HISTORY OF AN ARMY:

While excavating further tunnels in Karak Norn, a group of miners discovered a small rune bound chest. The discovery was brought to the immediate attention of the King of Karak Norn, who then called his greatest Runesmiths together to decipher the ancient text that seemed to bind the chest closed. After several days of deliberation, which is very fast in Dwarf terms, the answer was that the chest was "evil". During the trials, three of the Runesmiths were severely injured, their minds reduced to childish gibberish. Recognizing that the chest could pose a great threat, but unknowing of the exact nature of the threat, the King of Karak Norn decides to dispatch a small force to take the chest to the greatest Runelord still living, Thorek Ironbrow of Karak Azul.

Hoping to not cause great alarm in his own kingdom, the King sends a summons to a remote clan, the Stonefists. and Kalar Stonefist, leader of the clan, immediately dispatches his eldest son, Karal Stonefist and his best warriors and quarrellers to meet with the King. Once Karal arrives, he is given the chest and a sealed letter to present to the other Dwarf Holds along his route south, with specific instructions not to read the letter. He is also given a great cannon and contingent of the Kings very own body guard to ensure success of the mission.

Heading south through the Grey Mountains, it is not long before Karal and his contingent are set upon by a Night Goblin tribe, attacking with a fury and precision unusual for the greedy Gobbos. All may have been lost, but as the battle began to turn a roaming band of Slayers arrived, pushing the tide of battle back in favor of the dwarves. Soon, the Night Goblins were in a full route. After explaining his mission to Logan Battlefury, the leader of the Slayers, Logan agrees to stay with the Stonefists until the expedition is complete.

In the meantime, Skarsnik,, Warlord of the Eight Peaks, had been engaged in a stalemate attack on the defensive hold of Karak Eight Peaks against the self-proclaimed true king of the Hold, Belagar Ironhammer. As the dwarves of the Hold began to prepare a counter offensive to attempt to sway the battle, a great mist arose shrouding the battlefield. When it dispersed, the entire night goblin army had left. Taking a portion of his forces, Belegar gave pursuit north thru the badlands, and across the black mountains, with the Warlord always one step ahead. During this pursuit, Belegar gave witness to Orc and Goblin tribes gathering in numbers that he had not seen even in his time retaking the Eight Peaks, numbers that could only mean one thing- invasion! Belegar and his force finally found the army, camped in the midst of what was once a small dwarven settlement, the Stonehand Hold. Now reduced to rubble, a rage came over Belegar and his army charged straight in, finally routing the army of night goblins and sending them scrambling. After questioning a few captured goblins, and before executing them, it is discovered that Skarsnik was seeking a chest within the hld. Soon finding the devastated remnants of the Stonefist clan, Kalar Stonefist relayed the tale of the chest and his son’s treacherous quest to deliver it to Karak Azul. With a promise to rejoin him, Belegar leaves a small contingent with Kalar to assist him in getting the surviving woman and children to the safety of Karak Norn and to help bolster his son’s chances of success. With that, Belegar sets off to warn the King of Kings, Thorgrim Grudgebearer of what has transpired and of what he saw in the Badlands, while Kalar speedily heads to catch up with his son.

KARAL, DWARF THANE

KARAL STONEFIST, DWARF THANE, ELDEST SON OF KALAR STONEFIST
Karal Stonefist, the eldest son of the King of the Stonefist Clan Kalar Stonefist. Karal, a mere 108 years old, has been given a critical mission by his father, Kalar. Well-liked by all in the clan, Karal has led a life of relative ease and peace in the hold. With this quest, he can now prove that he is worthy to one day lead the Stonefists. He was tasked to travel to Karak Norn, retrieve a package from the king of Karak Norn, then proceed to travel to Karak Azul to present the package to Thorek Ironbrow for examination. A simple box inscribed with one glowing rune... Along with this the King of Karak Norn also gave him sent with him 10 of his best warriors, from his own personal guard (The Gryphons Talons), and a letter that he was told to present to each King that he came across on his way to Karak Azul, but oathsworn not to read himself. Little does the Dwarven realm know that they have entrusted the future of not only the Dawi, but of the world on his broad shoulders.

