Hello everyone!
After a week's break due to a visit to Poznan at Blog Conference Poznan, I invite you to a new entry. Today I come back to the subject of the hobbits and halflings and would like to introduce the Honorable Visitors and fans of prose J.R.R. Tolkien a few holidays, festivities and fun of hobbits known throughout Shire or Bree. In the first part, I invite you to the Pipe Smoking Day.

The halfling model comes from the excellent Warmonger Miniatures, specializing in classic fantasy figures. Courtesy of Warmonger team, from time to time I will return to their excellent figurines, which will certainly appeal to all lovers of fantasy games and model collectors in the spirit of Oldhammer.

Information about the Hobbits can be found primarily in the "Lord of the Rings" and the title "Hobbit" by the master J.R. Tolkien.

Hello everyone!

Friday 13th is a beautiful date to return to the topic of two serial killers from the nineteenth century Edinburgh.
The duo deserve a light facelift, better pictures and rewritten text. Models come from the  Empire of the dead game from WestWind Production.

For centuries, Edinburgh has been called the "Old Mugger" because of the high pollution. The city's great development in the 19th century contributed to this.
The city, drawing on the benefits of the industrial revolution from a crowded and crowded center, began to go beyond the city walls.

Schools, universities, new hospitals and factories were built at that time. Promises of rapid enrichment and the possibility of scientific development attracted not only schoolteachers and engineers to the Scottish metropolis, but also many poor immigrants, including from Ireland, a famine experienced at that time. That's how William Burke and William Hare came to town.

       Wild West (Old West) - popular term for the western United States, referring to the period of the nineteenth and first decade of the twentieth century.
This name was popularized by literature and later by the movies of the western genre. In Western, the constant struggles of Indians, cowboys, bandits, sheriffs, trappers and settlers were shown.
It is worth remembering that much of what we saw in films was significantly different from reality, although there were some similarities. One of the more serious problems of the Wild West was the difficulties which the American admi…

"Rain has washed us, laundered us,and the sun has dried us black.  Worse—ravens plucked our eyes hollowand picked our beards and brows.  Never ever have we sat down, butthis way, and that way, at the wind'sgood pleasure ceaselessly we swing 'n swivel,more nibbled at than sewing thimbles. Therefore, think not of joining our guild"- Francois Villon (The Ballad Of The Hanged Men)
Hello everyone!
Today's Sunday is unique for three reasons. Catholics celebrate this day the most important holiday in the liturgical calendar, which is Easter. On this occasion, the widest wishes of happiness and peace for all believers and other friends visiting DwarfCrypt. Break away from the models and blogging for a while and spend some time with your family. What I wish you and myself :)

Since Sunday is also a new blog entry. This time, the return to the historical atmosphere, and more precisely the seventeenth century and the Anno Domini 1666 game, which was created and develops thanks …
