[ENG/PL] Life and death of Ælla, King of Northumbria / Życie i śmierć króla Elli z Nortumbrii (Footsore Miniatures)

Image
Hello everyone!

Today I invite everyone to get acquainted with history of) King Aella, the ruler of Northumbria.
For the opportunity to paint the magnificent statue of the king and standard bearer thanks for Footsore Miniatures. The company offers exemplary models from the "Dark Ages" but not only.
I also encourage you to follow the official site on FB.
I recommend from all my black heart, the more that every month you can get a limited model for your collection by shopping for a certain amount.

In the next week I also goes on vacation, including Blog Forum Gdańsk, party for blogers, so the next post I plan in about 1,5 weeks.
Farewell!

And now...
Aella of Nortumbria was the Anglo-Saxon ruler of the second half of the ninth century, also known as Alle, Alli, Ælla, Ælle. One thing we know for sure - died in March 21, 867.

        The origin of the king is unknown. The Anglo-Saxon monk, Simeon of Durham, says in his chronicle that he had no royal descent. It is very possible, however,…

[ENG/PL] About the Ravens in the Nordic world / O Krukach w świecie Nordyckim (HQ Resin Ravens Basing Kit)

Image
Good morning!

The main inspiration for today's rhinoceros writings in Norse mythology was the HQ Resin models and their RAVENS BASING KIT

HQ Resin sets are crafted with care for the smallest detail, with the highest quality resin. The review of the product, like other arcade sets, can be found in the Hexy-Shop.

Ravens Basing Kit consists of 6 ravens (2 out of 3 designs). The set is perfect for 28-33mm figures in the climate of the early Middle Ages, the Viking Age, the Wild West, the Second World War. Modellers in fantasy or steampunk climates will also be thrilled.
Reviewed Ravens will diversify and enrich every diorama, element of bases or miniatures.
Below I also invite you to take a picture of the raw and ready set.

It is important to remember that before painting it is very helpful to wash the set in warm soapy water and to clean the elements from the light residue after the cast. I use modeling scissors and toothbrushes. Be very careful because the elements are small and can break…

[ENG/PL] From the cold North! / Z mroźnej Północy! (V&V Miniatures Vikings #1)

Hello everyone, very warmly!
I was lucky to have one of the "Vikings 6" sets for review in collaboration with V&V Miniatures.
V&V Miniature kits feature the great detail of the finest resin models.
The 40mm and 28mm Vikings (Viking, Norman and Anglo-Saxons) are present in the offer, which will enrich every army, band or team of players and collectors.

Below I presented the "inboxing" of the set in the raw state and the final effect from under my brush.
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.

[ENG/PL] Torsten Oakhammer (Footsore Miniatures) and ... Blood Eagle ritual/ Torsten Dębowy Młot i ... rytuał Krwawego Orła

Good afternoon!

On DwarfCrypt back to viking times and climates related to the history and culture of these Nordic invaders. Courtesy of Footsore Miniatures I got and painted a limited metal miniature of Torsten OakHammer, which was available on the manufacturer's website in order by the end of August.

The miniature looks great and holds, as it ceased to be a Viking hero, an epic pose, a long "Danish" ax and a richly decorated helmet. It will be a beautiful variation of the Viking collection and brave jarl in many battlefields. I promise that this is not my last adventure with Footsore Miniatures and I will be bringing you closer to the historical sets.

Other beautiful minis and boxess can you found on the manufacturer's website:
