Dwarves (Chris)
« on: December 15, 2009, 07:36:22 PM »
Recently inspired by Dragon Age Origins to pull out the warmaster armies and finish the unpainted lead!

Earlier in the month pulled out the box of warmaster minis and found:

character pack
two warrior packs
hammers
rangers
cannon
flame cannon

Two ebay auctions later, picked up three more warriors, two troll slayers and two thunders.

Considering my bias for the Roman Legionnaire approach to the Dwarves in Warmaster; ordered 4 more packs of warriors, one more thunder unit and two more ranger units... as well the BOFA box set.

Scrounging in the back of the closet, I found my man o war fleet which has three gyrocopters... [also took out 5 subs, 6 monitors, 2 ironclads and 2 dreadnoughts for priming...]

3000+ points of dwarves. [I plan on basing the rangers 4-6 a stand; and the thunders 6 to a stand. Just looks better to me, makes the rangers setting up ambushes more believable; and allows me to make 4 units from 3 packs].

Plenty of warriors for a 2k warrior focused list; cannons, thunders and slayers for some options.

----

Over the past three weeks I have painted up two warrior units, the hammers and one unit of trollslayers; general, runesmith and one hero.

Shocked at how easy the trollslayers were to paint up compared to the warriors - one beard color makes a huge difference. I went a little crazy with five different beard colors on the warriors  :o

Currently slowly working on one unit of rangers, thunders, the cannons and the gyrocopters.

Basing materials on order; plan is to get a basic 1k force done by Christmas... with the parents in town, taking advantage of the free babysitting to play against my wife's HE  :)

For that goal need to paint up another 3 warrior units and finish the rangers + 1 gyrocopter.

Pictures to follow.

Yeah!

Another ebay auction rolled in; second brigade of warriors, second trollslayer and thunder unit cleaned and glued to a stick.  To bad the weather sucks - to cold to prime.

GW order expected to arrive tonight; 6 more warrior units, 2 more rangers and BOFA.  Probably need to get a green spray can for the goblins - but going to examine the models first.

Finished the first three warrior units, two cannon units, one ranger unit and one trollslayer unit, including basing. 7 units in five weeks.

Now just to keep up the pace... Goal for January is finishing off the hero, runesmith and general; three more warriors, another ranger and trollslayer.

February - three more warriors, gyrocopter, ranger

March - three more warriors, ranger, 2x gyrocopter

April - 4x thunders, flame cannon

After a year, I have static grass to put on the last unit of warriors and hammers. First warmaster army completed!

Next up - 1. goblins, I all need to finish is a pair of giants.
2. Three units of elf knights and one dragon for my wife, to finish the elves;
3. Chaos - nothing painted
4. Lizardmen - one blister bought  :P
5. Empire - one box of random blisters from 2000 to finish up that army to 4k...

Any chance of some pictures of all this painted stuff? I've got a dwarf army to paint up and could do with some inspiration  :).

In three weeks I'll be going to the NH warmaster event and will set it up with all its bearded glory.

I don't have a gaming table right - its a project for spring.
