If I have a heart.... VIKINGS!!! I love it!!!




I love Vikings!!!!

"What means.. What is Vikings????.. Are you kidding me???

C'mon..If you don't ever watch this tv serie...you must see it!
It's really well done and it's full of inspiration for every fantasy or historical wargamer and

The Protagonists.... Ragnar, Lagherta and Rollo


From Wikipedia

"Vikings is a Canadian-Irish historical drama television series, written and created by Michael Hirst for the television channel History It premiered on March 3, 2013 in the United States and Canada.

Filmed in Ireland, Vikings is inspired by the tales about the Viking Ragnar Lodbrok, one of the best-known Norse heroes and notorious as the scourge of France and Britain. It portrays Ragnar as a Viking farmer who pioneers the first daring raids into Britain with the support of fellow warriors, his brother Rollo, and his wife, the shieldmaiden Lagertha.
On April 5, 2013, History renewed Vikings for a ten-episode second season."

Fishing in the Viking way

Fight!!!




I suggest you to watch this show because it seems be really full of adventures, realistic and more close to the history than others tv series.
I'm watching it in original language with transcription in italian.. because sometimes i like listen original voices and also because i'm training to pass a english exam (BEC).

In my opinion VIKINGS is better than Game of Thrones....

STOP!.. before you think I'm mad, continue to read and be patience.. I'm explaying the reasons under my verdict.

Sailors, warriors, lord.... so much in this show!!
Rollo, the envious brother or Ragnar (He's also the Barbarian Rpg type... "I'm beauty, strong, attack all... stupid, but i love my brother... and I hate him"   -.


Floki, friends, mad, ship builder and the soul of group


GoT it's beautifull and great but it's made with a lots of investments... Not really realistic but it's taken from a novels saga...okokokok... more or less you understand my thinkings .. GoT it's one of the greatest fantasy novel that I ever red in my short life and i still prefer the books instead of the tv serie.






Vikings its a show... what you see it's what happen.. no more no less.. Genuin!! More realistic... and with real "fantastic appeal" of the Dark Age..

so stop and go to watch this serie.

BYE BYE my FRIENDS

Another Brick in the Wall


The Pillar system that I adopted to build a mudular walls system


hey friends

Great news here on MINIS INTO DARKNESS..

Thanks to the Italian Holiday due to the commemoration of the Liberation of Italy from the Fascism and Nazism, I worked on my Dungeon.

And that's my result:


Lateral view, a macro of the cardboard section which fill the groove in the pillars



As you can see, I finally show you part of the system that will permit me to build a new dungeon everytime i would.

These are coloumns which are going to stand up the walls.

The Coloumn

Here a close view of the groove on the wooden coloumn
Top view: see the 4 groves in the wood

And to conclude in great way..... TA-DAAAAA
A sample... a test... of my system



BYe BYE FOLKS!!!
