Dolph's Dworvolk Poaching Party: Nils Hodsen (Midblight Miniatures)

"A few hours fishing by Silverlake will do you immeasurable good (not you; quit wriggling and get on this hook!)"
Hello everyone!
I received a package with Kickstarermodels from Midblight Miniatures last week. The models look awesome and are full of great details and fantasy atmosphere!

The main responsible for these GREATNESS is the legend sculptor - Paul Muller (Games Workshop [e.g. perfect models for Mordheim's Witch Hunters], Privateer Press, Heresy Miniatures, Otherworld Miniatures and many, many more!).

Today the first model (and the bonus of a pig-like creature in thanks for participating in KS) bearing the name Nils Hodsen. As Paul told me: sorta named that one after my old 'Eavy Metal team friend :Nils Odsen/Neil Hodgson

"Kilka godzin wędkowania na Srebrzystym Jeziorze da ci niezmierzone dobro (nie ty; przestań się wiercić i wchodź na ten hak!)”
Witam serdecznie!
W zeszłym tygodniu przyszła do mnie paczka z modelami z Kickstarera od Midblight Miniatures

Mordheim Dwarf Troll Slayer

Hello everyone!
We will end May in dwarven and with a bang!
For a long time there was nothing to my dwarfs, and more generally another mercenary would be useful to Mordheim.
Trollslayer, one of my favorite designs. From what I remember GW released two Slayers to Mordheim. My design number 2 has a lot of different cool features and interesting details, and the general pose is also quite interesting and dangerous.
I invite you!

Troll Slayers are members of the morbid Dwarf cult whose followers are obsessed with seeking an honourable death in combat. 
       Having committed some unforgivable crime or been dishonoured in an irredeemable way, a Dwarf will forsake his home and wander off to die fighting the enemies of Dwarfkind.
       Troll Slayers are insanely dangerous individuals, psychopathic and violent.
However, there are few better fighters, so they are much sought after when
warriors are needed. Known as "Hired Axes",  Troll Slayers who come to Mordheim find plenty of opportunit…

Mordheim Ogre Bodyguard (Dunkeldorf Miniatures)

Hello everyone!
It's time for a short break in historical projects for fantasy! Another great miniature from Dunkeldorf today. An Ogre sculpted in the atmosphere of a good old Warhammer.
Will perfectly match Old World games as well as other fantasy RPGs.

Ogres are large, brutish creatures, standing some ten feet tall, and all of it bone and muscle.
For this reason they are much in demand as bodyguards and mercenaries, despite their lack of brains. A warband backed up by an Ogre makes a fearsome enemy, since Ogres are extremely dangerous fighters and a terrifying sight to behold when enraged. 
They happily accept any employer, as they are notoriously unbothered about who they fight for.

Leopold the Ogre Bouncer works as the bouncer at "The Prancing Peacock" a popular tavern located in Dunkeldorf.
Get ready for UPCOMING KICKSTARTER "Dunkeldorf: The Prancing Peacock - RPG Tavern Miniatures".
In a while I will show a bit of this upcoming collection ;-)


The Thirteen Years' War / Wojna Trzynastoletnia: Rudolf von Sagan's armed detachment / Rudolfa Żegańskiego zbrojny hufiec #1 (Perry Miniatures)

The third entry in turn about the Thirteen Years War (1454–1466) and the beginning of the third unit. First two:
Bernhard von Zinnenberg's mercenaries
Henrich Reuss von Plauen Junior and the Teutonic City Guards

       The riddle, what models did I use to present the prince along with his army bannerer?
Their English counterparts are a thousand times more famous, but fate treated all four equally...

III. Rudolf von Sagan
He was born between 1411 and 1418. Had the title of prince (years 1439-1454) of the independent Duchy of Żagań, which was then in Lower Silesia.

        The Duchy of Żagań established as one of the Polish district principalities during the period of regional division, located in the then south-west Poland.
It covered the western area of the Duchy of Głogów, from which it was separated in 1278. The prince's seat was the city of Żagań. It included Nowogród Bobrzański, Przewóz and Świętoszów. Until 1472 it remained in the hands of princes from the Piast dynasty.


The Thirteen Years' War / Wojna Trzynastoletnia: Henrich Reuss von Plauen Junior and the Teutonic City Guards / Henryk Reuss von Plauen Młodszy i krzyżacka straż miejska #1 (Perry Miniatures)

I warmly welcome!
Remains in the times of the Thirteen Years' War of 1454–1466 today. After a group of mercenaries, I wanted to paint the first few Teutonic Knights. Again, I used models from Perry Miniatures from boxes of mercenaries from the period 1450-1500 and several parts from troops from Agincourt Foot Knights 1415-29 box.

II. Preparation for the clash near Chojnice.
The Kingdom of Poland, the Prussian Union and mercenary troops approached Malbork (Marienburg) and the siege of the capital of the Teutonic State began. At the same time, a thousand soldiers came to Chojnice, led by Henryk Reuss von Plauen, to another castle not yet captured in this phase of the war. He was an experienced knight, nephew of the Elbląg commander (future Grand Master of the same name, that's why they were often mistaken). His uncle at that time defended Malbork alongside the Grand Master.

       It is worth adding that the siege of the Teutonic capital by Poles and mercenary Czechs was greatly ineff…
