Dwarf spearman #2

Initially part of the ballista crew, I have converted this dwarf by adding a spear head from White Knight's range to enlist him in my regiment of dwarf warriors.

Dwarf spearman #1

All right, time to start a new regiment! According to my army list, I have a second unit of dwarf warriors to do, and I've decided to equip them with shields and spears.

Compared to axe, hammer or even sword, this weapon is rather rare in the Citadel range, and it's not so easy to gather a coherent group of miniatures with arms ranging from javelins to pikes. To tell the truth, I'm not sure that the band I have collected will work in its current state (I've even included one of Bob Olley's dwarves!) but I hope the shields will help to uniformise the whole.We'll see...

So, my first model is the first warrior (DW1) of the MM10 Dwarf Marauder range. Nice helmet, but the scale armour is a nightmare to paint.

Crossbowman #21

In a previous attempt to paint this mini, I had cut and repositioned the left hand to give him a better grasp on the crossbow. Sadly, I lost the original piece of metal when I cleaned off the paint, and I had to find another one. As you can see below, the result is not totally satisfying...

Still have to paint 9 of his comrades to complete my third and last unit of quarellers. Sigh...

Crossbowmen #19 and #20

Shame on me, only one post in Octobrer, this has to change! So I've finally decided to join the third season of the Brush Slave League on the Chaos Dwarfs forum. For the first month, I was able to finish three quarellers, insufficient to get the maximum points with the rules, but enough to complete my second unit of quarellers. Yipee!

First some blurry pictures (sorry about that).

And now my third completed unit...

 OK... What next? Probably some dwarf warriors, this time equipped with spears and shields.
