I’ve been an active viewer of these forums for a bit now and I thought it was about time I contribute.
I’ve been working on a throng from Karag Dum for a bit now and I thought it would be a good time to post some pictures. I actually hadn’t finalized any of the dwarfs I’ve been working on so far, so this post gave me the motivation to do the final steps on a couple of them. My final steps include a final wash, highlight and base.
In my Karag Dum lore, it is a keep divided. With the current King, Thangrim Firebeard’s clan taking the thone from the previous King’s clan in some ancient past. Some clans still show their support of the previous king by keeping his colors (Red and Sky Blue with Bretonnian inspired head-gear) as part of their clan colors while the rest of the clans have adopted the Firebeard Clan’s colors (Purple and Blue with Empire inspired head-gear). I did this because I didn’t want to stick to just one color theme for the entire throng and the Empire and Bretonnian head-gear because I can’t help but mod anything and everything.
Since Karag Dum is in the north of the World Edge mountains, close to the Chaos Wastes, I decided to base them with a dark purple stone to show that they live in a land that is not untouched by the changing power of chaos.
These first four Dwarfs are part of my general warrior unit. The unit will have Shields, Hand Axes and Spears. I know there are no rules for spears currently and that no dwarf would ever be caught in battle with just a spear so I made sure to add axes. I’m thinking that this might be the only unit that has dwarfs representing both color themes in it.
I hope you enjoy as much as I’ve enjoyed looking at all of your throngs.
