no wait, hear me out!

Ok so I know dwarfs don't do the horse thing, but I need some ideas. I'm planning a chess set of dwarfs vs chaos dwarfs. Pretty much everything seems to "fit" nicely except for the dwarf knights.

I'm a little stuck for ideas and not being a fantasy player I'm struggling to pull something out of the dwarf history that'll work.

Whatever it is, it'll need to fit on a base no bigger than 1inch square, since that's the size of the board I'm making.

Would really appreciate any suggestions you guys can come up with. Will entertain all thoughts, but it has to fit with the dwarfiness of the rest of the guys.

Cheers folks,
Si

Classic Blood Bowl Dwarf Deathroller would work and fit.

too big, need to be one one inch square

you can convert dwarves with back packs or use slayers (without armour they should be faster,you'd think) or nother dwarf special unit

Reaper makes a few different Dwarves mounted on bears too. Might work.

They have to roll for bear animosity - on a 6, the bears become frenzied; on a 1, they eat the Dwarf.

thanks for the suggestions, some really great models there (and some completely bonkers ones!).

I was tempted wth the idea of some sort of miniature gyrocopter, but I think a stuntie on a bear is just too tempting to resist. I'll go have a proper rummage through all those sites and pick one.

Cheers again,

The ale-powered buggy they planned to use as a dwarf mount in warhammer online (easy to google)? You need to build it, though.

Use the pony from the grudge wagon in the BFSP set.

However, It will not fit on a one inch square.

What Chaos Dwarf cavalry fits on a one inch square?

The pony should qualify for 1"x1.5" at least; even giant wolves get 1"x2".