BHALGUR'S SUREFIRES

BHALGUR'S SUREFIRES
Bhalgur Surefire, another dwarf of a young age, being born the same year as Karal Stonefist, has quickly become one of the best and most reliable hunters of the Stonefist Clan. Not having a "proper" fighting force, Karal asked Bhalgur to gather his best hunters together to form a fine crossbow regiment. Bhalgur did this, and within a matter of hours the Surefires were ready for this grand adventure.

DREGARS TREESTOMPERS - DWARF WARRIORS

DREGAR'S TREESTOMPERS
Every dwarf of the Stonefist clan, no matter his station, is required to have a proffession and to be a warrior. In times of war the Stonefist clan calls its levies together into loose groups of individuals. In this case, the tree cutters of the Stonefist clan have banded together under the leadership of Dregar Treestump when they heard of the expedition of Karal. Sharpening their blades for the journey, this group is anxious to prove its worth in battle.

THE GRYPHONS CLAW - DWARVEN LONGBEARDS
The Gryphon's Claw is an elite guild within Karak Norn that comprises some of the mightiest warriors within the hold, all of whom are oathsworn to the King of Karak Norn himself and would gladly give their lives in his service. The King has granted this small contingent to protect Karal on his quest, knowing what few other Dwarfs know, that the outcome of this mission could very well be the end for what remains of the Dwarven Empire.

Led by the Engineer, Thorgrin Dragonbreath, this Cannon and its crew have turned the tide of many battles to the favor of the Dawi. As a final gesture of faith and confidence in the mission, the King of Karak Norn has gifted the use of the cannon for the duration of his quest.

LOGAN BATTLEFURY, DWARF DRAGONSLAYER

Logan Battlefury, brother of Logrim Battlefury and the original heir apparent to the Battlefury Clan. Logan took the slayer oath many years ago, after fighting a decisive battle against a hording Night Goblin army. Outnumbered nearly ten to one, Logan and his father charged into battle knowing that victory was not possible. The Battlefury Clan fought valiantly, and somehow managed to route the Gobbo's, but at a terrible cost. Logan's father lost his life, as did three fourths of the remaining dwarf army. From this day, Logan and a handful of the surviving Battlefury Clan took the slayer oath, vowing to eradicate the Gobbo incursion into the kingdoms of the Dwarves and have since wandered the holds offering their might to any Dwarfs in need.

I like how one of the dwarfs has a orange beard in a "greybeard" unit :P I really enjoy the snow and bases. You wouldn't happen to have a pic of the bases right after they are spackled? I'm curious, as my whole Chaos Army needs nice shiny (relative term) bases. Great job, love the Hero Dwarf

hey man.. just got a chance to look through all of your armies (since they are all together right now) what models are those greybeards?
everything else is looking great and especially love the look of the bases for your empire... i think i might steal it for my own kinda cobblestone look :) thanks!

BARDAL THE MAD

One of the runesmiths tasked with testing the rune bound chest in Karak Norn, Bardal was once the head smith of the clan. During the final attempt to break the bindings on the chest, Bardal and two other runesmiths were hit with powerful enegy from the chest, wiping there minds free. Bardal now can speak only in gibberish, but the one phrase that continues to come is "He is coming!". Where once he wielded proud hammer and pounded runes against anvil, Bardal now wields a field scythe and somehow maintains much of his power, carving intricate runes into the earth itself. After the expedition left, Bardal followed and continues following, though for reasons of his own imagining he stays hidden in the shadows, unbeknownst to the Dwarfs he follows.

Anyway, I am going to call them done now. I updated the History section in the beginning of the thread as well.

Throw me a vote at CMON if you get a chance: 10 Dwarf Longbeards (http://coolminiornot.com/238707)

So, what is up next??? We are going to do a Dragon Slayer, 10 Slayers, and a cannon to bring us to 1000 points.

