    Those mini's are cool, and so are the horns, but I think trying to use them would be more trouble (and expense) than they're worth for the horns alone. They're easy enough to make.

    I'm pretty sure most Border Reivers weren't descended from Vikings, though they did the same things. Rape the cattle/sheep, stampede the women.

    Nah, it's just my sleep deprived brain missing a word again :(
    I missed "non-" in your first paragraph. Just thought it too funny not to share that the vikings were considered too pretty boys to let live. Who knows, might've been a reiver writing it, if literacy was a thing they had.

    No, an actual relevant canon (751) of CCC:

    " Heresy is the obstinate doubt, after baptism, of a truth which must be believed by divine and catholic faith"

    Hey guys, what do you all think of the Limited Edition sculpt for Cadin, from the Defiance game? Something seems a bit familiar about it. I wonder what level it will be unlocked at.

    Yeah... that's not the only definition nor the dominant definition at the time period in question (as we understand it to have been centuries after the fact)
    Look, at least you made me make a flippant tongue in the cheek description take a serious turn. Could have done without the meme, tbh.

    Nah found it a bit funny thats all. I never knew that this particular meme can be found agressive (?) in this particular context ;)
    Yea but we are talking about the those people from the current perspective (yet obviously we understand the differences in definitions of particular words or their scope have had changed during the time).

    I don't know the origin of the meme, all I know is that it us a face asking to be punched. It's a very punch worthy face, that meme. Might be just me, but I'm seriously lacking context for it to have any meaning beyond a Well Actually.

    The description you presented looks more like one for blasphemy, tbh. From what I can gather of "heresy" when I read between the lines is that it's a political rabble rouser against an organised religious group.

    In either case, let's try and not keep this discussion going :)

    This is true and good, but I think the others prefer discussions about which is the superior pastry over the definition of what makes a heretic and what makes a blasphemer ;)

    While Heretic is not in the Bible infidel is:
    ἄπιστος ápistos, ap'-is-tos; from G1 (as a negative particle) and G4103; (actively) disbelieving, i.e. without Christian faith (specially, a heathen); (passively) untrustworthy (person), or incredible (thing):—that believeth not, faithless, incredible thing, infidel, unbeliever(-ing).

    Looks good, and it seems to be an easy conversion.

    @Abrilete I personally think it looks good converted or not. Still the mini can be situated with a different piece of terrain and remake the famous vaulting Wulver scene that this pose pays homage to.

    I would trust the Bible to provide a stable definition of terms used differently in other cultures and other religions, particularly not concepts invented during the 5th century to discredit rivaling theologies ;)
    But would you as a more strongly religious individual than the forum average say a Tor and Oden worshipping people who specifically target monastaries of your religion with violent raids to be a heretic?

    @Mahtamori I just provided the original meaning of the words in question. Since words are twisted, taken out of context and their meanings are changed over time I though that knowing this would be beneficial. Regardless of what & how certain groups of people (monks, etc...) think a word should mean or what contexts it should be used in.

    I'm just a Bible Believer. The Word of God over religious institutions.

    As for being a person on the receiving end of a Viking raid, I'm honest vocal term used for them would be "pagan raiders." Infidel or heretic wouldn't have crossed my mind. Then again I'm of a different time but "raiders" certainly would fit the bill in my eyes.

    What is interesting is that the Byzantine/Eastern Roman Empire were the emperor's bodyguard known as the Varangians. The Vikings certainly left their mark on Europe but in more ways than we realize both good & bad. Kind of how the Romans, Gauls/French, Anglo-Saxons/Scotts/Irish, Spanish, Germanic Tribes, Slavic peoples & Turks left their marks in the annuals of history.
