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

Image
Welcome!
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.

[EN/PL] The Green, the Bad, and the Ugly / Zielony, Zły i Brzydki (Warmonger Miniatures Orc #1)

Image
I warmly welcome!
It's true that today is not a weekend, but a three-month-old dwarf leave caused (surprisingly!) a faster entry ;)
It's been a long time since there was nothing to do with orcs, goblins or other greenskins, and I still have some resources from the aforementioned ones to paint in my collection.
Therefore, today is another model from one of my favorite fantasy model makers -WARMONGER MINIATURES. Orc is what everyone sees. Evil, dangerous and sculpted in tribute to classic fantasy designs from the 80s and early 90s.
And for that I love figures from Warmonger Miniatures.
Check them out and YOU:

Witam serdecznie!
Co prawda dziś nie weekend, ale urlop z trzymiesięcznym krasnalem spowodował ( o dziwo!) szybszy wpis ;)
Dawno nie było nic związanego z orkami, goblinami czy innymi zielonoskórymi, a trochę jeszcze zasobów z wyżej wymienionych posiadam do pomalowania w swojej kolekcji.
W związku z cz…

[EN/PL] The thing about Kobolds / Rzecz o Koboldach #1 (Northumbrian Tin Soldier The Beardfolk)

Image
I warmly welcome!
Today, I invite you to the first entry about Kobolds! Close cousins of dwarves, of whom I already have a few bands in my collection, that's why the choice fell on this legendary breed known from European folklore.

       I recently received a shipment from Northumbrian Tin Soldier, which is the home of the excellent "Nightfolk" series with dark fantasy miniatures. Old School + atmospheric design!
In the middle of these packages, in addition to "Nightfolks" I got a whole series of "Beardfolks", bearded gentlemen and women who will feed my ranks of kobolds (Thanks David!).
The first painted two in the pictures below - I added shields to the original models that have no traditional dwarves motifs, but Celtic-Welsh. That's how it will be in my kobolds team ;-)

Kobolds, or other dwarves, ghosts, malicious house dwarfs or gnomes guarding underground treasures.
Kobolds are figures from German folklore, but nowadays we often find them in fanta…

[EN/PL] The Story of Brian Boru / Historia Briana Śmiałego (Footsore Miniatures)

Image
Hello everyone!
I return today to the colorful history of early Medieval Ireland and give another story about the retreat, bravery and deeds that are permanently inscribed in the pages of the history of the Green Island.

The models painted today, the army standard bearer and Brian Boru come from one of my favorite producers of metal historical minis - Footsore Miniatures.

The banner is the work of Little Big Men Studios.



BRIAN BORU - THE LAST GREAT HIGH KING OF IRELAND: 

The line between Irish Legend and Irish Myth has often been blurred, especially as the retelling of heroic deeds has been passed on through generations. 

       Brian Boru was no legend although his life deeds were legendary. He was very much a real man and was in fact the last great High King of Ireland and perhaps the greatest military leader the country has ever known. 

       Brian Boru was born Brian Mac Cennétig. He mother was sister to the mother of Conor, the King of Connaught. 
His brother, Mahon, had become King of …
