[EN/PL] Dead Marshes Spectre #2 / Widmo z Martwych Bagien #2

Hello Everyone!Return to Dead Marshes with Gollum, Frodo and Sam today. In the PREVIOUS Part you could learn a bit about the history of this land, where it got its name from, and what event contributed to the appearance of specific ... inhabitants here.        To summarize, the Dead Marshes spread across the Dagorlad plain, north of Mordor, on the eastern shore of the Anduin.Their name comes from the battle that was fought there on Dagorlad, in which great armies met: the people and elves of the Last Alliance fought against Sauron's forces. After the battle, the corpses of elves and people were buried on the plain, then flooded. That's how the title Dead Marshes were created.        In the one of the chapter of Two Towers entitled Through the marshes, a route of hobbit wandering: Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee, led by Gollum.The Hobbits saw the dead underwater and vicious flames hovering over the swamps, which Gollum called the "candles o

[EN/PL] Thorin's Company / Drużyna Thorina: Gloin, Bofur & Oin (Scibor Miniatures)

Warmly welcome!Long, ah long I haven't painted anything from Scibor's Monstrous Miniatures. Therefore, it's time to make up for it and today I invite you to the first post about Tolkien's Thorin's Company.        In this series, I will present the team of dwarves, and paint which is painted on, followers of the Lonely Mountain. In the first entry Gloin, Bofur and Oin. I painted the last two a few years ago and now I just changed the names on the bases to match the design.      What is new is the dwarf model that will serve me as Gloin. Just painted, while maintaining the characteristic features to fit the rest.I hope you like my idea of alternative dwarves from "Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien.GloinQuest for EreborIn TA 2799, Glóin was known to have fought in the Battle of Azanulbizar, the last battle of the War of the Dwarves and Orcs. In TA 2941, Glóin and his brother Óin, along with his cousins Dwalin and Balin, were among the Dwarves accompanying Thorin and Company during

[EN/PL] Dead Marshes Spectre / Widmo z Martwych Bagien

Hello everyone!Today, a short break from the historical atmosphere for my favorite Lord of the Rings series. I decided to paint one of the models that I have already taken for over a decade.        Many metal patterns of models that came out during the premiere of the movies and shortly after them have undoubted charm and great painting potential. I come back to them very, very kindly.The Spectre is a creature haunting the Dead Marshes through where Frodo, Sam and Gollum passed in the Two Towers, on their journey to the heart of Mordor. They are not ghosts or zombies, and as Gollum used to say, something like specters: "You can't touch them, feel them. Maybe it's just shapes, without a body?"But let's give voice to master Tolkien and the three heroes traveling through the Dead Marshes...In the dark half-light, as far as the eye could see in south and east, wetlands and swamps stretched out before them. Fog stretched over the stinking backwaters, a suffocating odor hung in the air. In the d

[EN/PL] Merry & Pippin at Pelennor Fields (and the Westfalia Halflings kickstarter!) / Meriadok Brandybuck i Peregrin Tuk podczas bitwy na Polach Pelennoru.

                                                                    Hello all! Today, an entry for the ongoing KICKSTARTER "The Third Breakfast" from WESTFALIA.The collection, which is already a BIG success, offers us beautiful, various designs of halflings. I have already had the opportunity to paint a few minis from WESTFALIA (people and halflings) and I must admit that the (resin) models looks great.Check for yourself:https://www.westfaliaminiatures.com/https://www.facebook.com/WestfaliaMiniatures/https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/westfaliaminiatures/the-third-breakfast/postsOn this occasion, I painted two halflings, whom I decided to style at least a little bit for Meriadoc and Peregrin, Merry and Pippin, from the Return of the King, more precisely from the battle of Minas Tirith, when the fate of separated friends inter

[EN/PL] Amon Hen: Uruk-hai #1 (Warhead Studio Ancient Hands #1)

I greet you warmly!I come back to the work of J.R.R. Tolkien in the form of orcs today! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, as Saruman used to say, "The Orc era has come!"        The more important reason, however, was my shame. I've bought a group of Uruk-hai scouts, a good year ago, that would be nice to paint and join the forces of evil.       I decided to make a mini project divided into 3 parts with orcs from Isengard under the name Amon Hen, which is the place of the Battle of the Followship of the Ring with the orc unit. The place of Boromir's death and kidnapping of the hobbits...To today's entry I have also added two elements of the wargaming terrain from Warhead Studio, which perfectly fit me to the ruins of the former watchtower of Gondor guarding the northern extremities of this land.I encourage you to take a look at this manufacturer's offer. It has many great elements of terrain and bases:https://warheadstudio.com/Warhead Studio FBAmon Hen. Part I. Uruk-hai.Uruk-ha

