Inspired by axiom´s great painting challenges I´m launching a project of my own mainly for Finnish oldhammerers. The theme will be Kalevala: Raiders of the lost Sampo warband. Kalevala is a work of epic poetry compiled from Karelian and Finnish oral folklore and mythology. Sampo on the other hand was a magical artifact in Kalevala that brought good fortune to its holder. Sampo was lost to sea and was believed to be destroyed but now rumours of it´s rediscovery has spread and adventurers from all over the Väinölä are gathering to recover it....

“Then a man arose from ocean,
From the waves a hero started;
Not the hugest of the hugest,
Nor the smallest of the smallest;
As a man´s thumb was his stature,
Lofty as the span of a woman.

Decked his head a helm of copper,
On his feet were boots of copper,
On his hands were copper gauntlets,
Gloves adorned his copper tracings;
Round his waist his belt was copper;
In his belt his axe was copper;
And the haft thereof was thumb-long,
And the blade thereof was nail-long.”

The tiny man from the ocean is the first model which has been completed for this challenge.
The tiny man next to a 28mm dwarf.
