    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.

    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.

    I know nothing about the fantasy side of wargaming. Is ‘smidgen’ the correct collective noun for dwarves?

    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.

    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!

    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?

    I’m jealous. I should have bought them up while they were still in production, they’re worth their weight in gold now.

    Tired is enough.

    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.

    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.
