I've just bought a unit of Scibor Dwarves because I really love the aesthetic of them: grim and stern looking, but not too heavily armoured and unhelmeted heads so you can really see the disapproval in their faces. The minis arrived today and look great.

 

Problem is all the painted examples I can find show them with really over-the-top golden armour. Has anyone painted any Scibor dwarfs before? Anyone got any pics with  slightly less cartoonish paintjob? Especially interested in  the shields These are the minis:dwarves_troll_hunters_02.jpg

Its not a Dwarf, but I've painted a Celtic Lord on Bear several years ago. They have similar armour and bears as Scibor's Dwarfs :)

They look great, a really stout shield-wall!
I was gonna say keep a muted, earthy palette of grey/brown/tan and only use an iron colour for the metalwork, but that green & brass does look ideal.
I prefer my dwarfs to be quite ‘low fantasy’; wooden shields and workmen’s clothes; gold should be kept safely in the vault, not paraded around all over your weapons and armour like some ufdi showoff! :-)

Edit: I’ve just noticed they don’t have their axes, are you doing a weapon swap or adding them later?

Yeah, axes will be added last, as i thought they'd be difficult to paint but yes, also they won't be the original ones. How the hell would a dwarf lift one of those?!

I like Scibor minis as well.  I have a all female Dwarf unit that is somewhere in gallery posts as well as a lord on a bear.

 

Well done....