Dark Raven: Thanks mate. For colors I usually use three (shadow, base, highlight), but I do progressive stages in between each to transition the colors together.

Zombies: Well sir, that is very nice of you to say.

mousekiller, you've always been among my favorite painters. You're style and skill is something I've never been able to match(as hard as I try), and even though I'm really happy with my current work on my Skaven(check out my project log "Children of the Horned Rat" if you would, I'd be honoured to have your opinion), I'm still insanely jealous and in awe of your work.

These Dwarfs are incredible, and the Slayers look like they're going to be yet another complete success and lesson in coolness. I'd love to one day face these bearded-ones on the tabletop with my glorious ratmen...although I know I'd be distracted the whole time with the amazing work you've done on them.

mousekiller, I know you get a lot of praise, but rest assured, it's beyond well deserved and I think you're an AMAZING painter. I can't wait to see more!

Dino

Ok, the slayers are coming along (just slow going these days, I have been busy)... but I started the base for the cannon and crew and thought I would post an in progress bit for you as I have had a few questions in the past on how I do my bases.

So, to start I cut a piece of plasticard to the size that I wanted. Some people really like square bases, but I found a while ago that for my scenic bases I prefer something a bit nonstandard - after all it is really just acting as a movement tray and there to compliment the miniature anyway. Once I had that cut, I cut a piece of a 2mm foam sheet to fit over top of it and then cut the bases slots where the miniatures will go before gluing it on. I wanted my engineer to have a slightly elevated position, so I found a nice piece of rock to do just that for me. On top of this I also glued a piece of 2mm foam and cut a slot for him to fit into. I also added a few bits from the battle for skull pass set.

http://www.reapermini.com/forum/uploads/monthly_03_2010/post-2668-12700480955625_thumb.jpg

This is what it looks like with the models. Keep in mind that these models are going to get a repaint.

http://www.reapermini.com/forum/uploads/monthly_03_2010/post-2668-12700481047288_thumb.jpg

The next step is to add spackling compound to the whole thing. I also added some more rock pieces, a bucket of water for the cannon stuffer, and a couple of barrels.

http://www.reapermini.com/forum/uploads/monthly_03_2010/post-2668-12700481121679_thumb.jpg

And again with the models...

http://www.reapermini.com/forum/uploads/monthly_03_2010/post-2668-1270048118237_thumb.jpg

Well, that is it for now, be back later with the next update.

King Thor: I use woodland scenics snow effect with elmers glue, the trick is how much water and glue to add. More water and glue = more slushy snow. Less water and glue will give you clumpy snow. Hope that helps.

n810: Just something so special about them...

Localicious: Well thanks mate...

Ereinion: Thanks for the following mate...

Toshiro: Thanks mate.

WGG: Thanks, as always.

mousekiller
02-04-2010, 16:00
Ok, so the next step for the base is to sand the whole thing. I use a mix of sand and small rocks for the dwarves. Also, I built a set of steps for the engineer to get onto the rock with.

Dear Mousekiller.

Hello, my name is Kaos.

I must inform you that i like your dwarfs. And further i like that cannon very much. And also i think i need to adress the subject of your paintingskills. They are very good as far as I can conclude. Some would say theyre "awesome" and i think i need to agree.

There need to be more pictures of more models in here and i would like you to see to this problem, if we can call it that, and keep on painting and showing us your models as they are finished.

If you fail to do this i must send a complaint in three copies and i do not wish this.

Dearest wishes

Anyway, the cannon is done. I have updated the beginning of the thread (as I always do, I go back and edit in the completed photos from the beginning) with A LOT of pictures of the cannon and a bit of history on this cannon. I am going to post some pics here just of the overall model, but if you want to see it in more detail scroll back to the beginning of the thread and scroll down to where the cannon is, and if you haven't seen the rest of the army you can check them out as well.

Ok, with the purchase of photo shop, I thought it might be time for an update on the dwarves, not only for comments on the dwarves themselves but also on the pictures.

