[ENG/PL] SAGA: Aetius & Arthur: Owain mab Urien / Owain, syn Uriena (Footsore Miniatures - Late Roman Infantry Command #1)

Image
Good morning!

Hello all my esteemed visitors and invite you to the first entry devoted to the times and the Arthurian legends. Briefly, if King Arthur and his company were in fact right in those days, soon after leaving the Roman army in Britain.
Thanks to Footsore Miniatures, for the Owain model and the music of the unit, I used the Late Roman Infantry Command.

       Owain was a mythical hero of the sixth century, the son of Urien of Rheged and Modron. He fought in his life with the North Britons against the Anglo-saxons.
Later, Hero was included in the Arthurian tales (also known as Ywain, Yvain, Ewain, or Uwain) and became the main heroine of the "Lady of the Fountain" and "Sleep of Rhonabwa".
In the latter, he appears as the leader of a unit called the Raven, who fights with Arthur's warriors, while Owain and the king play chess.It is possible, that the Ravens are not warriors, but the women of the Underworld, but his mother- Modron often changes into a ra…

[ENG/PL] Hordes: The Wanderer - Grymkin Warlock (Privateer Press)

"If you care not where you roam, every road will take you home."
Hello all visitors!

Today's  a complete novelty on blog. I have not had the opportunity to paint models for the very popular battle system Hordes and Warmachine. This is so strange because the Privateer Press miniatures are great, and one of the newest factions, Grymkin, captivated me with my dark look so much that I decided to write to the producer.
       In this way, I present you the first painted model of the Wanderer, who will support with witchcraft art my rising Horde. I will leave the question of the first test games and rules absorption until I'll painted figures (Your humble servant does not recognize gray plastic or pure metal).
Overall impression:
The model consists of two parts - a body and a hand with a lantern.It also has a stand for the miniature and three marker bases.Made of "white metal" with attention to the smallest detail.Subjectively, it looks great!

[ENG/PL] The Painter Grip for miniatures and models / Uchwyt do Figurek i Modeli (HobbyZone.pl)

Hello my friends!
        My fiance recently said that my painting office is like a pigsty. Pigsty? Can not be said. This is an "artistic disorder", a place where everything is in place, albeit in a controversial way. Word was said and milk was poured out.
        I decided to put myself in the hands of HobbyZone (Look at the manufacturer's page - they'll enchant you!), specialists of accessory for modelers and hobbyists. And so I received some gifts, the first of which I would like to review for You today.



Witam wszystkich ogromnie serdecznie!
       Moja narzeczona powiedziała ostatnio, że moje biuro do malowania przypomina chlewik. Chlewik? Nie może być odrzekłem. Toć to "artystyczny nieład", miejsce w którym wszystko jest na swoim miejscu, choć w kontrowersyjny sposób. Słowo się rzekło i mleko zostało wylane.
       Postanowiłem oddać się w ręce specjalistów od akcesoriów dla modelarzy i hobbystów i napisałem do HobbyZone (zajrzyjcie na stronę producenta- oc…

[ENG/PL] See you in Valhalla! / Do zobaczenia w Walhalli! (V&V Miniatures Vikings #2)

"Since no ax, spear or blade has reached my son today, he will be known as Bjørn Ironside now." -Ragnar Lodbrok

Hello everyone!

Today I am returning to the excellent V&V Miniature figurines I received for review. The set is called "Vikings 6".

V&V Miniature kits feature the great detail of the finest resin models.
There are 40mm and 28mm figures (Vikings, Normans and Anglo-Saxons) in the offer, which will enrich every army, band or team of players and collectors.

Remember that before painting it is very helpful to wash the figures in warm soapy water and to clean the elements from the light residue after the cast. I use modeling scissors and toothbrushes..

Like also V&V Miniatures on Facebook.


The four housecarls present today will play the part of Jarl's personal defense (historians and sagas have known the courage and protection of the Scandinavian rulers), so they have richly decorated shields and more elaborate costumes - unlike Bondi's.
