A little bit of small medieval town.
Few months ago we have managed to find a nice house,moved in, settled down, had some parties and now it is time to come back to hobby. The very first thing you need to do is find a piece of wood for the table (done), enrolled some friends into Warhammer (done) and start making the terrain. Not done. Continue reading
Did you ever wonder how much could you pay for your favorite mini?
I was browsing eBay one day to check availability of Bretonnian foot knights. I have found some, checked to watch and 2 days before auction end I decided to put my monies into it. But just in few hours those auctions went crazy. Continue reading
“…Thou shalt give unto thine glorious liege the taxes that he requires.

Because 20th of January is a good day to start.
I remember this day when the first time in my life my friend had shown me Citadel Miniature of Bretonnian Knight of the Realm Hero. I was barely 17 years old. Today I am 32 and this is almost twice of my age then, this mini is still with me. Repainted few times, most of the time laying in a box untouched by a paintbrush. Betrayed by Hordes of Chaos, Skaven, Dark Elves, Empire, High Elves and recently by Chaos Warriors.
But I made my promise one day to my cousin: I will paint Bretonnian army some day. I will paint it to the highest standard I can to honour my memories from my late childhood. I want to be that boy again, looking at my knights with banners, proudly galloping through a battlefield, to feel the excitement of upcoming meeting with friends to play a game. And of course, being a little bit vainglorious I want people to look at my army wit awe 😉
