II. Preparation for the clash near Chojnice. The Kingdom of Poland, the Prussian Union and mercenary troops approached Malbork (Marienburg) and the siege of the capital of the Teutonic State began. At the same time, a thousand soldiers came to Chojnice, led by Henryk Reuss von Plauen, to another castle not yet captured in this phase of the war. He was an experienced knight, nephew of the Elbląg commander (future Grand Master of the same name, that's why they were often mistaken). His uncle at that time defended Malbork alongside the Grand Master.
It is worth adding that the siege of the Teutonic capital by Poles and mercenary Czechs was greatly ineff…
Hello everyone! Inspired by the project of Aleksander Gawroński about the Crown of Kingdom of Poland army during the Thirteen Years' War (also called the War of the Cities) in 1454–1466, I decided to build the second side of the conflict, the Teutonic Order (the bigger part were mercenaries Today, the first six pikemen from the mercenary army of Bernhard von Zinnenberg (Bernard Szumborski). This commander became very famous during the Thirteen Years' War serving the Teutonic Knights, but about him at the next opportunity (together with painted knights and himself).
Hello everyone! It's time for a short break in historical projects for fantasy! Another great miniature from Dunkeldorf today. An Ogre sculpted in the atmosphere of a good old Warhammer. Will perfectly match Old World games as well as other fantasy RPGs.
MoRdheim Ogres are large, brutish creatures, standing some ten feet tall, and all of it bone and muscle. For this reason they are much in demand as bodyguards and mercenaries, despite their lack of brains. A warband backed up by an Ogre makes a fearsome enemy, since Ogres are extremely dangerous fighters and a terrifying sight to behold when enraged. They happily accept any employer, as they are notoriously unbothered about who they fight for.
Dunkeldorf Leopold the Ogre Bouncer works as the bouncer at "The Prancing Peacock" a popular tavern located in Dunkeldorf. Get ready for UPCOMING KICKSTARTER "Dunkeldorf: The Prancing Peacock - RPG Tavern Miniatures". In a while I will show a bit of this upcoming collection ;-)
Hello everyone! We will end May in dwarven and with a bang! For a long time there was nothing to my dwarfs, and more generally another mercenary would be useful to Mordheim. Trollslayer, one of my favorite designs. From what I remember GW released two Slayers to Mordheim. My design number 2 has a lot of different cool features and interesting details, and the general pose is also quite interesting and dangerous. I invite you!
Troll Slayers are members of the morbid Dwarf cult whose followers are obsessed with seeking an honourable death in combat. Having committed some unforgivable crime or been dishonoured in an irredeemable way, a Dwarf will forsake his home and wander off to die fighting the enemies of Dwarfkind. Troll Slayers are insanely dangerous individuals, psychopathic and violent. However, there are few better fighters, so they are much sought after when warriors are needed. Known as "Hired Axes", Troll Slayers who come to Mordheim find plenty of opportunit…
Hello everyone! I invite you to the second review of a set of models that I received from Samuel from SABRE Miniatures today.
The Spanish company specializes in the production and sale of 28 mm resin half-size models (there are more nations in the pre-production!) stylized in the Middle Ages, and more specifically the Hundred Years War between England and France.
The models look very good and preparing them for painting does not require a lot of time. In the ever expanding range of SABRE Miniatures we have various infantry formations of halflings and a fantastic cavalry of a small people on ... donkeys :)
