I will be posting photos of my oop dwarfs that I have painted in the late 90's.
I hope you will find these interesting as I have some nice oop models and some really nice ideas were implemented while building the army.
sorry for the picture quality.
First is my flagship conversion. This was done after the chief of asterix (fat guy on shield). At that time nobody else had this miniature made. I used two throne bearers and a round base as the shield. I was really proud about my idea but 2 years later many similar conversions were seen around and later on GW issued their model.
The king is accompanied by his guards with two handed hammers, making a brute unite of 10 tough dwarfs.
The guards are converted plastic chaos dwarf models. tall hats were flatted down, teeth removed and axes replaced with hammers from the regiments of renown kit
the reason the dwarfs have orange beards is because I was thinking of their story as following. these 10 great dwarfs used to be really good slayers. but a good slayer is a failed slayer (did not achieve honorable death) and therefore these guys have decided to go back and support their slayer king in a normal dwarf way.
more to come soon
