Hello everyone! A summary of two sets of archers (painted the last two!): English Archers 5 and English Archers 6from Claymore Castings today. Company specializes in excellent metal models from the Middle Ages with an emphasis on the Hundred Years' War. What captivated me was the excellent performances and poses of these figurines. We have both static models and full war scarves.
I decided to paint the models in the same colors so that in the future they could create a one unit. And they can be successfully used in a whole range of historical and fantasy systems (you won't find better replacement Bretonians infrantry models!). I RECOMMEND with all my heart.
This is obviously not my last adventure with models from Claymore Castings. More armed and ... Genoese mercenaries with beautiful pavies are waiting to be painted!
"The world was young, the mountains green, No stain yet on the Moon was seen, No words were laid on stream or stone When Durin woke and walked alone. He named the nameless hills and dells; He drank from yet untasted wells; He stooped and looked in Mirrormere, And saw a crown of stars appear, As gems upon a silver thread, Above the shadows of his head..." - fragment of Durin's song.

"Sword is the soul of a samurai, If one forgets or lose him, will not be forgiven" -testament of shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa (fragment) Today at DwarfCrypt I invite you to a trip to the country of the Cherry Blossom in feudal period.To
tell this story I will use freshly painted miniatures from North Star Military Miniatures to Ronin game, which I unpacked in this place.The Samurai, because of them, is one of the most recognizable social groups in history.But from the beginning ... The Samurai, the warrior, is a widely spread name in the West, the name of a feudal Japanese knight in Japan, commonly called Bushi, which I admit very much and I would like to use this phrase interchangeably. This name has changed over time with the phonetic change in samurai, which means "serve you". Originally, it meant a steward serving the highest Japanese dignitaries. They were also imperial guards called gosho-zamurai. The symbol of Bushi's positio…
Hello everyone! As I promise, today I return to the historical theme and the multicolored Landsknechts, who sowed terror on the battlefields of the Renaissance. To today's entry, I used first two plastic models from Warlord Games from the Landsknechts Pikemenbox. I will come back to them in future entries about the described formation, because they look phenomenal in my opinion!
At the turn of the fifteenth and sixteenth century, the system of hauling troops was relatively similar throughout Europe. The king or emperor entrusted the task of recruiting "dogs of war" to an experienced soldier with a higher rank. In the period of interest to me, Emperor Maximilian I Habsburg has dreamed of creating the best infantry in the known world. Exceeding the effectiveness of the Swiss pikemen at that time (it is worth noting that it was the compact infantry regiments and later firearms that ousted the knights on horseback known so far on the battlefields.
Today, I invite everyone to the first of the cycle of expeditions through the streets of ancient Rome.
The main reason for taking up this topic is the recent premiere of the Gangs of Rome game.
