I’ve had a bunch of dwarves undercoated for around three Warhammer army books. This is no great loss as I’ve never played a game of Warhammer Fantasy anyway. A longish story that-why I have a fantasy army but don’t play fantasy-but I going to leave that to another post. Today is about painting.
In some of the time I saved by not playing fantasy, I started painting the dwarves.
Here is the first unit, some longbeards close to finished but before basing:
The gossip of longbeards being all grumpy appears a tad malicious to me. These blokes look like a bunch of fun lovin’ hipsters with big beards and craft beer to go.
The gamers of the Old World.
There are a couple of heroes to go with them.
As you may guess, I don’t know much about what they do but I guess they stand around and hit stuff that comes near!
And here is the White Dwarf himself. I plan to use him as a slayer, hence the red hair.
I’m working on a standard too, but this isn’t quite finished yet. I want it to have a bit of height to help make the unit a centre piece for the army.
Next will be a crossbow unit so I will be able to split the large longbeard unit into two (proxy) warrior units and be ready for a really small game. No, White Dwarf-Dude, that is not meant to be funny. Please put the axe down, you’ll do someone a mischief!
How about a nice Mountain Goat beer?
