Russian Federation - Tehnolog Vikings - The Swordsman

That broadsword looks almost as big as he is, but big swords were a real thing for a while back in the day. What if I had to use that thing? hmmmm, I'd have to hook it up to a boat and use it as an anchor LOL Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina

Monsoon Skies

Bettina has been taking some great photos but just hasn't wanted to blog them, finding it easier to just post on facebook. I'd love to post more of her work but there's very little time to do my own photos but I couldn't pass up this opportunity to share some pics and video that she took a couple of days ago. We are in the midst of the Monsoon season here in the American Southwest and when the atmosphere gets really juiced we have some wonderful vistas - all right outside our door. Enjoy!

Russian Federation - Tehnolog Vikings - The Axeman

If I recall my history correctly (without looking at references) the Viking's first recorded appearance in England was a raid on a monastary close to the east coast. They laid waste to the inhabitants and the structure and that began a couple hundred years of pure mayhem at the hands of these new invaders. It's fitting these figures come from Russia - Land of The Rus, a group of Swedish Vikings! This warrior is carrying a battle axe and heavy shield of wooden planks held by a copper(?) frame. Enjoy!
