First some background
So I got my first box of dwarf warriors awhile ago now and I was pretty underwhelmed, the cartoony art style doesn't really tickle my pickle and I only got them for Mordheim really as the longbeards and IBs are too expensive for me.
In comes bunker games! Anyone in Australia can tell you that GW prices here are pretty high, premium product premium price but I'm poor. Whilst I'm an advocate for the company and I think we all owe them a lot... I'm a student and I can hardly afford to shell out $70 aud for a box of Longbeards so I had to look for an alternate strategy, I found bunker games recently and they had a big 30% off their already discounted prices when AOS came out and I had to get something, so I ordered some longbeards and a rune priest for about $60 in total and got free shipping because I live in Vic! I wouldn't buy from them usually because I like my GW staff member and I want the store to stay open, the 10% is hardly worth waiting two weeks for my product to arrive and to trad the invaluable resource at the store, but when they have sales hot damn it's worth a buy!
Side note: I nearly cried when I saw they had the box set for $130 when I paid the full $200
So cheap, it did take ages to arrive though but I had school stuff to do anyway
I can't be bothered waiting for the new dwarf models to come out, the heavily armored current models I think look like they will tie in well with the stormcasts I got from the box-set (me and me friend got one and swapped each other the chaos and Stormcast models so I have 2 of all the Sigmarines) but I wanted them to look a bit more... Age of Sigmary.
So far not much eye candy and probably no where near enough to bother reading that splur but more will come!
Here's my converted thane, I uses the axe head from the Longbeard champion and the thunder things from my spare lord Celestants head, the little metal Mohawk looking thing is cut from one of the standard tops (not sure which kit) sorry for the not so high res picture my xperia camera is pretty good but its been on the frits lately.
I think the small addition makes him fit in that little bit more
The top of his oath-stone, pretty mediocre but it'll do for now
Now for the Hammerer! Love the helmet-less face for the champion but I always preferred a more dynamic pose, this is by no means super active but Its better than the original I think, grean stuffing that beard gap was literally the worst thing I've ever done and It came out less than how I imagined.
I'm still strapped for a color scheme, I don't know if I should go gold for the main color to tie in with the Stormcasts of If I should go another color.
As usual CC welcome
