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 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 …
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: https://www.warmongerminiatures.com/ https://www.facebook.com/warmongerminiatures/
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…
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…
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…
