Default My Dwarf Throng- updated 5/25/12, Master Engineer Pics

In an effort to motivate myself I am starting a plog for my dwarfs. My dad and I play 40k frequently and recently he has gotten the bug to play fantasy, so I jumped in with both feet so to speak. Seeing that there is no equivalent to the dwarfs in 40k (at least not that we are allowed to talk about) I was immediately drawn to them. Stoic ranks of dwarven warriors, lots of artillery and their own special brand of magic items had me sold so I started buying and painting a couple of things. My goal is to have a huge core of warriors and longbeard, supported by a few special units, mainly Iron Breakers and Hammers, and as many artillery pieces as I can get on the table.

When I started painting I found that I really like red and grey together for the dwarves, so I stuck with that in the few models that I painted up with a smattering of blue, and lots of plain steel.

So far I have a gyrocopter and a cannon team done and I am currently working on a regiment of longbeards.





Gyro









Cannon and Cannon team from BfSP.

Anyhow, thank you for looking and as always C&C appreciated.

I will try and get some WIP photos up of my longbeards tonight or tomorrow.

Cheers,

Midge

Nice start, your stunties are looking good so far. There seem to be quite a few Dwarf players popping up at the moment, always nice to see more Fantasy logs too.

Default Longbeards WIP

So here are some shots of my longbeards. I have a mix of models from BfSP and regular warriors. Liking how they are turning out so far. Planning on doing a light grey/white cloak, and of course grey beards. I am also considering putting the masks on them as they did in the army book, but I am not sure if I will keep them. I will have to see what they look like when they are done.
Bases










Again thanks for looking and C&C welcome.

Hey guys! Just a brief update as to my progress so far. Got the upper torsos of the warriors from the warrior kit cleaned, base coated, and attached. Got all of the leather for the boots done, and got everybody attached to their bases. From here on out I am gonna be knocking out a single model at a time so that I can get all the details the way that I want them for each model. I am looking forward to painting some of the guys from the actual warrior kit, since up to this point I have been working pretty exclusively out of the BfSP box.



All ranked up



First longbeard done

Hoping to knock out a few more of these guys tomorrow night, thanks for following my progress and as always C&C welcome.

Cheers,

Midge

Yeah I know from personal experience how dispiriting it is to paint the Bfsp minis after seeing the better molds you get in the warrior box.

Keep it up!

Fortunately this is my last batch of them and they will all be done. I think that being interspersed with some of the regular warriors will help them look better on the table and I think it does make the regiment look more varied in appearance due to their stance. Thanks for the encouragement, and as I said I should have some more done tonight, and should have the regiment finished by the end of the weekend. Will post when they are all done.

Cheers,

midge

Yeah the few times I have had time to play a game or two, the high held weapons do add some much needed vertical presence to the battlefield. The beards do tend to melt in to the armor which makes it a pain to paint

Just a quick update.

I am slowly moving through these longbeards. I am spending most of my time working on prepping the rest of my models for the challenge so I am ready to go as soon as it starts. But I did want to throw these guys up. Almost a full rank



Cheers,

Midge
