Default Hammer49 My Dwarf army & any WH side projects

Hi guys & Gals. This will be alog of my WH projects. Im a big fan of dwarfs and its about time I had an army fully painted for them.
Im a big fan of the dwarf character models. Heres a couple I worked on recently. I still need to finish the base as its abit boring at the moment.



A finished unit of GW armed Dwarf warriors.


Beginnngs of a crossbow unit.


I am considering changing the red on the dwarf crossbowmen and warriors to a darker green, as they have been commented on as being "christmas dwarfs".

Just to add some variety some minotaurs that I have painted for my warriors of chaos army to represent ogres. I prefer these to the chaos orgres, and my conversion skills arent the best.


Comments welcomed as I am also hoping to improve my limited painting skills!

Personally I like the green, but I can see how some might lable them Santa's helpers. That being said, if you like them don't change them just because someone is playing some mindgame pregame metagaming hijinks on you and making you feel like your dwarves "are just a bunch of weak toy makers".

Be contrary enough to say right back, "So how do you want to be wrapped, Mr. Naughty? These are Dwarves with an Attitude and you just got written into the book of Grudges. "

Anyway, maybe shading the brightness of both the green and the red down might forestall the comments if you don't like them.

BTW, have you checked out the Painting Challenge? Follow this link. My son is painting up an army of Dwarves in his Project Log and I am painting up a Dark Elf Army on my Project Log.It may not be too late to join...

For the Greater Good......

Are the minotaurs finished or still wip? The lighting of the pic makes it very hard to tell. Nice work on the dwarfs however.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Dwarfs are looking pretty good mate. There are some places where there is some paint spill, especially around the bottom where the red meets the tan undercoat that need to get cleaned up.

I also think that you would get some more pop out of the models with cloaks if they were a different color from the shirt cloth color.

Other than that some good looking stuff man. Keep up the good work.

The minotaurs are not yet finished, just need a few details added and the base cleaned up.

Midge913 had noticed the overflow on the bottom after I posted the pic. Its surprising what you miss until you take a pic. I will clean this up as I have some nice new brushes which will make it alot easier.

I will post some more pics shortly. Currently working on some Miners & ironbreakers, though I keep getting distracted by my Bloodangels & iron warriors.

Holy crap, did the dwarf just get a new release, this is the 4th dwarf project log running now? They do look good, will be keeping an eye on these as well. Hell i might just start painting a damn dwarf army!

Oh yeah the camera is the best tool when looking to see whats wrong with a model. Set to macro and take a few pics and look. You will see EVERYTHING that is wrong with it.

I couldn't agree with this statment more. It is amazing what the camera will see that you don't...... I have taken pictures of stuff that I though was pretty much finished only to jump in shock at the photo that looks like a just threw paint at the model hoping it will look good.

djinn I think you have more than enough to be getting on with...... But more Stunties is always good

Recently while looking through my model collection for something I came across the first model I ever painted. I dont think Ive improved much since.


This is a ironbreakers unit that is still very wip that im currently working on. I am also currently painting 20 miners and around 60 GW carrying warriors.


This is a Daemon prince that I finished recently for my warriors of chaos army.


This is my teclis model I painted a few years that I have recently been repairing due to a nose dive of a table.
