[EN/PL] Northern Crusades. Konrad, the Devil and the Latrunculi / Struters (knights - brigands). Teutonic Order #2 / Krucjaty Północne. Konrad Diabeł i Struterowie (rycerze rozbójnicy) Krzyżacy #2 (Fireforge Games)

Hello everyone!
I use the last days of vacation and invite you to the last entry in July. I decided to follow the blow and publish one more entry in the Teutonic climates. On this occasion, I painted the first three knights-robbers (Struters / Latrunculi), who were in the thirteenth century on the services of the Teutonic Order in the times of the Northern Crusades and the wars of the Teutonic Knights with Prussians and Lithuanians.

For this project I used models from two sets from Fireforge Games:
Scandinavian InfantryFoot SergeantsWhite coats were only allowed to be worn by brothers-knights and chaplains (including priests and clerics). The servants' brothers had to be satisfied with gray cloaks and shields (with a specific cross).
As my robbers, of which more below, are not servant brothers, but more mercenaries in the service of the Order, their dress is not orthodox, and only shields show who they are fighting for.

[EN/PL] Northern Crusades. Historical background. Teutonic Order #1 / Krucjaty Północne. Tło historyczne. Krzyżacy #1 (V&V Miniatures Crusader box)

Hello my friends!
I finished a short holiday with my family and I invite you to a new entry.
I took another set from V&V Miniatures for the workshop. This time "Crusaders"box, which knights I decided to paint in the colors of the Teutonic Order and its allies in the theater of action which were the North / Baltic crusades.
       Models, as I have mentioned many times, are made of resin and look perfectly.
Beautiful quality and a multitude of details only emphasize the values of figurines.

North / Baltic Crisis. Historical background.
The official beginning of the northern crusades was the call of Pope Celestine III from 1194. Actions to subjugate the non-Christian neighbors of the Kingdom of Scandinavia and the Holy Roman Empire were also undertaken in the earlier period with varying results.
       These undertakings were largely ideological, and the main ideolog…

[EN/PL] Blackbeard's Pirate crew #1 / Załoga piratów Czarnobrodego #1 (Black Scorpion Miniatures and Grabblecast)

Ar, ar you land rats!
Today I invite you to the first entry associated with the pirates under the command of Blackbeard, an English pirate who in the years 1716-1718 prowled in the Caribbean Sea.
       He was one of the most dangerous pirates of his time. A few more words about the that sea devil in the third post (along with my version of the model) and today the first two bad guys, types from under the dark star and gentlemen of a shameful reputation! Lucky Jack and Mr Gambling!

I used for the entry:
brilliant models (which many people have already asked about me) made of resin, with a lot of great details and very nice general appearance. LINK to Black Scorpion Miniaturesthe boat that I got from my friends from Grabbleast. It consists of four elements and is also made of resin (many manufacturers can envy the Grabblecast quality of its components for mockups and models!)


Ar, ar szczury lądowe!
Dziś zapraszam na pierwszy wpis z związany z piratami pod dowództwem Czarnobrodego, angielskie…

[EN/PL] SPQR - Warlord Games: Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo (Warlord Games)

Hello everyone!
The story of two centurions from the 11th Legion (Legio XI Claudia) in the army of Caesar today.
The great leader mentions brave soldiers (also known from the TV series Rome) in the work "Gallic War"

And it's Caesar's voice today ...

"In that legion there were two most gallant centurions, now not far from the first class of their rank,6 Titus Pullo and Lucius Vorenus. They had continual quarrels together which was to stand first, and every year they struggled in fierce rivalry for the chief posts. 
One of them, Pullo, when the fight was fiercest by the entrenchments, said: "Why hesitate, Vorenus? Or what chance of proving your pluck do you wait for? This day shall decide our quarrels."
 So saying, he stepped outside the entrenchments, and dashed upon the section of the enemy which seemed to be in closest array. Neither did Vorenus keep within the rampart, but in fear of what all men would think he followed hard. 
Then, at short range, Pullo se…
