Dwarf Army Showcase (Part 10) - Dwarf Wizards!

Yes - part 10 and the Dwarf Wizards!

I have collected a few dwarf and gnome wizards for fantasy and dungeoncrawl gaming (e.g. Warhammer Quest), and they are gathered here.

Back in the olden days of 1st - 3rd Edition Warhammer, the good old dwarfs had use of their own wizards and those of their close cousins, the gnomes. Dwarfs were a bit poor in general on the magical front, but gnomes were great, and were paricularly good as illusionists and at elemental spells.

The Gnome Wizard above is my absolute favourite, but all of them have their own charm.

Citadel made a good few dwarf wizards over the years - the red and blue catalogues showed several models, and Bob Olley made one for the Iron Claw Dwarfs range (see top picture). There were a couple of preslotta wizards (in the King's Court set and also the C Series). The Gnomes range also featured some wizards (all 3 shown in this article), and th 80s Tom Bombadil figure makes a great dwarf wizard.

Do you have them all? I know I still have some collecting to do!
