Test of Courage – Helpful Resources

Here we are again with another helpful page of resources! This time for War Banner/Footsore Miniatures upcoming game Mortal Gods – Test of Courage. You can find further information on their Facebook page, but we’re cramming as much into this Test of Courage resources page as we can! Before looking into the project I can safely say my knowledge of the ancient Greek world was limited to a few films exhibiting sketchy historical accuracy, as well as a handful books. I did a chunk of reading and picked up loads of useful information. So, a bit like the Test of Honour page I did I thought I’d try to compile some stuff and help people out. I’ll try to keep adding new bits to this Test of Courage resources page as I find them or others suggest them.

[EN/PL] The Story of Brian Boru / Historia Briana Śmiałego (Footsore Miniatures)

Hello everyone!I return today to the colorful history of early Medieval Ireland and give another story about the retreat, bravery and deeds that are permanently inscribed in the pages of the history of the Green Island.The models painted today, the army standard bearer and Brian Boru come from one of my favorite producers of metal historical minis - Footsore Miniatures.The banner is the work of Little Big Men Studios.BRIAN BORU - THE LAST GREAT HIGH KING OF IRELAND: The line between Irish Legend and Irish Myth has often been blurred, especially as the retelling of heroic deeds has been passed on through generations.        Brian Boru was no legend although his life deeds were legendary. He was very much a real man and was in fact the last great High King of Ireland and perhaps the greatest military leader the country has ever known.        Brian Boru was born Brian Mac Cennétig. He mother was sister to the mother of Conor, the King of Connaught. His

[EN/PL] Björn Ironside. An untold story / Björn Żelaznoboki. Historia prawdziwa (Stronghold-Terrain)

Welcome!Today I come back to the theme of the Vikings, breaking the next figure. Some time ago I presented you the true story of Halfdan the Black, and today I invite you to the saga about Björn Ragnarsson.Although I like the character of the viking created by the actor Alexander Ludwig in the Vikings series, I have to say with a heartache that about 90% of it is a figment of writers.The fate of the real Björn (if we can believe sagas and stories) looked completely different...Today's sponsorship is Stronghold-Terrain, which has many excellent original figures, including Björn Ragnarsson, described today.The model is made of white metal and is modeled on the 4-5 season from the Vikings series. The miniature consists of three parts: bodies, hands with ax and shield.And I think it's sweeping!Visit Stronghold-Terrain and FB And now...Björn Ironside was a legendary king of Sweden who lived sometime in the 9th century. Viking is said to have been the first ruler of the Munsö dynasty.A powe
