PostSubject: Dwarf band : The Dümhammers   Wed 9 Sep 2015 - 6:47

Hi there!

So here we go, my first band will be the Dwarves, as they are my all time favourite, no matter what. I'll make a topic about the band fluff and composition latter, first the figs!

I love making conversions, and I've tried to make as much as I can. I've used a lot of different dwarven parts, from the old plastic kit and the new, and used pieces from empire mercenaries as well. I tried my hand at sculpting, but apart from backpacks and small pouches, as well as fur, and occasional arm and shorten beards, I wasn't too adventurous.

There is 15 henchmen, for the simple reason that I want flexibility as the band will develop, so I made 5 beardlings, 5 marksmen and 5 warriors. I have made a conversion for my band leader, Korgan, with lots of pieces from various figs. He wield a gromrill hammer as a starting weapon, which can sound odd game wise, but it's the band symbol and fluff centric element. Show some pics already !


Korgan himself, only finished fig of the band.


The heroes, I converted the last slayer to carry tow hammers. The engineer has a small boar on his helmet because I'd like to make him a tamer, and use tamed boars as war hounds. You cant see it but the classic slayer has a mushroom on his belt, he will use them as often as possible (and eventually become stupid...).


The beardlings. You will notice considerable shorten beards. As well as fully removable arms, which are magnetized. The whole band gear is magnetized actually! Fully customizable.


The warriors. They are mainly made out of the most recent kit. Their arms are also removable, you can see here is a variety of possible equipment.


My shooters. They can be equipped with crossbows or rifles, depending on my mood (and the band's purse!). I haven't represented their hand to hand weapon, do you consider it as really important?


And finally a view of all the current gear, all hand to hand weapons can be swapped from every figs. You might have noticed that the left arms have some greentuf on the fist, it's because the fist is magnetized as well! Every left arm can receive a shield. Shields are varied so the beardling really look like loners, buying what they can with what they have, warriors on the other hand will look more "pro" with less clutter on their backs.

That's all for now! My modelling is nearly over, I'll go to the painting phase soon. Comments, question or criticism welcome!

LOOKIN' GOOD! That is a SPLENDID array of Vertically Challenged Warriors; the potential for UBERCOOL is there. Your Green Stuff work is much more IMPRESSIVE than you would have us believe; the back packs, pouches, & bags are particularly nice & a source of envy for moi. AND you have a flair for colors. GREAT WORK!   thumbsup

Looking forward to more of these, Beardlings are looking particularly nice!

Thanks a lot! I'm painting the Mordheim slayer, I'm quite happy with the result so far, I tried to give some volume to the muscles and, I'm not going to win a golden demon, but for tabletop it will be good enough. Photos soon!

Finally finished (97%) the slayer! There's still a few thing to address that will be quite obvious, but I'll move on and go back to it later. I'm really happy with the overall look, the feeling from a tabletop distance. Not Golden Demon material, but quite happy. Note the only addition to this piece : the madcap shrooms!



Now, to the engineer!

The Little Psycho looks OUTSTANDING, far better than the vast majority of gaming miniatures. Your brushwork, colors, & base are BEAUTIFUL. VERY WELL DONE!   thumbsup

I always notice mushrooms...VERY COOL detail.   What a Face

Thanks! that's my first painting a while, but I tried some techniques and was happy about the result. Probably my best piece so far, but let's hope not as good as the next one!
