Well I've been a fan of dwarves/dwarphs ever since my brother got a couple of blisters back in the early 90´s. I still remember visiting the hobby store "Spel & Sånt" in Stockholm, Sweden (sadly, now closed now like most good stores here.)
Some years ago I read about what type of "miniature person" you were by trying to divide your percentage between Gaming/Collecting/Painting. My numbers started out around 20/70/10 and I'm now trying to tip the scale towards something like 30/10/60 as I now own figures that will take me years to paint.
My dwarf hold is positioned somewhere in worldsedge mountains bordering to Averland, (since my empire allies are painted in their colours). The colours of my hold are fairly uncontroversial dark red and a light gray blue tone, "borrowed" from the Kislev army.
Well enough with the rambling and on to the pictures!
My first character. Think he should have some flesh tones on the arms but made it a sweater.
I think this model might not get airborne if you apply the laws of physics, but it looks better than the new model.
Trusty Crossbowdwarfs. got 20 of these paited ad 20 more to do.
Thunderers even more stunning models than the quarellers in my opinion, love these figures! got 20 painted and 30 more to do.
My first 10 Hammerers, got 10 more, might need another few. Unfinished base, will take care of that.
Slayers, these five took way too much time, I'd like to add some tatoos aswell. A full unit of 30 would be awesome, might be a later project.
Well he ain't a dwarf, but as close as any manling might come to be considered of the right stuff so to speak, Felix Jaeger. Got a couple of Gothrekses in my collection so painting him shold be on the schedule.
Will post more pictures later.
It became much later...
My first 20 thunderers, I'd like to add shields on them but didnt drill them and GSed magnets in before I painted them and glueing them on isn't what I'd like. Got a standardbearer with pistol aswell, he's just got 3 layers of someone elses paint on him. Taking pictures in broad daylight is really revealing since I never paint them in that light. Ouch, you see each brushstroke
