Gold field by vladodlhy
Gold field
Photo of barley field near my village Hrachovište.
That locality is called "Pod Kolným" - under battlefield, because there is hill "Kolné" - battlefield, named by skirmishes which happened there in medieval.
I like this place very much :)

Pyrtak the Melanchlaen by vladodlhy
Pyrtak the Melanchlaen
Here's my first official original character - lonely scythian warrior and assassin Pyrtak the Melanchlean.

Pyrtak is of mixed origin, because his father was from tribe of Royal Scythians (Paralati) and his mother was of Melanchlaeni or Black cloaks (they were probably Finns and lived north of Royal Scythians). Therefore is Pyrtak called "Melanchlaen".
His mixed origin was also cause of degradation by other memebers of tribe (he lived among Scythians). Pyrtak couldn't kill enemy for long times youth and that brought him more dishonor. He couldn't stand derogations anymore and killed his biggest enemy in the tribe, but then he had to run away and abandon his family. 
In the territory of Royal Scythians is every loner very fishy and considered as bandit, murder, renegade or foreign spy, because all the men of Royal Scythans devotedly served the king and therefore it was to dangerous to stay there, so he continued farther to south. In hellenic trade colonial towns were good chances to earn money for survive - as mercenary.
Later  he started to do dirtier jobs, but better paid - murders. For greek merchants, which borrowed too much money and could not pay back was easier to hire assassin which killed the lender - that was the job of Pyrtak. After many years he became professional warrior and killer, and travelled across many countries as mercenary, also spent some time in Achaemenid empire  and learned languages as Greek or Persian.  
During Persian invasion in 512 BC was Pyrtak hired by scythian king as commander of light horsearcher cavalry, which attacked Persian camps at nigh and did skirmishes and special operations.
Thruogh his skills Pyrtak became legendary person in Scythia and adjoining lands.
He's excellent archer (therefore king choosed him as commander of horsearchers) and in battle use only bow and akinakes or hand clutches. He doesn't like using of heavier weapons like axe or spear.

Pyrtak is armed with decoreated scythian bow, gorytos, akinakes fixed on thigh by achaemenid fashion and knife. He's wearing usual scythian dress, but sign and memory of his origin is black melanchlaenian tunic under his scythian jacket.

No I don't use premade illustrations, just pictures from Osprey books, also historical and archeological sources and my own phantasy.
Yes, I am quite familiar with that era.
And why do you ask? :)
