The last meaningful work I did on my Warmaster Dwarves was seven years ago (nearly to the day). I’d been humming and hawing about a Warmaster army for awhile now, and settled on the Dwarves when I got back from Scotland a few weeks ago. Since then I’ve finished the silver and gold, and laid down the first layer for the wood. I have no idea if I’ll get these to a usable state before Fall In! in November, but I’m trying.13/10/2019 at 07:41 #124360Wouter WolputParticipant
You still seem to have quite a bit of work ahead of you ;).
The models are gorgeous though and your style of painting seems to fit them really well. Marvelous work already on the Runesmith and his anvil.14/10/2019 at 18:36 #124457CerdicParticipant
I know nothing about the fantasy side of wargaming. Is ‘smidgen’ the correct collective noun for dwarves?21/10/2019 at 14:25 #124875
Sounds legit to me, Cerdic.
The wood and white have now been finished up and I started in on the blue on the dwarves. This is going to be a long one, I think. There’s a lot of small areas that I’ll need to be careful on. After that it’s leathers, flesh and hair. Fourish weeks left before Fall In, still hoping to make it.24/10/2019 at 14:33 #125069
I’m gaming tonight so I won’t get getting any further on these guys this week. The blue shade and base color are down, it needs 1-2 highlights next and I made hit it with a wash to see if I like it better that way. Leathers, flesh, hair and basing to go!01/11/2019 at 11:52 #125646
I put the final two highlights on the blue this past week, managed to get the bases and boots based coated, and now I’m working through all the leather belts, straps and satchels on the dwarves.
I was also curious last night and took one figure to completion. I didn’t use a wash on the skin, I’m not sure if that’s the way to go yet. You can also see the leather on this guy too, not sure if it needs one more highlight or not. Thoughts?01/11/2019 at 13:09 #125655Deleted UserMember
I’m jealous. I should have bought them up while they were still in production, they’re worth their weight in gold now.08/11/2019 at 16:01 #126173
These are actually the second dwarves I owned. The first were from two army boxes that I think I paid $20 for? After I sold them I found a good deal from a local comic store that was looking to unload them. I think the army ended up costing me less than $100 when it was all said and done.
I finished the leather on the dwarves this week, man did that suck. There’s just a bunch of tiny leather details everywhere. Anyway, the base-coat for the flesh is down now so it’s that and the hair, plus decals and basing.
It’s unlikely that I’ll get to these before Fall In! but they’re playable at least.08/11/2019 at 20:33 #126193Wouter WolputParticipant
You’re really putting your heart and soul in these aren’t you?
I’m used to painting 15mm, but the level of detail you manage on these tiny sculpts, and at such a high volume at the same time, completely baffles me.22/11/2019 at 15:24 #126951
Thanks man, I’d like to finish the basing on the Dwarves as well as their artillery before the end of the year but I’m burnt out on them for now. This is what I managed to get done last week before Fall In! I finished the skin and hair on the dwarves, and got them on bases along with the ballast. The decals didn’t end up working out, they printed poorly and I found myself touching them up far too much. I scrapped the idea and painted simple patterns on the shields to differentiate the Warriors. I’ll got back and match the shield pattens on the banners as well.
The general still is a work-in-progress, I’m converting him up along with an unreleased musician. I did manage to get some good decal prints for him and the Anvil, they’ll be the only two in the army.
