[EN/PL] Mablung and Doriath elves / Mablung i elfy z Doriathu (Oathmark Elves #1)

Hello everyone!
I am returning to my favorite work by J.R.R. Tolkien "Simarillion" today and invite you to the first entry dedicated to one of the kingdoms of elves, which is mentioned by Gandalf or Elrond in the Lord of the Rings. I am talking about Doriath, the kingdom of elves located in Beleriand, inhabited by Sindar elves. Thingol and his wife Meliana exercised power in the kingdom.
       More about the kingdom itself next time I leave, and today my Dears, let me devote a few words to Mablung, a supporting protagonist,in many stories in the Silmarillion...

To today's entry I used the elf models from Oathmark: Battles of the Lost Age

Mablung, along with Daeron, came to the Mereth Aderthad bearing gifts and friendship from Doriath. He also served in Menegroth in some unknown position of command. Together with Beleg Cúthalion, was one of the great captains of the Sindar, and were the only Elves of Doriath to fight with the Union of Maedhros in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, as K…

[EN/PL] Deus vult! About Templar Knights / Bóg tak chcę! O Templariuszach (Stronghold-Terrain)

"Non nobis Domine, non nobis, sed nomini Tuo da gloriam!" (Ps. 115,1 )
Hello everyone. Today at the DwarfCrypt, post dedicated to the Templars. It is probably one of the most recognizable knight order of the day crusade and not only (well, i Poland more popular only the Teutonic Knights, because a years of bloody wars with them).

Courtesy of Stronghold-Terrain for today's entry I used a limited metal crusader model (Raimund of Toulouse), which the manufacturer joins the order with the manual for the SAGA: Age of Crusades (German edition).
From the source I know that the mini will be available in normal sales from next week.
I think that I fit in perfectly with the army of the Crusaders, Brothers in Arms, as a priest and commander.
I recommend!

And now...
The Templar knights, the Order of the Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon (Fratres Militiae Templi, Pauperes Commilitones Christi Templique Sa…

[EN/PL] To be or not to be a Lost Children #1 / Być czy nie być Utraconym Dzieckiem #1 (Rotten Factory / Rotten Circus)

Hello everyone!
Blogs are falling, bloggers are falling into dejection, complaining and despair, but DwarfCrypt invites you to a new post every week!

Today, again thanks to the kindness of Paweł from ROTTEN FACTORY, I invite you to look at the next models from the Rotten Circus project. There were the first Cultists and today the Lost Children.
Perhaps these were true children who were kidnapped once and who under the influence of Dark forces underwent devilish metamorphosis? Or maybe they are small malicious demons, which macabre the life of knights, warriors and other adventurers in a macabre way?

My first association with the two of painted today is Hamlet by William Shakespeare.
This is my favorite work of the English poet, and the miniatures remind me of the macabre scene from Act V, when the action moves to the cemetery, where they copy the grave of two gravediggers...

- "Are they really going to give her a Christian burial after she killed herself?"
Ask first gravedigger.

[EN/PL] The thing about Gnomes / Rzecz o Gnomach (Northumbrian Tin Soldier The Beardfolk #2)

Hello everyone!
It's weekend. So there is a new entry on DwarfCrypt! I am very pleased to introduce you
Dear visitors, another two dwarves from the "Beardfolk" series received from David from Northumbrian Tin Soldier
This time is a Shaman and beard warrior miniatures.

Today I would like to tell a little about the history of Gnomes in European folklore.
Gnomes, creatures similar to Dwarves and Kobolds. And I could end it, because ... gnomes have never been in legends and myths :)

       In the XV century, a physician, charlatan and alchemist known under the pseudonym Paracelsus invented the gnomes as a manifestation of the Earth Elemental. There is nothing about hooded dwarves, miners and treasures hidden deep underground. These Elementals turned into stone after contact with the sun's rays.
Known for fantasy, today's gnomes, is the invention of nineteenth-century writers. At that time, the American Nathaniel Hawthrone in the collection Twice-Told Tales from 1837 determi…
