A 21-gun salute to celebrate my hundredth follower! The crew is a Marauder dwarf, the gun is the ex-Citadel and now Wargames Foundry Bell Bombard, unfortunately sold without axle and with smaller wheels than the original ones.

For the painting, I've drawn insipiration from the Rackham Griffin cannons and I'm quite happy with the result (although there is always room for improvement!).

Half a regiment in 6 months...

I knew from the beginning that this regiment would be hard to complete, but six months to paint only 10 dwarfs... This is ridiculous! Anyway, here are the first two ranks of this glorious regiment.

Now, let's do the maths: one warrior with shield and spear = 12 points, multiplied by 12 to take into account the musician and the standard bearer... 144 points, that is 24 points per month. 

Considering that I have already painted
  • 20 crossbowmen = 260 points
  • 20 warriors with shields, double handed weapons, musician and standard bearer = 286 points
  • 10 hammerers with standard bearer = 176 points
  • 1 fire thrower team with light armours = 60 points
At this pace, I'll need 7 more years to complete a 3000 points army... Sigh.

Dwarf spearman #10

A Marauder dwarf to conclude the first ten. The face was a little bit hard to paint, but since this guy is not in the front rank, it doesn't matter :)

Dwarf spearman #9

All right, time to unveil my standard bearer. Initially, there was a flag, but after one month of efforts (one month!), I couldn't get a satisfying result. So I've snapped the flag, shortened the pole, and reduced the proud banner to a simple black cross :/ The miniature is an old Citadel dwarf, from the preslotta era I think.

Dwarf spearman #8

And here is the musician of my regiment of spearmen. I've slightly converted a Citadel Imperial Dwarf by replacing the original axe by a weapon from Hasslefree Miniatures. In my opinion, it works quite well. What do you think?
