So, hello everyone! Just starting dwarfs, basically the new models in the range look awesome and I couldn't resist any longer.
Which kind of brings me to my problem, I really like the new longbeards/hammerers and ironbreakers/drakes, but the dwarf warriors and thunderers/quarrellers... well, they're not bad, but they almost don't look like part of the same army. So, I was thinking of trying to convert some thunderers/quarrellers from longbeards. Thoughts so far:
(1) Build longbeards and glue missile weapons to thier backs to make missile troops (especially as quarrellers may have great weapons anyway, and they have heavy armour now) but that's not exactly cheap.
(2) Using the longbeard heads and shoulder pads on normal dwarfs to make them look a bit more armoured and part of the same force, but I'm not sure how well that'll turn out.
(3) I'm out of ideas.
So, basically, I wondered if anyone else has tried this sort of thing, and has any advice as to what works and what doesn't. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
(Apologies if this has been addressed before, I tried searching the forums but didn't spot anything, or I just wasn't using the right runes in the search box.)
