A Germanic tradition of cursing your enemies

That is great – would make a good camp scene for DBA type games. Taunt the enemy!

Some stuff I didn't know and a nice little model – well worth clicking your link, Paul … thanks for posting

Love it, and great timing as I was just contemplating what this would look like in a minis game.

Very cool. A nice model, and I learned something interesting today. Thanks!

Very cool nithing stick!
We played a PigWars game using the Foundry horsehead on a stick as our nithing stick. The mother-in-law of the leader on one side was a witch, who put up a nithing stick to curse the other side. The other side suffered a minus one to their combat card draws until hey were able to cast down the nithing stick or kill the witch. It provided motivation for them to attack to get the curse removed as quickly as possible.

Was it truly magic, like a spell in D&D or just psychological?

@Grelber. Psychological. Seems to work though. Some guy used one against his neighbour (2006) and got the result he wanted.
