[EN/PL] Tauriel and the Mirkwood Elf Rangers / Tauriel i elfowie z Mrocznej Puszczy

Hello everyone!
At the beginning, the word of explanation. I consider the Hobbit novel, the pen of Master Tolkien, to be one of the most important and the greatest fantasy works. I am a fan of every word, each character and event, which stands in opposition to the movie, which I like very much on average.
I did not like the idea of the director to add to the original masterpiece a few threads and characters just like Tauriel, an elf who is in vain to find on the Hobbit's pages.

        Tauriel appears in the The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and the Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies movies and for Tolkien's fans was quite controversial, although the beauty of actress Evangeline Lilly rewarded at least part of this experiment.

       Peter Jackson, his wife and friend Fran Walsh, invented Tauriel to expand the world of elves from the Mirkwood Forest and introduce a female character to a male-dominated cast.

        I decided, because a character with this name would perfectly…

And now...

The Battle of Green Fields was a clash /in 2747 on the Third Age at the Green Fields, between the Orcs commanded by Golfimbula, who during the Lean Years led his band southward and reached the North Shire Quarters.

        Hobbits were commanded by Bandobras Tuk. Hobbit was known for its exceptionally large height, as it measured 4.5 feet. Thanks to this he could ride a horse, which was unheard of for the Hobbits - those who preferred ponies.
Many of his descendants lived in North Quarter. They initiated the Tuk family from the North.
For Bilba Baggins - hero o…

[EN/PL] Björn Ironside. An untold story / Björn Żelaznoboki. Historia prawdziwa (Stronghold-Terrain)

Welcome!
Today I come back to the theme of the Vikings, breaking the next figure. Some time ago I presented you the true story of Halfdan the Black, and today I invite you to the saga about Björn Ragnarsson.

Although I like the character of the viking created by the actor Alexander Ludwig in the Vikings series, I have to say with a heartache that about 90% of it is a figment of writers.
The fate of the real Björn (if we can believe sagas and stories) looked completely different...

Today's sponsorship is Stronghold-Terrain, which has many excellent original figures, including Björn Ragnarsson, described today.
The model is made of white metal and is modeled on the 4-5 season from the Vikings series. The miniature consists of three parts: bodies, hands with ax and shield.
And I think it's sweeping!
