THIS MAP IS OUTDATED - PLEASE SEE THE LATEST VERSION HWS Medieval Revisited - Faction Map v.1.22 by Gambargin






A Conceptual Faction Map for the Historically Wrong Sketch Series - Medieval Revisited, which is based on the original medieval series, but with less generalization and much more anachronism. The Map will serve as my reference for the various Women Warriors which i will be depicting in their battle/court attires respective to the generalized culture that they represent.

The reason why i decided to recreate the original series is to give it more flavor and detailed presentation, something which i really enjoy, and also because some drawings were left in unfinished state. It is also because i love medieval history where knights rode proudly on their stallions, culture flourished under exotic and elegant trades, as well the tale of kings, their princes and princess. Of course, these are still romantic portrayal, but it has its own appeal.

The regions represented in the map is by no means culturally and geo-politically accurate. They are simply to pinpoint the region on which the Women Warriors will be depicted from. After all, there is a lot of anachronism in the historically wrong sketch series...but certainly any feedback is most welcomed to make the series more enjoyable.

===================================================================================================

This faction represent the united Iberian forces, similar to that of the various christian kingdoms that has existed before the reconquista, like the Portuguese, Castile & Leon, Navarra, Galicia and Asturias.

2. Al-Mamlakati Al-Murnakus (Maghreb)

4. Royaume de Frankonia (Latin/Franks)
Or simply, the french. They represents the beacon of the series' medieval feudalism. I will take my the History of the Capetian France as a basis for this faction.

5. Duche de Nortmanuss (Latin/Norman)

The Normans, simply because they are cool and badass Maybe subject to interpretation). NEvertheless, it's a rather anachronistic depiciton of independent norman power, whose inspiration was taken from William of Normandy before he launched his invasion of England

6. Celtic Federation (Celtic - Welsh/Irish/Scottish)
The original inhabittants of the brithish isles, from caledonia, hibernia and wales, will be represented in this faction. Expect dome pictish and irish influence.

8. Imperium Germanium Sacrum (Germanic/Central) or Kaiserreich
The Germans, all their heavy knight and warmongering mercenaries. It's a rather anachronistic representation of various german counties and duchies in a united empire.

Grand Principality of Kaviarov, dedicated to my love fo russian (eastern slavic) and caviar. This is based on the various eastern slavic grand principalities like the Rus, Kievan as well as Novgorod Republic.

Around 30,000 bc. in Europe, modern man and neanderthal coexisted for a few thousand years. They must have run into each other from time to time until neanderthal eventually went extinct.

...kennt ihr meine Farben?

("I am a Prussian, knowest thou my colours?", the title comes from one prussian song, so please stop accusing me of being a Prussian :D [link])

pheeew...my latest work, an episode from the Franco-Prussian war (1870) ...the war that humiliated France , abolished the Second Empire and created the Second German Empire , thereby ending the proces of unification of German states...

Prussian columns storming the French positions during the battle of Gravelotte- the turning point of the war, that ultimately confirmed Prussian superiority (you probably noticed my pickelhaube-fascination :P ) ... but during that war a surprise also happened to the Prussians...their forces armed with famous breech loaded Dreyse rifles met the French equipped with much better Chassepot rifles, with farther range and better construction..this forced the Prussian units to "flee forwards" to strike the French as fast as possible so that French soldiers couldn't use the main advantage of their rifles- range (1300 yards compared to prussian 650 yards).


It took my a very long time to finish this piece...you know...summer...laziness and simple impatience...(I couldn't draw more than 30 minutes a day ) but I hope the final result isn't that bad and comes up to my previous works... (I doubt if it's better :P )

Enjoy :)

A new wicked idea which emerged from conversation with ... ;p Namely a victorian colonisation of Mars which is an effect of an enormous technological development of the world during the second half of the XIX century...Te main powers of our world : the British Empire, France, Germany, Russian Empire and the U.S begun sending expeditions on other planets of the Solar system...in 1879 British project "Ares" begun and a 10 thousand large expedition of soldiers, scientists and naturalists boarded on modernised Royal Navy battleships and cruisers (now the Space Expedition Fleet) flew to Mars...and they found life forms such as those you can find on the drawing...

on it you can see te british soldiers and their equipment after "Ares" project circa 1883, an infantryman of the 24 second Warwickshire Regiment and a private of the 21st Lancers mounted on a creature nicknamed "Spencer"..between them you can see a Marsian native....

Soldiers are equipped with Martini- Henry rifle with an oxygen tank necessary to ignition of the bullet inside the rifle...as you probably noiticed the British wear some kind of a gas mask...precisely a chlorophile mask converting the carbon dioxide (the main gas existing in Mars atmosphere) into pure oxygen...the rucksack apart from being a part of the gas mask system is equipped with a personal radio system used to communicate (a cable from the rucksack to the gas mask connects the microphone in the mask with the rest of the mechanism)...as you can see soldiers are dressed in a traditional red jackets,standard infantry and cavalry equipment of the period and colonial pith helmet..under the uniform they have a rubber spacesuit protecting them form the deadly UV rays which are stronger than on Earth, gloves and heavy boots...

crazy isn't it ;) ?

this wicked project totally absorbed me and maybe soon you'll see a comic page or a battleship of the roal navy...it depends on the copyrights of battleships which I find better than mine which you can see in Scraps ... :D

Living in the wasteland can be harsh. Pesky towns not "sharing" gas, do-gooders always picking on you, giant mutated critters the size of busses and a general lack of respect towards you and your friends. if this sounds familiar, than the Abrams Redux is for you. upgraded from a M1A2, the redux has all the old world beauty and firepower but upgraded with the latest in salvaged raider tec. featuring a 120 mm barrel with rail gun attachment, coaxial machine gun, loaders .50, dual .50 commanders turret and back mounted .50 for any tailgaters. The redux features the latest in defensive technology as well, smoke launchers, infrared targeting, raider tec guidance/ radio jammer dome and on board NBC detection suite. Additional wasteland survival armor has been added for encounters with the ones that are dumb enough to fight back.When out in the wasteland and you must kill every last motherclucker, accept no substitutes, get a redux today!

This is my kitbashed Abrams tank, built up in post apocalyptic style. Built from a 1/35 Tamiya "operation Iraqi freedom" Abrams, bit bin details, scratch built details and custom raider figurine. Hand painted with enamels and weathered with art acrylics and pastels. This project was super fun and a good excuse to be shamelessly un-realistic.
I had built the original Abrams kit about a year ago and really was never happy with it. I had messed up a ton of things and I had always considered it a failure. So it sat on a high shelf for a year collecting dust, mocking me.
After all the time and work i put in on my PBR model, I it thought it would be good to work on something a bit more relaxing and a lot less time consuming. Over the last few weeks i have seen some really awesome Abrams models/art and figured it would be fun to tear apart mine and make something I would be happy with. I gave myself a one week time limit and went to work. All in all this was really too much fun and i am happy with how it came out. a few things here and there could of been better but I wanted to stick to my one week limit (kind of like speed paint I guess, see what i could get done on a deadline) anyways hopefully soon ill find a good spot outdoors and take some shots of it with my screaming hawk.
