Dwarf Arny Showcase (Part 11) - Dwarf Characters

Now we're onto our final post - the Dwarf Characters.

Here is a mix of all the characters that haven't been previously featured in this series, along with possibly a couple that have.

These first guys are my main characters for games - a dwarf lord, some heroes, and a battle standard bearer.

I can pick and choose from these for most games. However I do have some more characters - an Avatars of War Dwarf King and converted Dwarf Queen shown below.

The Dwarf Queen is converted with steel toe-caps on her boots, a replacement axe-head, and a mohican to complete. I am really happy with the model, except for the fact that I want to shave the feet a little so that she sits better on her base, and to maybe add one or two extra details. If you're interested in getting hold of one, the model is from the Das Schwarze Auge (The Dark Eye) range, stocked by Ral Partha Europe.

There are also a few special characters knocking about, but these don't get used often.

And last of all, I thought I should share my favourite ever dwarf model. It is the Colin Dixon White Dwarf, released to celebrate the 200th Edition of White Dwarf magazine. One day soon I might revisit the model and just tweak the painting on the axe, as that was slightly rushed, and it really shows compared to the rest of the model. However, it is also one of the best paint jobs I have ever done, and was a real pleasure to paint.

That's all for now from the Dwarf Army Showcase. There are a lot more dwarves waiting to be painted and I hope you enjoyed the ride. I'm hoping to bring you more updates on the lead pile soon....
