Showcase: Dwarf Warriors by FruitBear

Posted on August 15th, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

Hello everyone! Whilst thinking back to the models that I’ve painted in the past, I thought I’d do a throw back post of the first models I painted back in 2006 when I first started the hobby. These Dwarf Warriors came from the Battle for Skull Pass starter. Back then no one taught me to paint so I had to rely on the White Dwarf masterclasses a lot! In saying that I’m glad they are coming back in Next Months White Dwarf!!
