Dwarves


Dwarf Leather Daddies

I put the final two highlights on the blue this past week, managed to get the bases and boots based coated, and now I'm working through all the leather belts, straps and satchels on the dwarves. I was also curious last night and took one figure to completion. I didn't use a wash on the skin, I'm not sure if that's the way to go yet. You can also see the leather on this guy too, not sure if it needs one more highlight or not. Thoughts?

Age of Magic: Dwarves v Undead

I met up with Peter tonight and took on his Underworld force with my Great Kingdoms Dwarves.  I was leery about playing the Underworld army after reading comments about them online and they certainly proved to be as deadly as their reputation. We played the Clash of Warlords scenario using deployment C. With the way the... Continue Reading →

Quick review: TTCombat Halfling cavalry

In order to expand my Age of Magic/ Warlord of Erewhon forces I picked up some of the TTCombat Halfling cavalry models that are being sold via Warlord Games. Specifically I picked up the Halfling Goat Rider with Spears and Halfling Mounted Command. They are fun looking models and are cast in resin which is... Continue Reading →

Dwarves: The Natural Choice for an Army Painting Sprint

The last meaningful work I did on my Warmaster Dwarves was seven years ago (nearly to the day). I'd been humming and hawing about a Warmaster army for awhile now, and settled on the Dwarves when I got back from Scotland a few weeks ago. Since then I've finished the silver and gold, and laid down the first layer for the wood. I have no idea if I'll get these to a usable state before Fall In! in November, but I'm trying.

An Unusual Assortment of Odd and Sundry Items

I've been painting. Some of it's been further experiments with Contrast® paints.So... eight and a half years ago I bought a pile of these dirt cheap 1/35 scale Maschinen Krieger (Ma.K) models... and haven't really done anything with them. Through long and convoluted series of circumstances and thoughts and ideas, I got to working n a few of them this last week.My general idea was that these could be part of a Rogue Trader's personal retinue. The equipment might be of Xenos origin - having been out beyond the imperium for so many years (decades... CENTURIES...!?) they've taken on equipment of xenos manufacture or design - to replace equipment that was lost or broke beyond repair along their journey. Either that or possibly a unit of mostly human mercenaries working in the employ of the T'au...?I did try converting a few to incorporate actual 40k weapons... but they mostly ended up looking goofy. The most I've left with their original weaponry and just repainting and adding pilots to the ones that are opened up

Assorted Stuff

An odd and unusual assortment of stuff rolling off the workbench this week...Not all THAT odd and unusual: A couple of Necromunda figures - a Van Saar Juve and an Escher Ganger.The Van Saar Juve was a test figure to see if I liked the purple body suit for them. I do. I didn't want to do th standard green as my Cawdor gangers are all in Green. I was planning to do the Orlocks in mostly blue. The Redemptionists are Red. Escher are multi-coloured and Selaqure are black. Yellow and Orange are just a pain in the ass to paint.... so... purple...Speaking of Purple... an assortment of crates and drums in purple... just for a bit of variety.A couple of Hired Guns/Bounty Hunters for Necromunda. The guy with the plasma gun will have to be a Bounty Hunter as Hive Scum can only have items that are Rare (7) or lower. The guy with the twin bolt pistols COULD be Hive Scum... but he just looks a little too bad ass... so I guess they'll both be Bounty Hunters!Still 40K, but not necessarily for Necromunda... an old Psyker figur

Dragon Rampant Game

Mr Steinberg and I had another Dragon Rampant game recently, once again it was his chaotic snail and slug slime horde against the proud and less slimy Dwarves of Tir-Na-Bor. These two forces are getting to know each other quite well, we have been fielding well used army lists for a few games now. These Elite Thermo Warriors are one of the best combat units but they are better when attacking rather than defending. The cavalry give some much needed speed, very useful for grabbing objectives. We had quite a few skirmishes where units on both sides were getting worn down as casualties mounted. The dwarves have finally finished building their Clockwork Dragon (because these Dwarves don’t like real Dragons much) and it fits the brass and metal theme for the Tir-Na-Bor army. Mr Steinberg‘s Reaper Bones giant worms are pretty gruesome looking, here are three advancing on a blue gem objective. The Belicose Boors below are a favourite unit of mine, as long as they get to charge and not get charged! Th
