Hello all! There didn't seem to be a place for introductions so I thought I would introduce myself here, with photos of some of my dwarfs. I've been collecting dwarfs since the very end of third edition, where I ordered a special from the back of White Dwarf. That would form the basis of my first dwarf army. My second dwarf army army was based around the original multi-part plastics. Both of those armies are not pretty, although I am slowly stripping my first army for repainting. I've actually been lurking at the Brewery for a long, long time. Since back when non-members were allowed to use the Player's Society forums where Bugman also posted. Anyways, here are some photos of my third dwarf army:

 

 


 


 


 

And just for fun, here is a sneak peak at a unit of converted Hammerers I'm almost done with:

Enjoy!

Very nice! and welcome to the Brewery. This army looks great; would love to see more. LOVE that 1st unit with the Lord on the rock in particular. No more lurking; gotta post again soon.

Wow, there are some very nice bits of paintowrk in there, the blending on the Runesmith's weaponry being a very noticable piece of high-quality paintwork, I'm impressed.

Great first post!!

 

I must admit I really don't feel much love for the new plastics but you've made them look good, very nice metallics and the blonde beards on the Longbeards looks top notch. Nice to see some old thunderers there to.

Thanks for sharing.

I love the color combo + snow base, they absolutely look like they are in a colder environment in the mountains.

Thanks everyone for your kind words!

 

@Bayard I felt the same way when they were first released, but they've grown on me. The HW/S combo is really nice to paint too. I do wish their faces were a bit more “rotund,” but otherwise I'm quite happy with them now.


@rednorseman Ha! Yea, although I don't get any time to actually game anymore so I'll probably mostly be around the painting area and the marketplace. Speaking of which, S.O.F., if you read this, check your PM inbox ;)

 

@Darkblade Thanks, the mettallics are my attempts at using Joseph Wiltshere's method, which mixes black and/or codex grey into each step of the painting process. It's very time consuming unfortunately, but its to late to switch now!


@thenick18 That is what I was going for. Kind of my idea is that these are the dwarfs stuck in Karak-Eight-Peaks. Stuck in a deep mountain environment without lots of extravagances like expensive dyes and such. Except for the odd adventurer or two who have come to the hold in search of riches. I'm even working on a night goblin army to accompany it, led by the original Snarsnik model.

Very nice units. Quite taken with the hero in the first pick. And as already mentioned quite like the blonde beards on the Longbeards, how did you achieve that?

I did the longbeards a couple of years ago, so I don't remember what exactly I used in the third step, but I painted them bleached bone, layered white on top making sure to try to hit the top of the stands, then I applied several glazes of something (maybe bubonic brown?) to the deepest recesses of the braids, and then touched up the white.

I really like them. The warriors in particular look outstanding!

Any fluff concerning your army?
