[EN/PL] First Crusade. Historical background. Part I / I Wyprawa Krzyżowa. Tło historyczne. Część I (V&V Miniatures: Crusaders 3 set #1

Image
Hi everyone!
The next week, the weather in Poland resembles the hell that awaited the Crusaders at Hattin in 1187. It is an unmerciful heat, the dyes dry up and the swarms of mosquitoes suck your blood.
Well, I already have an introduction and with this smooth metaphor I can go to this today's entry ;-))

        I took another set from V&V Miniatures for the workshop. This time "Crusaders 3"box, with the title Crusaders.
Models, as I have mentioned many times, are made of resin and look perfectly.
Beautiful quality and a multitude of details only emphasize the values of figurines.

Previous entries with the Pilgrims' models from V&V Miniatures were about the events of the so-called The People's Expedition / Folk Crusade, which immediately preceded the First Crusade.

[EN/PL] Peloponnesian War #2 / Wojna Peloponeska #2 (Mortal Gods: Athenian Hoplites #1)

Image
Hello everyone!
Today I continue painting the Athenian army to the Mortal Gods system.
I invite you to see the first base of Hoplites. My Athenians will have a coherent motif on the shield in the form of owls. I leave the dials more elaborately for the Mercenary Hoplites painted for them at the same time.

Characteristic. Part II.
The very beginning of the conflict was inauspicious for Athens. Sparta decided to use the tactics of destruction, hoping that this would lead to a swift conclusion of peace.
Spartans invaded Attica and during the harvest they destroyed farmland and burned buildings.

       In addition, an epidemic broke out in Athens. Pericles died in 429 BC by the disease that also reached him. After the death…

[EN/PL] Averland. Part III: Halfling Scouts / Niziołki zwiadowcy

Hello to you!
Today the fourth part of the meeting with brave band from Averland, and more specifically with two halflings in the service of this state.
       Some time ago I bought two archival models of the Games Workshop of small men and it's time to attach them to painted early soldiers.
I invite you!

"In the opinion of limited inhabitants of the Empire, halflings are cooks or thieves - or they perform both professions at once .."
Averland is neighbour to the Moot, the Halfling province. In 1707 the Orc Warlord Gorbad Ironclaw invaded through the Black Fire pass and the Moot was devasta…

[EN/PL] Dwarf crossbowmen / Krasnoludzcy kusznicy

Image
I warmly welcome!
As part of the rest from the historical projects of the Crusaders and Ancient Greece,  two classic models of dwarf crossbowmen today.

As there are many non-original models, and copy-lovers (who admit it themselves!), I would like to point out that my little ones are 100% original GW models, actually Marauder Miniatures. Both designs come from 1990, and were sculpted by Aly Morrison and Colin Dixon.

The first dwarf could successfully serve at one of the royal troops as a commander in the years of splendor of dwarven kingdoms. Now he can be the captain of imperial crossbowmen, bitterly mentioning old times.A second crossbowman with a different appearance from his companion, which I expressed in a different painting, looks like a hunter or ranger from Tyrol or other mountain region of Germany and Switzerland.

Both models I like very much both models, have huge tracts of charm (which is not to be found in AoS or WFB from edition 7 up) and will proudly feed the ranks of my Dw…
