PostSubject: Bertls Expedition für den jungen Zwerg   Tue 11 May 2010 - 10:55

Hi there!

Please allow me to introduce my dwarf treasure hunter warband.


Bertl's Expedition for the Young Dwarf

The leader Um-Berto Bertl - who can be easily recognised by his golden armour - is a rather greedy dwarf who wants to travel to mordheim in order to dig some wyrdstone shards for his personal pleasure. Unfortunately he isn't the most charismatic dwarf in his clan, and since other adult dwarfs try to avoid him, Bertl decided to recruit some younger Beardlings for his cause. "To get some blood on your beards, pals" he says.. He also convinced the Engineer Harri Blutgrätsche (Harri Razorblade-tackle), who has an alcohol and nicotine problem and owes Bertl a fair amout of gold, as well as 2 furious Slayers who are always looking for a glorious way to redeem themselves. Bertl doesn't really expect his warband to return unharmed, but alas, as long as the ones still standing carry bags full with wyrdstone, it's okay with him.


Ferdl, Um-Berto Bertl


Ruprecht, Beppo, Schorsch, Hulgrif "der Trollslayer" (he claims to be a trollslayer and not just an old dwarf who likes to go naked into battle..)


Woiferl, Murx, Ed


Murlocmalmer (Murloccrunsher), Hobbitbrecher (Hobbitbreaker)


Hias, Harri Blutgrätsche (Harri Razorblade-tackle)

Almost all dwarfs have at least one Neodym-Magnet somwhere in their body to carry the following equipment..

All items have a metal plate on the backside to make them stick to the magnet.
Harri Blutgrätsche has two different arms, one with a pistol and one with a hammer.
Ruprecht also has two arms, one with a sword ans the other holding a lantern.
And Bertl has two different heads - one with a helmet and one without.

The miniatures are mostly from Reaper. The Engineer is from Avatars of War, the slayers are from Tales of War, Hias is from Scibor Miniatures and bertl is from Dwarf Tales.
The Slayer with two Axes originally carried two Hammers, which is replaced with axes from a GW Trollslayer.
The Engineer had a gigantic two-handed axe which i replaced with a one-handed hammer.

BUT I have to admit that i didn't paint those models myself! I only selected the miniatures, drilled and glued the magnets, did some minor conversions (like swapping weapons) and put the small metal plates onto the weapon bits.
Props for the paintjobs go to Sigur from Warseer, a fellow austrian painterwho did this (in my eyes) wonderful work.
His WIP thread can be found here. There are also some other very nice commissions in there!


I hope you like Bertls Crew!

This is phenomenal! What a super painted warband you've got there.

I would almost start a dwarf warband myself. Awesome!

You make me sick...

...or seeing your minis then looking at mine makes me sick.

Fantastically done- I especially like the realistic effect you've achieved by using a muted colour scheme.

Excellent choice of models.
Great paintjob (so please buy a big barrel of beer for the lucky, talented painter, he deserves it).
I LOVE these dwarfs! You can be proud of this warband.

They're wonderful. The contrast between highlights and shadings is awesome, and the minis are so... elegant, if that can be said about dwarves. Superb!

Those are some wonderful models; coming from a long term Greenskin player that's some compliment :p

The painting is also fantastic and really gives the warband a sense of depth.

Great job Smile

This is the most originally painted dwarf warband I've ever seen. The models just kick so much ass already as they are, but you gave them life with that colour scheme.. really great stuff!

thanks for sharing.

Beautiful and characterful warband! You've chosen the miniatures perfectly, even that they're made by various manufacturers. I love the idea of magnetized weapons and equipment - great step to WYSIWYG!

Ironic: I've been following that painter's thread on warseer for over a year now. I've been watching the WIP of them with amazement, and he just posted a link back here. lol. Go figure.

Fantastic models and wonderful paint job.
