Draugur* in Old Iceland, Draugr in Sweden, Norway and Denmark or Dreag in Old English
nomenclature, although the most accurate are the words of the Old Danish
Uppvakningar word- resurrected from the dead and Aptrgangr - who walk
Yes, today I invite you to an entry dedicated to the undead in Vikings beliefs world. The
palette of ghosts and wraiths and deamons is quite large in Norse folklore, but
Draug (modern spelling used in Denmark, Norway and Sweden) was the
greatest fear - living dead and ghastly visitors. According
to the legends and sagas, Draugr were the ghoul of dead people - they
looked like what we now know under the name of zombies
or decaying corpses. They were like warriors from old times, armed with old weapons, and worn robes. The worst, however, was their behavior.
Draugr had the worst traits of a living warrior. They could, therefore, be cruel and vengeful. Hating
everything that is alive (longing for life?), and if we add to it
Hello Everyone! I return to miniatures from Unreleased Miniatures and my project Lake-Town today. In the category of Free People described today (according to Unreleased Miniatures), we can assemble up to three completely different sets of Women in Arms, with hand weapons, arcs and spears. Today I present two ready units of women with bows and hand weapons.
Main features of sets - Woman-at-arms with bows and Woman-at-arms with axes:
All parts made of metal (bodies, hands with weapons, shields),Scale 28 mm,Requires cleaning of trapping, dividing lines and inequalities (unfortunately it's too much and it's in every miniature!)No bases,PRICE ==>THERE<==A general, subjective impression is good. Models refer to the sculpture and idea for the classics and I will be happy to include them in the collection of models from the LOTR and Hobbit categories. In the Unreleased Miniatures offer you will also find other nice miniatures recalling everything we call the classics of fantasy figur…
"... And never, never stop dreaming, but watch carefully what you dream about..." - The Ingenious Nobleman Sir Quixote of La Mancha
Hello everyone! Today,
a unique entry about one of the most expressive characters in the
history of literature - Don Quixote of La Mancha, also known as the
"Knight of the Tempered Face".
I bought a
knight miniature (Mordheim Freelance Knight originally), which is vividly
inspired by the accepted image of the our poor 16th Spanish nobleman entry hero. I replaced from miniature a mount for better, in my opinion, looking in terms of sculpture and clarity of detail. As the color of La Mancha is red and white, I decided to display such colors on the model presented today.
important component (if not more important) is the Ania, guest appearance of Anna Fit- Kulturalny Blog, which agreed to write a few words
about the phenomenon and universality of Don Quixote. Ania writes on
the blog broadly understood culture, and her knowled…
Hello everyone! Today, a complete novelty on DwarfCrypt. The history of literature, fantasy games and movies is full of various fairy-tale creatures - and yes, in addition to elves, dwarves or unicorns we also have a second pole - beings of the dark ones- Demons, Undead or Goblins, a fraction of the opponents of our pure heart heroes.
Thanks to the kindness of Pawel from Rotten Factory, I will show you what you can do with two sets of War Sickles and Shields parts. I decided to use a few Warhammer goblins for that, which I will use later as a Mordheimband. I really like the atmosphere of the discussed weapon and, above all, the shields that worship the 80s and 90s minis world. This divine (demonic!) Oldhammer design!
Below I invite you to see the effects of converting and painting and a few words about the Night Goblins. There will be another chapter of the green theatre in time.
Many years ago one of the tribes of green-skinned goblins settled in the caves of the World's…
Hello everyone! And invite you to the next dose of less known facts from history plus the first two completely new painted metal Landknechts models, about the history of which I wrote in THIS place. I also think seriously about the use of the soldiers presented today, and the subsequent painted seven, as Stirland warriors, into the MoRdheim system, from the Warhammer universe. A few words about the figures from Warlord Games themselves, which are sculpted quite well and have an interesting pose - like looters! I carved the city pavement from green stuff and I think it will be perfect for the streets of Italian cities and the cursed corners of the Old World.
I invite you to look at photos and a short text!
Sacco di Roma, is the general name for the conquest and looting of Rome in May 6-14, 1527 by the German-Spanish armies of Charles V during the war with France, Pope Clement VII and Italian cities (War of the League of Cognac). The barbaric destruction of the city put an end to the period…
