Troy: Fall of a City

I have a feeling this show will be underwhelming, but of course I will watch it.  Low expectations means room for surprised enjoyment.  Strange that they keep reproducing this story when there are so many other epic stories of that age that people could reproduce that hold just as much if not more value to the time period and contain even greater material of interest.  I wonder how hard of a sell it is to produce something new in the historical fiction genre.

Historical Reconstructions Part XIII

Fernando G. Baptista

I truly wish I could find more work by this amazing artist.  I’m not completely sure that all these pieces of work are his creation alone or if it’s a team of artists at National Geographics.  If you would like to keep up with what he’s doing you can check in with him here.

Historical Reconstructions Part XII

Kelvin Wilson

 

I was lost in this artist illustrations long into the night.  I wasn’t sure at first how I would categorize his pieces.  But after a while of studying them I think its best they go under historical reconstructions.  If you want to find more of his work you can find him here.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance

What looks like an extensive amount of time spent on historical accuracy I’m intrigued to see how this game plays.

Vikings Second Half of Season 5

Second Half of Season Five

This show has already defied some series traditions by killing main characters and I’m excited to see what they do with the following episodes in the fall.  Who will die next? What epic lands and people will be explored?  And how extreme will the carnage get?

 Hakon’s Saga

Since Vikings has returned to the North for a civil war I think this series is a good addition to the genre.  Enjoy reading.

Total War: THREE KINGDOMS

This time period stands out in much of Chinese lore and history, and I’m intrigued to see it fleshed out by Sega and Creative Assembly in the Fall.
