Hello everyone! The moment has come, expected for over 3 years! I finished another band! It is true that about 15 years ago I painted the Witch Hunters band (and even with more interesting models), but there was no trace of them left, and they would now only be suitable for washing.
That is why I happily welcome again, in my opinion, the most atmospheric of all Mordheim's bands. That's the quintessence of this game. Who didn't want to play the role of a witch hunter playing RPGs? And commanding the whole unit sounded even better!
Today, the last two flagellants (including the climate halfling from Westfalia Miniatures) and photos of the whole band. I invite you!

Warmly welcome! Long, ah long I haven't painted anything from Scibor's Monstrous Miniatures. Therefore, it's time to make up for it and today I invite you to the first post about Tolkien's Thorin's Company.
In this series, I will present the team of dwarves, and paint which is painted on, followers of the Lonely Mountain. In the first entry Gloin, Bofur and Oin. I painted the last two a few years ago and now I just changed the names on the bases to match the design. What is new is the dwarf model that will serve me as Gloin. Just painted, while maintaining the characteristic features to fit the rest.
I hope you like my idea of alternative dwarves from "Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Quest for Erebor In TA 2799, Glóin was known to have fought in the Battle of Azanulbizar, the last battle of the War of the Dwarves and Orcs. In TA 2941, Glóin and his brother Óin, along with his cousins Dwalin and Balin, were among the Dwarves accompanying Thorin and…
Hello Everyone! Return to Dead Marshes with Gollum, Frodo and Sam today.In the PREVIOUS Part you could learn a bit about the history of this land, where it got its name from, and what event contributed to the appearance of specific ... inhabitants here.
To summarize, the Dead Marshes spread across the Dagorlad plain, north of Mordor, on the eastern shore of the Anduin. Their name comes from the battle that was fought there on Dagorlad, in which great armies met: the people and elves of the Last Alliance fought against Sauron's forces.After the battle, the corpses of elves and people were buried on the plain, then flooded.That's how the title Dead Marshes were created.
In the one of the chapter of Two Towers entitledThrough the marshes, a route of hobbit wandering: Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee, led by Gollum. The Hobbits saw the dead underwater and vicious flames hovering over the swamps, which Gollum called the "candles of the dead." Those who succumb to the f…
Hello everyone! Today, a short break from the historical atmosphere for my favorite Lord of the Rings series. I decided to paint one of the models that I have already taken for over a decade. Many metal patterns of models that came out during the premiere of the movies and shortly after them have undoubted charm and great painting potential. I come back to them very, very kindly.
The Spectre is a creature haunting the Dead Marshes through where Frodo, Sam and Gollum passed in the Two Towers, on their journey to the heart of Mordor. They are not ghosts or zombies, and as Gollum used to say, something like specters: "You can't touch them, feel them. Maybe it's just shapes, without a body?" But let's give voice to master Tolkien and the three heroes traveling through the Dead Marshes...
In the dark half-light, as far as the eye could see in south and east, wetlands and swamps stretched out before them. Fog stretched over the stinking backwaters, a suffocating odo…
I invite you to the second post (and the fourth about the Teutonic Knights) about knights-robbers serving the Teutonic Order.
For this project I used models from the from Fireforge Games: Foot SergeantsAs I mentioned in a previous post about this formation - Struters / Latrunculi were in the thirteenth century at the service of the Teutonic Order during the Northern Crusades and the wars of the Teutonic Knights with Prussia and Lithuanians.
White coats were only allowed to be worn by brothers-knights and chaplains (including priests and clerics). The servants' brothers had to be satisfied with gray cloaks and shields (with a specific cross). As my robbers, of which more below, are not servant brothers, but more mercenaries in the service of the Order, their dress is not orthodox, and only shields show who they are fighting for.
When in 1260 the Prussian tribes rebelled against the Order's authorities, the Struters had their hands full. The Prussians were pagan…
