[EN/PL] To be or not to be a Lost Children #1 / Być czy nie być Utraconym Dzieckiem #1 (Rotten Factory / Rotten Circus)

Hello everyone!
Blogs are falling, bloggers are falling into dejection, complaining and despair, but DwarfCrypt invites you to a new post every week!

Today, again thanks to the kindness of Paweł from ROTTEN FACTORY, I invite you to look at the next models from the Rotten Circus project. There were the first Cultists and today the Lost Children.
Perhaps these were true children who were kidnapped once and who under the influence of Dark forces underwent devilish metamorphosis? Or maybe they are small malicious demons, which macabre the life of knights, warriors and other adventurers in a macabre way?

My first association with the two of painted today is Hamlet by William Shakespeare.
This is my favorite work of the English poet, and the miniatures remind me of the macabre scene from Act V, when the action moves to the cemetery, where they copy the grave of two gravediggers...

- "Are they really going to give her a Christian burial after she killed herself?"
Ask first gravedigger.

[EN/PL] The thing about Gnomes / Rzecz o Gnomach (Northumbrian Tin Soldier The Beardfolk #2)

Hello everyone!
It's weekend. So there is a new entry on DwarfCrypt! I am very pleased to introduce you
Dear visitors, another two dwarves from the "Beardfolk" series received from David from Northumbrian Tin Soldier
This time is a Shaman and beard warrior miniatures.

Today I would like to tell a little about the history of Gnomes in European folklore.
Gnomes, creatures similar to Dwarves and Kobolds. And I could end it, because ... gnomes have never been in legends and myths :)

       In the XV century, a physician, charlatan and alchemist known under the pseudonym Paracelsus invented the gnomes as a manifestation of the Earth Elemental. There is nothing about hooded dwarves, miners and treasures hidden deep underground. These Elementals turned into stone after contact with the sun's rays.
Known for fantasy, today's gnomes, is the invention of nineteenth-century writers. At that time, the American Nathaniel Hawthrone in the collection Twice-Told Tales from 1837 determi…

[EN/PL] Messe Noire: Rotten Cultists #2 / Messe noire: Zgnili Kultyści #2 (Rotten Factory / Rotten Circus)

Hello all!
I invite you today to the entry dedicated to one of the most terrifying satanic ritual in history. Something has been said about this rite. The facts are mixed with conjectures and legends. And how did the clergy describe this in the Middle Ages?

Before I pass this entry, I will give my voice to Paweł, the main originator and sculptor from
ROTTEN FACTORY, thanks to which we can admire today another painted cultist from the ROTTEN CIRCUS project.

 "I didn't expect that the campaign will have such an end! The amount of great support and motivating messages was huge. I remember working with Patrick on next concepts based on Rotten Family suggestions while the campaign was still open. Addictive experience.
At this moment I'm still working on this project, and try to sculpt as fast as I can despite daily duties. I'm looking forward to the moment when all miniatures will be finished and sent. I have a quiet hope, all backers will be as happy about the miniatures as I&…

[EN/PL] About how the Hobbits celebrate. Part II / O tym jak Hobbici świętują. Część II (Grabblecast Dog and Kennel)

Today, a return to the theme of the Hobbits and their ways to celebrate. I used this entry:

Two archaic models of halflings from the 80's from Games Workshop, which previously "bathed with paint" and painted anew.and a great terrain element from my friends from Grabblecast. This time it is a dog and a kennel. What I can say about this KIT is great details and wood sculpting. Many producers could learn such beautiful sculptures. I hope that it will appeal to a few people as a part of the terrain on the battle table.
And now...

We get a lot of information about the Hobbits in the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, but of course not everything. Many details are in the notes of Master Tolkien, in various studies made by his son, and we can only guess the details.
I wrote some time ago about the Pipe Smoking Day, which hobbits like very much, and now I invite you to the next part - A New Year.

      The year o…
