[EN/PL] A few words about mercenaries in the Middle Ages / Słów kilka o Najemnikach w średniowieczu (Westfalia Menatarms)

Welcome!
In the ending week, I managed to paint three very interesting and nicely made resin figurines from Westfalia. They will join captain Strong a few months ago.
I allowed myself to make tarotistic patterns and symbols from Goeteia on the shields.        I think that models will work great in historical and fantasy systems as a complement to an army or human band of adventurers and mercenaries.
And I would like to say a few words about the last ones...

The mercenaries were (are) a military formation consisting of volunteers fighting for money. They are usually characterized by military service for a given state, city, ruler or organization, or even a private person.
Mercenaries can be rented to fight in virtually any matter, because these formations are not guided by idealism (only pocket wealth is what counts!).
Mercenaries are people for whom war is a profession, from which they derive the means to live (pay) and enrich themselves.

       In medieval Europe, the economic crisis of the…

I invite you!


Imperial Dwarfs is a term used for the Dwarfs that have immigrated to the Empire of Man, merging into their culture and providing the Empire with Dwarfen skill and expertise. Imperial Dwarfs are the “second people” of the Empire, its most important race outside of Humanity itself.

Hello everyone!
Today, quite a feast on DwarfCrypt! I painted the first model for the Age of Sigmar (actually Warhammer Underworlds), which I dont like, but the end of enthusiasm.
As a lover and follower of Warhammer from the period before the AoS, I do not think about entering this system, and a few painted goblins will serve as a supplement to my emerging band of green creatures in Mordheim. That's why I put a square stand and no references to AoS.

I have already written a bit IN THIS PLACE about the night goblins, that's why today I would like to invite you to a journey through folklore (mainly the Britain), a world of legends and myths related to goblins.


Goblins are the most widespread in Britain and northern France. They came to the islands as a form of a kobold. They were (are?) happy creatures but also very malicious.
They were believed to bring harm to people. Goblins are not the type of creatures strongly attached to one place. Legends say that they are particularly fond …
