Podsumowanie Marca // March Summary

Hello everyonein the March summary!
Witam wszystkich w marcowym podsumowaniu!

March, like January and February, did not belong to the most abundant in terms of number of posts.
However, not that the whole point?
I am very pleased with the beginning of another project, this time it's Joannites to Crescent and The Cross system, the equivalent of SAGA in the era of the Crusades. Next month, you can expect the following units of the Crusaders and Hospitaller brothers. There will also be another brave Irish and something from antiquity - the Romans, Greeks, Gauls, or Thracians. We'll see ... Marzec, podobnie jak styczeń i luty, nie należał do najbardziej obfitych pod względem ilości postów. Jednakże nie o to przecież chodzi? Jestem bardzo zadowolony z początków kolejnego projektu, tym razem są to Joannici do systemu Crescent and The Cross, czyli odpowiednik SAGI w dobie krucjat. W przyszłym miesiącu możecie się spodziewać kolejnych jednostek krzyżowców i braci zakonnych. Nie zabraknie tak…

Crescent and The Cross: Hospitaller: Warlord

"Tuitio Fidei et obsequium pauperum!"

In today's brief I would like to introduce my honorable visitors, warlord of the Hospitallers forces, the preparation of the 5-point army to the Crescent and The Cross game.

At the beginning I would like to explain that it will be a "loose interpretation" about a monk from the Kingdom of Jerusalem. , Converting it some time ago with models of Fireforge and Games Workshop - hence in this case loose approach to the historic inventory. Although I've added a few tidbits from the set of Fireforge Templars. This is why I decided to use this model and attach it to thecollection ...



W dzisiejszym krótkim wpisie chciałbym przedstawić Szanownym odwiedzającym dowódce moich sił Szpitalników, przygotowywanych na potrzeby 5 punktowej armii do systemu bitewnego Crescent and The Cross.
Na początku chciałbym wytłumaczyć, iż będzie to "luźna interpretacja" na temat zakonnika z Królestwa Jerozolimy. Skonwertowałem go już jakiś czas …

Crescent and The Cross: Hospitaller: Milites Christi Mounted Brothers #2

Image
Hi everyone!

On this solemndayforthe RomanChristians,I wish to presentfinishedfirst Milites Christi Mounted Brothers (Hearthguard) unit to my Crusaders to Crescent and The Cross game (I suppose I also used it toLionRampant).
Modelscome fromFireforge-with small various modificationswith othersets of historical plastics. The models look pretty good, butthe whole timeI like most about the quality of sets of Perry brothers.

My Hospitaller, modeled on the twelfth century, tried to give a little dark character. Perhaps the most visible is in the selection of colors and shades.
In preparation I have another unit in theform of a second cavalry, infantry and crossbowmen.
In the meantime,I invite you to the Holy Land ...

Gaelic-Irish Kern #1

Hello friends!
Today I wishto presentto youthe firstfourIrishwarriorscalledKern.
Kernwasan Irishsoldier,a specializedlightweightwalkerin medievalIreland.
A Kern was a Gaelic soldier, specifically a light infantryman in Ireland during the Middle Ages.
The word kern is an anglicisation of the Middle Irish word ceithern [kʲeθʲern] or ceithrenn meaning a collection of persons, particularly fighting men. An individual member is a ceithernach. The word may derive from a conjectural proto-Celtic word *keternā, ultimately from an Indo-European root meaning a chain Kern was adopted into English as a term for a Gaelic soldier in mediaeval Ireland and as cateran, meaning Highland marauder, bandit.

Kerns notably accompanied bands of the mercenary Gallóglaigh as their light infantry forces, where the Gallowglass filled the need for heavy infantry. This two-tier "army" structure though should not be taken to reflect earlier Irish armies prior to the Norman invasions, as there were…
