So...I've had a dwarf army sitting in my cupboard for awhile and decided to get it out and paint it up for 8th ed...here's the first unit of warriors...only 20 in this picture though I'll be bumping it up to 25. I'll probably be updating more often on my website
. But thought I'd put it here as well to help encourage me to get er done...

Very, very nice!
The freehand work on the banner is great as is the blue highlights.
Thanks for sharing,

I demand you pump out some more units for my amusement in the next ten minutes!
Seriously: awesome! The modelling is cool and the blue highlights rock. great banner too.

Hey here's one of my characters...its the Avatars of War Dwarf hero...and must I say it is a rockin miniature
Aug 20 2010, 02:22 PM
Awesome. Love the colour scheme as well - it just works.
Gem on the axe is sweet too.

Alrighty then...so now we got some of the thunderers assembled. You'll notice I've done them with a banner. This isn't a mistake as I plan to run the unit 20 strong and if need be get them reformed into a rank and file unit. Some people might say this is a waste...and I may agree if they don't preform like i want them to...Either way it gives me an excuse to practice my freehand skillz on the banner.

Looking good mate!
Loving the warriors.

Hey I've been painting the thunderers but just wanted to give you a look at the banner bearer for the thunderers unit.
Aug 25 2010, 05:29 PM
Very nice freehand work and highlighting on the banner.
I also like the GS paving on the base.

Just by the by does anyone know of any good alternatives for hammerers? I'm planning on using the surplus of miners I have atm to fill the gap...but would like models with actual hammers eventually.

Try this tutorial from Bugmans Brewery. Although the second method is a lot more work, the results are worth it.

Here's a shot of the finished thunderers!...I'm happy with how they turned out. I've been practicing my speed painting and can get out roughly 10 of these bad boys in about 3-4hrs not including banner and champion.

I've started another dwarf lord...practicing NMM...check it out here http://www.ministryofpaint.net/painting-blog.php

What's the secret to your speed painting?
Aug 31 2010, 01:57 PM
Ummm my secret? Knowing what colour scheme I'm doing...what paints I'm going to use and having them handy and then basically just attacking the project...I will paint furiously for an hour at a time take a break and then go at it again...I will say that you need to have your basic highlighting/shading techniques down and have good brush skills...that way your hand knows what its doing when you go to paint a robe or armor etc etc...and you don't have to think about it a whole lot...
does that help any? if you want more just PM and I'll see what I can do to help you out.

Here's the dwarf lord I've been painting...not finished yet...still got some bits to finish but thought I'd give you a pic...no metallic paint was used in the painting of this miniature...
Aug 31 2010, 02:38 PM
that lord is fantastic, nmm looks great.
Aug 31 2010, 03:06 PM
would you believe it was my first attempt? The other lord I was trying to make the axes look like stone...
Aug 31 2010, 04:11 PM
not a chance, are you on the heelanhammer forums? russ veal has a similiar dwarf lord he's done in nmm.
Aug 31 2010, 07:58 PM
The dwarfs are looking fantastic dude, loving the avatars lord.
Keep up the awesome work, will hopefully see these at orktoberfest?

Thats such a rad model, I love how the moustache just hangs over his arm. The paint job does is stellar, loving the way you have done the blue on the axe straps.
This army is going to look the shiz, keep up the effort!
