Big and Tall and Short and Plump

I missed updating last week, but this week has seen some good progress on my painting desk. I've got a bunch of diverse stuff I'm chewing my way through - Adeptus Titanicus stuff, a copy of Blackstone Fortress, a fantasy Halfling army, more High Elves and some other odds and ends that need doing. First on deck is a second Warlord Titan for my War Griffons Legion.The complete force.The second Warlord amps up the total game size I can play, and brings some much needed diversity to the weapons systems I can deploy. I've still got a second plasma cannon arm to paint, but I will probably do that in colors for my Legio Mortis force so they have some more options.Clamor Aquilae - The Eagle's Cry - brings its massive firepower to the battlefield.View of the plasma cannon and carapace lasers.The other arm has a mighty power fist, ready to crush the foes of the Emperor.If you follow me on Twitter (@Cwalton73), you've probably been watching me chip away at a bunch of Halfling models from Westfalia Miniatures f

Medieval Tabletop Wargaming Day - Lion Rampant

Last weekend saw my first wargaming outing of the year in the form of attending a Medieval wargaming day organised by messrs David Imrie and Ian Beal over in Leven.There were twelve participants in the first game if the day which was a six a-side barney using the Lion Rampant rules. The terrain and setting provided by David along with a good dollop of the troops with some of the others bringing along a goodly amount of re-enforcement's.The battle was a grand affair and lasted slightly longer than planned but I think the Lancastrian's getting the advantage by the end the game overall.The second game of the day was aa slay of three tag team games with everyone teaming up with their previous opponent against another tag team with a 25pt a piece force made up of troops you had available again using the Lion Rampant Rules.This game played a bit quicker as was to be expected and my team mate and I fought to a defeat by a narrow margin.Great day out and thanks to David and Ian for organising the day.

Treasure Markers - something to fight for! // Znaczniki celów bitewnych

Battle/Target markers for miniature wargaming. They will be used mostly in Dragon Rampant and Advanced Song of Blade and Heroes. Coblestone bases were made by me and bits were produced by various miniature manufactures. As long as I remember these were Ristul's Extraordinary Market, Fireforge Games, minimonsters.eu, Games Workshop and  Perry Miniatures.Znaczniki celów stworzone do wykorzystania w kilku grach. Myślę że dobrze sprawdzą się w czasie potyczek w Dragon Rampant, Advanced Song of Blade and Heroes oraz okazjonalnie do gier planszowych i D&D. Podstawki zrobiłem sam natomiast bitsy pochodzą od kilku różnych producentów: Ristul's Extraordinary Market, Fireforge Games, minimonsters.eu, Games Workshop oraz Perry Miniatures.

[EN/PL] Landsknechts V: Wir sind des Geyers Schwarzer Haufen / We are Florian Geyer's Black Company / Jesteśmy Czarnym Hufcem Geyera

Hello everyone!The first historical entry on DwarfCrypt in the new year today. I return to one of my favorite topics- Landsknechts.I will take a closer look at the Black Company by Florian Geyer and show three new soldiers painted for the occasion. Other entries related to this multicolored formation can be found below:I. Sacco di Roma / The Sack of Rome / Złupienie Rzymu (1527)II. Landsknechts II: Dopplesoldiers / Landsknechci - Podwójnożołdacy (Artizan Designs)III. Landsknechts III: Regiment (Warlord Games)IV. Landsknechts IV: Recruitment / Rekrutacja (Warlord Games)The original German name of the Black Company was Schwarzer Haufen. The term Schwarz (black) pointed out the ideological distance of the company from the large peasant army at that time, which called itself the Heller Haufen (Hell meaning "light-colored"). Black Lancknechts probably also distinguished black elements of uniforms. The German word Haufen was the name the peasants gave to their armed companies.

Necromancer // Nekromanta

The miniature is called Satheras, Elf Warlock. It was produced by Reaper Miniatures and sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I bought it several years ago as it was released as one of the first minis in Reaper Bone Series. Figurka wydana kilka lat temu przez Reaper Miniatures w serii Bone. Tani plastyczny materiał,z którego została wyprodukowana nie ułatwiał malowania, ale jak na model za kilka złotych wyszło całkiem dobrze.

Mounted Agincourt Knights by Perry Miniatures

Pre-orders are now being taken!Mounted Agincourt Knights 1415-29Designed by Alan PerryThe figures in this set represent European Knights from 1415-1429. Armour and clothing variants allow European cavalry (French, English, German, Italian etc.) to be built. Up to half the figures can be assembled to represent light horse; mounted sergeants or archers. There are many arm, torso and leg variants to allow a huge amount of individuality and poses to be achieved. Many of the arms have the weapons attached but others are without hands (which are attached to various weapons) to allow more flexibility for those who like to personalize their figures. There are some bodies with fixed left arms but most are with separate ones.The bodies are split so you can introduce a bit of movement from the waist as the helmets of the period didn’t allow the head much side to side movement. Three heads on each frame have the visors sculpted on them in the locked-down position. The idea was to fit as many variations of the riders as p

[EN/PL] A few words about mercenaries in the Middle Ages / Słów kilka o Najemnikach w średniowieczu (Westfalia Menatarms)

Welcome!In the ending week, I managed to paint three very interesting and nicely made resin figurines from Westfalia. They will join captain Strong a few months ago.I allowed myself to make tarotistic patterns and symbols from Goeteia on the shields.        I think that models will work great in historical and fantasy systems as a complement to an army or human band of adventurers and mercenaries.And I would like to say a few words about the last ones...The mercenaries were (are) a military formation consisting of volunteers fighting for money. They are usually characterized by military service for a given state, city, ruler or organization, or even a private person.Mercenaries can be rented to fight in virtually any matter, because these formations are not guided by idealism (only pocket wealth is what counts!).Mercenaries are people for whom war is a profession, from which they derive the means to live (pay) and enrich themselves.       In medieval Europe, the economi
