Marauder Quarrelers

Next up I have finished a unit of Marauder Quarrelers for my Iron Hill Dwarfs. This boost my shooting a lot. Eventually I probably need to add ten more figures though. Getting a proper unit leader, banner and instrument will already add the first 3 models.

Front rank.

Second rank.

Besides painting Dwarf models I have also been building a bit of terrain on the side. Some of it can be seen in the back of some of my earlier posts. But since I just finished a Watchtower I thought I would showcase the buildings on their own too.

A Dwarf Brewery.

Scale with Dwarf.

The "Brewery" looks pretty anonymous so far, but I kind of kept it that way, so it could work out as other things too. I will eventually add a bit more small terrain stuff like wagon wheels, shovels, small clutter, to make it come more alive.

Small town house.


The watchtower.

Door shot.

The tower top.

My terrain is not the best in the world, but I try to learn and improve as I go along. My houses are build out of cardboard, Popsicle sticks and other free and cheap things I can get my hands on. I really try to keep the budget as low as possible on the terrain front.

But then again I really don't mind my terrain is looking like wargaming terrain and not small scale models. It has an old-school charm of its own.

Medieval Squats Part II

A bit of a progress in my current quest to paint an Oldhammer themed Dwarf army for Age of Sigmar.

A bunch of my characters.

A unit of Pike Dwarfs.

2nd row.

Gamingwise I play the Pike Dwarfs as having 2 handed great weapons (or whatever it is called) and no shields. This is apparently a not so good choice for the Dwarf Warriors, but at least the unit looks good.

Artillery piece.

Combined forces.

I choose to play the army as Dispossessed and use their traits, even though some of my troops are considered allies, according to the rules. All the Dwarf units are just considered Dispossessed and thus benefit from the trade, while the Giant is treated as an ally and gets no bonus. 

So far, so good... Coming up next is Quarellers and some Dark Dwarf Warriors.

Tom Meier Cloud Giant

I always had a soft spot for the old Ral Partha Tom Meier sculpts and especially this Cloud Giant has been on my want list for quite some time.

So far I have had an old Barbarian Giant, from Grenadier, as an ally for my Dwarfs, but even I could see he was very small for a Giant in the Warhammer universe. So I begun searching for the Cloud Giant and I found one, on Ebay, at a price I could accept.

I painted him right away and I must say he was a joy to paint. Very characterful and detailed sculpt, while still having that primitive and old school charm.


Ready for battle!



  


I'm really happy about how he turned out and I look forward to field him in a game one day. I also tried to do a little extra about the base and that turned out to be a success too.
