will look more like the final production model!
