Felix Jaeger (Gotrek & Felix novels)

Hello everyone!
I present a cult character from the world of Warhammer today (no, not Age of Sigmar, but a real Hammer) and one of my favorites from this universe.
I painted him again after over 20 years. I chose a classic look, as described in the books about the adventures of Gotrek and Felix. I heartily dislike any shit-green coats and other nonsense. Felix must be Felix :)

Felix Jeager came from a wealthy merchant family. As the son of an influential merchant, he lived a carefree and fun life. He studied at the University of Altdorf to become a poet in the future. He was also a good swordsman and loved to duel.

        His and Slayer's paths crossed after a series of unfortunate events. During one of the duels, he accidentally killed one of the students. The consequence of this was expulsion from the scholars and disinheritance by his father.

       Felix's next prank was to participate in the protest against the window tax. To chase the crowd, the authorities sent the E…

DwarfCrypt celebrates 1 million views! / DwarfCrypt świętuję 1 milion wyświetleń!

I warmly welcome!
Today is an opportunity for BIG THANKS to YOU all! DwarfCrypt celebrates 1 million views!
I still remember how good a few years ago I reached 100,000 and it seemed a lot and it was unthinkable that someone would like to look at these scribbles and read a few historical and fantastic curiosities from time to time :)

Over the years, the website has undergone several layout changes, to stay the current one, in my opinion, quite transparent.
Important moments in DwarfCrypt's life include changing the domain from blogspot to pl
andgiving a few interviews
Also managed to make some money of blogging and get dozens of great models and books for review.

However, the most important are YOU, my dear. Thanks to your visits and dozens of comments, I can proudly and with even greater pleasure create new entries :)

Mikołaj Powała from Taczew's armed men / Zbrojni Mikołaja Powały z Taczewa

Hello everyone!
My relocation is over. There are still a few boxes left to unpack, but more importantly things, including paints, are already in place.
I'm back to the mini-project that I started a year ago and it's time to finish it.
       Talking about a small group of armed men (ideal as, for example, a bretonian band to Mordheim, or as an introduction to a larger army in Lion Rampant) under the command of the Polish knight Mikołaj Powała from Taczew.

       In this project I used mainly metal models from Claymore Castings, which I consider to be one of the best from the mid-14th to the second half of the 15th.
As the title Polish Knight, I used the model I bought some time ago on Kickstarter.
Fit quite well for a knight (waiting for a mount) from the turn of the 14th and 15th centuries and has a "dog's mouth" helmet popular for knights.
I hope you like it :)

Witam wszystkich!
Moja przeprowadzka dobiegła końca. Zostało jeszcze do wypakowania kilka pudeł, ale co ważni…

Mordheim: Night Goblins from Karak Azgal - Black Orc Bodyguard (Rotten Factory Miniature)

Hello everyone!
There have been a lot of entries recently devoted to long-bearded gentlemen, so today, for the sake of balance, another greenskin for my Night Goblins band from the fallen dwarf fortress Karak-Azgal.
A mercenary - the Black Orc - will join the already painted shaman and a few goblins.
        Using an ordinary Black Ork from GW would be too easy, so my Mercenary Blade will be a Rotten Factory mini (as far as I can see, it is no longer available for sale, so the better this unique piece will look in my collection).

History. Part I.
Karak Azgal, formerly known as Karak Izril, was once an exceptionally wealthy dwarven stronghold that was conquered by greenskins and skaven.

When the world was still young, the dwarf strongholds beneath the World's Edge Mountains stretched from Karak Vlag in what is now Kislev to Karak Zorn in the south.
The dwarf dug the mountains for rich deposits of precious stones and metal ores, especially gromril. Anyone who dared to get in their way - an…
