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.

The Age of Sigmar Cometh!

So I guess it has been nearly a year since my last post. Again life just got in the way for some time, but hopefully I can bring back some action to this blog.

Today I met up with Dr. The Viking from Dr. The Viking's Miniature Games Hell. Apparently we got sucked into the Games Workshop vortex once again and now we are playing Age of Sigmar (YIKES!).

Dr. The Viking has been speedpainting a Chaos Horde (You can go to his blog to see the progress) and I have dug up my Oldhammer Dwarfs. 

I never got around to finish an actual Warhammer army and when we gamed Dragon Rampant I never managed to finsh an army for that either, so my army still consist of a lot of unfinished models among the few I have finished so far.

There is really not much more to say. We are just having some fun with miniatures.

Some unfinished Heartbreaker Dwarfs.

Grombrindal.

Khorne Warriors approaching.

A bit of cavalry.

The small and fat red line.

More action.

Age of Sigmar seems to be pretty easy on the rules side, while still having enough meat on the bones to give each unit their own flavour. So far I like it.

Orktober 2016 Part II


So I managed to finish my Orks for the 2016 orktober Fest. I painted 6 new Space Orks and took some photos of them mixed with my already painted ones. This brings me to a total of 21 painted Orks.

The complete gang!

Nobs in power armour.

Group with command and banner.

Group with Nob.

Group with Nob carrying a plasma pistol and chainsword.

The colours came out a bit strange on some of the photos, but I hope you can still make out what is what on the pics.
