Hello everyone! I use the last days of vacation and invite you to the last entry in July. I decided to follow the blow and publish one more entry in the Teutonic climates. On this occasion, I painted the first three knights-robbers (Struters / Latrunculi), who were in the thirteenth century on the services of the Teutonic Order in the times of the Northern Crusades and the wars of the Teutonic Knights with Prussians and Lithuanians.
For this project I used models from two sets from Fireforge Games: Scandinavian InfantryFoot SergeantsWhite 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.
Hello everyone! Admittedly, I had plans to finish three new Flagellants, not one, but the flood of work-related matters that waiting after the holidays took me away physically and mentally, and my eyes needed rest :-) I am returning to my Witch Hunter project today. Previous entries about this atmospheric band in the damned Mordheim under THIS LINK The models that I decided to use are 6-edited metal Flagellants from the Empire army. BTW my favorite designs from all editions of this unit in WFB.
Today, the text refers directly to the history of Flagellants I invite you!
Flagellants are the same name of members of religious brotherhoods, existing from the thirteenth to the fifteenth century.The countries in which they mainly carried their news and bloody sacrifices were Italy and Germany.Then also Spain and Poland joined.In our "pious" country for centuries, public whipping has been practiced as a form of repentance for grave sins.
Good morning! On August 15, we celebrate in Poland the festival of the Rapture of the Saint Virgin Mary (Assumptio Beatissimae Mariae Virginis in caelum), so another two knights of The Order of Brothers of the German House of Saint Mary in Jerusalem (commonly known as the Teutonic Knights) from V&V Miniatures from "Crusaders"box today. Models, as I have mentioned many times, are made of resin and look perfectly. Beautiful quality and a multitude of details only emphasize the values of figurines.
Hello my friends! I finished a short holiday with my family and I invite you to a new entry. I took another set from V&V Miniatures for the workshop. This time "Crusaders"box, which knights I decided to paint in the colors of the Teutonic Order and its allies in the theater of action which were the North / Baltic crusades. Models, as I have mentioned many times, are made of resin and look perfectly. Beautiful quality and a multitude of details only emphasize the values of figurines.
North / Baltic Crisis. Historical background. The official beginning of the northern crusades was the call of Pope Celestine III from 1194. Actions to subjugate the non-Christian neighbors of the Kingdom of Scandinavia and the Holy Roman Empire were also undertaken in the earlier period with varying results. These undertakings were largely ideological, and the main ideolog…
