Hi, I have never seen the recent plastic dwarf in reallity. I saw them only on pics and I have the impression that they are not very good detailed (but it's maybe only an impression). Those who have them, and who have painted some of them, what are you thinking about the quality of these recent plastic dwarfs (warrior and crossbowman) ? Are they detailed such the beastmen, lizardmen, chaos warriors and other "great looking" plastic minis ?
Do you dont think that they are to static?
After all, just for the look, what do you prefear : great weapons or basic weapon and shield ?
And for the crossbowmen, which weapon do you prefear ?

thanks for your advises and for discuss about this plastic box.

It's a bit strange. I think they're very well detailed, but also very static. Kinda like Chaos Warriors.

Their alright but the only down side is that you have to paint them in bits rather then assembled which is quite ashame.Because i like to assemble them then spray them then paint them its because their detail is hidden when they are assembled and it makes it looks strange when you can't paint an area because some thing is in the way as for other models i can paint them assembled.

a lot of minis are such this : you need to paint them un assembled to paint the area you want.
Otherwise, wich weapons do you prefear (or do you like both) ?
Is the dwarf plastic multipart box one of the best multipart plastic box ? Are the sculpt of the weapons good, or are they not very detailed ?

They're both a hell of better than the old "giant hands" dwarf boxest.

They're decent quality, nothing amazing, but solid, good work. Very detailed, but the biggest downside is that the torso and head are one piece.

I have the impression that the plastic boxes come with "one part" models, like chaos warrior, dwarf, or the new night boblins. Even the lizardmen are static.
What are you thinking about this ? Look at the men at arms, they're all static and look all similar...

The 'new' plastic dwarfs certainly are a lot (!) better than the sack-o-potatoes-with-hamsized-fists ones that we had in the 6th ed.
They are quite detailed an characterful, but also quite difficult to paint.

Why? Because the cloth areas are very smooth. There is little folds in them which result in that you will have to blend in order to make it look good. Of course, if you are a skilled painter it shouldn't be a problem...

The new plastic dwarfs are the best they have produced. However, to date there hasn't really been a great deal of competition.

I do agree they are one of the best models i also think that chaos worriors are a good plastic models aswell.