So, as far as progress goes, I have finished all of the skin on these guys for all 10 of them. The rest are in various stages of completion. Three of them have received tattoos, which hopefully the pictures will represent well. This is the direction I am going with these dwarves, so let me know what you think. Also, picture advice is very helpful.

This picture I am not sure if I am happy with, though I can't put my finger on what. I suppose it still seems to be a bit blurry, which is increasingly the case when there is more then one model in the shot.

Well.... it has been over a year since I have done any serious painting. I am officially blaming work for this indiscretion... and moving across the country. In order to ease myself back into it, I picked up some half finished mini's from the Games Workshop 7th edition release... you remember, the really cheap plastic dwarfs.

Anyway, here they are... adding them to the dwarf army.

Looks great. You have inspired me to go back to my dwarfs and finally repaint them.

How did you paint the rocks on the warmachine base? I always have trouble getting stone to look natural but you've done it spot on.

So, on to some more detail business. I started working on this guy a year ago, so I figure it is about time to finish him. He is in the same boat as my Ogre Tyrant, probably will be completely done sometime next week, depending on how much actual painting I get in this week... so that means about a week to hit me with critiques on what to do better.

I have added some color to him, hoping to bring out some character. The blue paint on his face and arms, the gems, and the green dye in his hair... let me know what else (besides the bits that are still not done, like the fur wrap around is center) I can do to make him stand out... Thanks!

I am working on some of the other army stuff as well... finishing out a unit of 20 Empire Handgunners (5 more to go), a unit of 20 skeletons (10 more to go), and I am just about ready to primer Skarsnik for painting...

THANKS FOR ALL THE WELCOME'S BACK, I really appreciate it. I am very glad to be back and painting again, and look forward to sharing the hobby with you all again!

Surely a Dwarf army that is pleasant to behold. The colours work really well on dwarfs.

The woodgrain on the weapon handles are a nice touch too.

You say you use some woodland scenics product for your snow. Is it this one you mean: "Ground Cover » Soft Flake Snow"

Very characterful slayer. I don't know how you can make him pop more besides maybe highlighting the gold up another layer, you'd want it to match the gold on the other dwarves though so that might keep it out of the options. Also, you've got some mold lines on his hammer.

20-11-2011, 06:08
So, a little work got done this week, but I think he is definitely getting there. I changed some things around, to better tie in the colors. Another few hours of painting and I might be able to call him done... Any other tips or suggestions?

Griffonclaw: Thanks mate, glad to be back.... that was waaay too long without doing any painting.

KNC: Thanks mate, that is very nice of you to say!

Zywus: That is it exactly. Just play around with the glue, water, snow flake mix until you get a consistency that works for you.

Daniel36: Thank you... still loads to paint :)

mdiscala: Thanks mate, I shaved those mould lines down, so hopefully they are no longer a problem. Also, decided to go with a blue hue for the hammer heads, though I am not entirely sure if I have sold myself on them yet...

Ok, going to call him done now... as always I would like to do more with him... but at some point you have to move on. I am not completely happy with the axeheads and I tried a few new techniques for the gems that I am not totally sold on... in any case, without further ado...

http://www.reapermini.com/forum/uploads/monthly_12_2011/post-2668-13248749058244_thumb.jpg

So... what else is on the table...

Orcs and Goblins: Working the robes on skarsnik.
Empire: Basecoated the last rank of handgunners and prepped the movement tray for painting.
Beasts: Still haven't really done anything with these... so primed and ready to paint when I feel the tug.
Mortals of Chaos: Getting the next two ranks of marauders pinned into place.
Skeletons: Close to being done with the third rank. Trying a green eye glow thing that I am not convinced of yet.

And, whats next for the dwarves is the second rank of slayers:

So, what else has been getting done:


Vampires: Almost done with the last rank of skeles, just need to finish up the wood and bases, and make a 20 slot base for them.


Ogres: Almost done with the first rank of ogres. Painted the banner up, finished all three pants, all skin. Need to do tattoos still, and the metal bits need a good rusting.


