Hi fellow Dwarfies! Here is the army I am taking to a tournament soon. Tried to put a cool story unit-filler into each unit. 

 

ARMY

 

They all arrive (at the tournament ;) ) in this longboat:

These are the "Old Boys" - the eldest and toughest dwarfs. They have the honour of carrying the ancient relic statue into battle (which gives them stubborn....er....the banner of stoicism)

These are the 95th Rifles - each man a crack-shot!

Here is the Experimental Steam Contraption:

And the cannons, Big Bertha:

And Little John, manned by 3 human refugees who have sworn allegiance to Flint for saving their village:

And Flint's Royal Guard - each one a relative of his with Royal Blood. They take the special brew into battle, carried by the army mascot - a nice fat pig:

And The Slayers. They found this Blind Troll when it was young and it now thinks it is actually a Dwarf! It fights with them:

And finally, Alebelly's Rangers who always scout ahead:

So that is it! First time i've had a fully painted army before. Having the deadline for the tournament really helps!

Love the unit fillers.  I really need to make some cool ones like that for my army.

Thanks guys! Oridur, the Cannon is a pencil sharpener that I found in a charity shop - I think it was originally from The British Museum, as a souvenir. Then I put it on a bit of cardboard. 

 

In other words, I have no idea  :pirate:

Brilliant...I have a few cannon key-rings and stuff that I will one day get round to using!
