I have collected a few dwarf and gnome wizards for fantasy and dungeoncrawl gaming (e.g. Warhammer Quest), and they are gathered here.
|Heresy! - Dwarf Wizards!|
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.
|Gnome Wizard (C Series)|
The Gnome Wizard above is my absolute favourite, but all of them have their own charm.
|Another Gnome Illusionist|
|Dwarf Wizard on Pony - Actually Tom Bombadil from the 80s LOTR range|
|Marauder Dwarf Wizards|
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.