Orcs and Goblins: Getting much closer to being done with skarsnik, did the wood bits, fixed the gobbla scales and horn parts. Still need to do the bone bits on skarsniks head piece and disgustify the inside of gobbla's mouth. Also the dwarf beard bits on skarsniks front side still need to be done.


Daemons: re-basing the daemon prince... was originally going to do an all lava base... but I really don't think I would like how that would look across a board in an army... instead I think I will do land with bits of lava bursting thru.


Mortals of Chaos: Skin started on the third rank of marauders.


Skaven: Painting the base, almost done. Also started the skin on the rat monstrosity.


Beasts: No prgress,


Empire: Basing the first of the knights panter. Ready for primer.


Dwarfs: Up next will be:


Bardal the Mad

purplebeard: Thanks mate.
gogs: Thanks!
Dino: All done now :)
Momus: Would probably need a few thousand more points :)
Mercutius: It is really hard to say, since these were a project I started last year and picked back up this year. If I wasn't so scattered, I could probably do a single dwarf in about 6 painting hours.
Rikk: Glad to hear mate, can't wait to see them!

It has been a while. One divorce, a deployment to Afghanistan, and a subsequent move to Hawaii. I have painted a few things in that time, quite a bit with the dwarfs (they seem to be my fall back when I don't want to think about color schemes, etc). I have added a bolt thrower, a unit of Thunderers, and finished up the Ironbreakers. Currently have on the table a unit of warriors and an organ gun (almost done with both)... with another thane and runelord on standby. Took some pictures to update, but they really came out like garbage. I can't find my photo box, so I may have to go get another one... and while I am at it maybe a new camera. Any suggestions on good ones? I really want some nice, professional looking photos.

Finished the organ gun. Calling this one the "Quintuplet".

KALAR STONEFIST, DWARF THANE, THANE OF THE STONEFIST CLAN

Kalar was the one time ruler of the Stonefist Hold, on the outskirts of Karak Norn, and paid tribute to the King of Karak Norn. When a mysterious chest was found in the belly of Karak Norn, King Brokk Ironpick sent a summons to the Stonefist clan for immediate assistance. Loyal to the bone, Kalar immediately dispatched his son to retrieve the item and take it to Karaz Azul, where it could be investigated by the greatest runesmith to ever live, Thorek Ironbrow. Soon after, a large army led by the goblin warlord, Skarsnik, attacked the small Stonefist hold with no warning. With little time to react, Kalar and the clan fought as valiantly as they could but were soon overrun. If not for the goblins pausing to loot and raze the hold, the clan may not have survived. Kalar, knowing he could not defeat such a force, began to gather the survivors and make the treacherous trek to Karak Norn. On the way, a large dwarven force led by Belegar Ironhammer, King of Karak Eight Peaks, found the devastated force and informed them that he had scattered the goblin force but that the hold had been completely destroyed. During this time, the two discovered the reason for Skarsniks brutal attack had been to find a chest, and soon the realism of the importance of this chest became more apparent. Leaving a unit of ironbreakers and an organ gun with Kalar, the two part ways, Belegar to report to the King of Kings, Thorgrem Grudgebearer, and the other to reunite with his endangered son.

KALAR’S GRUDGE – DWARF GRUDGETHROWER

In the aftermath of the attack on the Stonefist Hold, many of the surviving Dwarfs swore vengeance in one form or another. Kruger Treestump, a younger brother to Dragar Treestump, returned to the ruins of the Hold and gathered what materials he would need from the wreckage of the one-time settlement. Soon, a simple yet effective stone thrower was built with the sole purpose of seeking vengeance against the Goblin horde who had caused such destruction and death.

DRAGON'S DEFENDERS - DWARF THUNDERERS
The Dragon's Defenders are a small detachment of marksmen, hired directly by Thorgrin Dragonsbreath, to defend the Dragon's Breath Cannon, allowing it to maximize damage on the battlefield and protecting it during transport.

This update reflects the additional 6 hand gunners painted to reinforce the original 10 strength regiment from earlier in the thread. I think they look much better with more troopers!
