And now...
Dwarf (Old Norse dvergr, Old English dweorg, Old High German twerg, Proto-Germanic dwergaz) is a certain kind of invisible being in the pre-Christian mythology and religion of the Norse and other Germanic peoples.
No one really knows what the word “dwarf” and its cognates originally meant, but there’s n…

Hello everyone during the plague!
I hope that all of you my dears, despite the ubiquitous virus you have no reason to worry.

Today another set from Norba Miniatures
A very nice set of Chaos Dwarfs from Immortal unit. I wondered for a long time how I knew these helmets worn before short-legged people, until the glare came to me!

300. Persians. Immortals. I like this reference very much!

Characteristic:
the unit consists of 10 plastic warriors (including a command group) and 10 20mm bases;they refer to the classic (5 ed and above) Chaos Dwarf models;figurines have some traps and dividing lines that must be cleaned before painting;model scale is heroic 28mm;
And some history.

I. The Ancestry of the Chaos Dwarfs.
In the wilderness called the plain of Zharr, the dwarfs erected the huge fortress of Karak Vlag, from which expeditions continually set out to explore the great wealth of the Weeping Mountains, ignoring the gloomy peaks of volcanoes that covered the entire land with smoke.

[EN/PL] Republic of Genoa / Repubblica di Genova / Republika Genui #2 : Sergeant / Sierżant (OT47 Men at Arms Pack 2 #1)

Image
Welcome!
Return to beautiful Genoa today! I painted another model for mercenary troops and this time it will be to the sergeant, which I used to create one of the models from Claymore Castings from the knights OT47 Men at Arms Pack 2 set.

       In my opinion, the figurine fits perfectly to previously painted transom as an officer or commander.
On the shield (Pavies) once again brilliant, dedicated, stickers from Little Big Men.

==> Part I <==



Witam serdecznie!
Dziś powrót do pięknej Genui! Pomalowałem kolejny model do oddziały najemników i tym razem będzie do sierżant, do stworzenia którego posłużył mi jeden z modeli od Claymore Castings z zestawu rycerzy OT47 Men at Arms Pack 2.

       Figurka moim zdaniem doskonale pasuję do poprzednio pomalowanych pawężników w charakterze oficera lub dowódcy.
Na tarczy (Pawęży) po raz kolejny genialne, dedykowane, naklejki od Little Big Men.

Image
Hello everyone!
I invite you at first glance to models from Norba Miniatures today!
Recently, I got a large package from the manufacturer with models for various factions / armies / races and as the first I present a unit of Imperial Doppelsöldner, which is so well-known and liked by name for WFB players - Greatswords.

Characteristic:
the unit consists of 10 plastic knights (including command group) and 10 20mm /20mm basesa beautiful banner is attached;they relate to historical Landsknechts;figurines have some traps and dividing lines that must be cleaned before painting;model scale is v. heroic 28mm;
Summary:

Doppelsöldner unit is a product designed primarily for players of 9th Age, various WFB editions, as an alternative and supplement for the army of the Empire and other battlefield players.
Interesting designs and a relatively small price will allow to complete the army in a relatively short time.
That's why I think it's a very good solution for players.
Collectors, on the other h…

[EN/PL] Republic of Genoa / Repubblica di Genova / Republika Genui #1 (Claymore Castings OT43 Pavasiers 1 #1)

Image
Good morning!
Today, the first two Pavasiers from Claymore Castings. I will tell you my dear, that I fell in love with these models. They have an unbelievable amount of very nice and sharp details that add a lot of charm to the models.


In the Middle Ages, the Pavasiers were infantry soldiers equipped with Pavasie (large quadrangular shields).
This type of shield was quite high (even up to the height of the shoulders of an adult male), with a vertical convexity in the middle.
The transom was heavy, made of wood upholstered with sheet metal or leather, decorated with paintings.
       From the inside, it usually had straps similar to a harness, and in the middle a handle - large enough to hold with both hands. Often the bottom edge of the shield was fitted with a spur or spurs, enabling the shield to be immobilized by driving it into the ground; A wooden support was also sometimes used to provide additional grounding.
Sometimes it also had a notch (viewfinder) in the upper part, facilitating …