[EN/PL] Mablung and Doriath elves / Mablung i elfy z Doriathu (Oathmark Elves #1)

Hello everyone!I am returning to my favorite work by J.R.R. Tolkien "Simarillion" today and invite you to the first entry dedicated to one of the kingdoms of elves, which is mentioned by Gandalf or Elrond in the Lord of the Rings. I am talking about Doriath, the kingdom of elves located in Beleriand, inhabited by Sindar elves. Thingol and his wife Meliana exercised power in the kingdom.       More about the kingdom itself next time I leave, and today my Dears, let me devote a few words to Mablung, a supporting protagonist,in many stories in the Silmarillion...To today's entry I used the elf models from Oathmark: Battles of the Lost AgeMablung, along with Daeron, came to the Mereth Aderthad bearing gifts and friendship from Doriath. He also served in Menegroth in some unknown position of command. Together with Beleg Cúthalion, was one of the great captains of the Sindar, and were the only Elves of Doriath to fight with the Union of Maedhros in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, as King Thingol wo

[EN/PL] About how the Hobbits celebrate. Part II / O tym jak Hobbici świętują. Część II (Grabblecast Dog and Kennel)

Welcome!Today, a return to the theme of the Hobbits and their ways to celebrate. I used this entry:Two archaic models of halflings from the 80's from Games Workshop, which previously "bathed with paint" and painted anew.and a great terrain element from my friends from Grabblecast. This time it is a dog and a kennel. What I can say about this KIT is great details and wood sculpting. Many producers could learn such beautiful sculptures. I hope that it will appeal to a few people as a part of the terrain on the battle table.https://www.grabblecast.com/https://www.facebook.com/grabblecast/And now...We get a lot of information about the Hobbits in the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, but of course not everything. Many details are in the notes of Master Tolkien, in various studies made by his son, and we can only guess the details.I wrote some time ago about the Pipe Smoking Day, which hobbits like very much, and now I invite you to the next part - A New Year.      The year of a small people, like o

[EN/PL] Tauriel and the Mirkwood Elf Rangers / Tauriel i elfowie z Mrocznej Puszczy

Hello everyone!At the beginning, the word of explanation. I consider the Hobbit novel, the pen of Master Tolkien, to be one of the most important and the greatest fantasy works. I am a fan of every word, each character and event, which stands in opposition to the movie, which I like very much on average. I did not like the idea of the director to add to the original masterpiece a few threads and characters just like Tauriel, an elf who is in vain to find on the Hobbit's pages.        Tauriel appears in the The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and the Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies movies and for Tolkien's fans was quite controversial, although the beauty of actress Evangeline Lilly rewarded at least part of this experiment.       Peter Jackson, his wife and friend Fran Walsh, invented Tauriel to expand the world of elves from the Mirkwood Forest and introduce a female character to a male-dominated cast.        I decided, because a characte

Hobbit was known for its exceptionally large height, as it measured 4.5 feet. Thanks to this he could ride a horse, which was unheard of for the Hobbits - those who preferred ponies.Many of his descendants lived in North Quarter. They initiated the Tuk family from the North.F

[EN/PL] A few words about hobbits and Wargs! / Słów kilka o hobbitach i Wargach! (Grabblecast's Stumps with Mushrooms)

Hello everyone!We have another weekend, so a new entry on DwarfCrypt coming. Today, thanks to Grabblecast friends for a set, I invite you to the next article about hobbits from the of J.R.R. Tolkien.       The reviewed elements are resin tree trunks from the set (Stumps with Mushrooms), which you can use on mockups, dioramas or miniatures bases. Especially for this occasion, I painted a few sample models and placed them on stumps - you can see the final effect below.'Stumps with Mushrooms' consists of 5 resin stumps overgrown with a wood hub.Cast elements are very nice, and the sculpture will satisfy every player and collector.I will return to the set on the occasion of the next models for Wood Elves (or Wargs!), And today ...The Hobbits, despite their short stature, are relatively strong. If they only exert themselves, they can lift their weight equal to their weight, and sometimes even heavier things!Halflings are not masters of climbing, but easily climb the trees and keep on small ga
