Thordis Svertingsdatter

Nothing says Easter long weekend like a Viking shield maiden. Am I right? In between painting and basing dwarves to the point where I'm seeing them in my sleep, I finished this one during the weekend. I really like Foundry miniatures. Who cares if they cost a little more? You can't take it with ya, so you might as well spend it.

The Dwarf King and his Lords

Here he is without a banner. Poor fellow. I may have to employ one of my more talented pals to make him one...

"...the dwarf-lords in their halls of stone."

Stalwart dwarves.

Classed as heavy infantry in Fantasy Impetus, these guys are my main force. I have eight units of these. I'm looking at unarmoured Norman spearmen from the Crusader Miniatures range as a human light infantry back-up for them. The Dwarf Lord is up next as soon as I can bash up a suitable banner for him. I'm not too good at flags but I'll see what I can do.

If used for Kings of War, the boys will be deployed back-to-back as regiments.

Two more done.

The army is coming along now. One thing my dwarves are lacking is some type of cavalry. I plan on fielding a human allied contingent to fill that role. I've been eyeing some figures from Musketeer Miniatures' Goth/Germanic line. I especially like the Bucellarii/Commitatus figures because they've got cloaks. I like cloaks.

These are going to be the elite King's Guard sort of boys.

I like dwarf ranged units because they can crack heads as well as shoot.

A group shot.

Glad to be back in civilization and an update.

Finally home after almost seven weeks working up in the oilpatch. I'm physically exhausted but taking some dwarves with me to work on while I was up there means at least my mind is still whole.

I knocked up two of the units with this basing method. It's pretty basic but it was quick to do and that's what's important to me.
