    Classic, all-metal Dwarf army

    My Classic imperial dwarf army in its entirety. Have rebased and repainted quite a few since first posting here some time back, as the throng lacked visual coherency. About 180 models have yet to receive a single stroke of the brush- quite daunting to say the least but fun nonetheless!

    Sorry for the lack of definition in the pics, my camera folded so I have to use my phonecam.

    The whole army so far:







    Same unit with front rank removed:

    Im absolutely nuts about old dwarf models and do my best to collect them to the best of my abilities. Needless to say Im actually speechless when I type this, as was I when I opened your thread. Amazing. Your painting is very nice and adds much to the already awesome miniatures. Subscribed.

    I have to say, you painted them quite nice. Especially the banners and those shields of Bugman's rangers.
    However I'm not thrilled about the models themselves. I think they look more like garden gnomes than dwarfs. =p

    We're not just going to shoot the basterds. We're going to cut out their living guts, and use them to grease our treads!

    Your extraordinary army shows us how much the current Dwarf range sucks.

    Those dwarves are full of character. Are they all citadel/GW ?

    Yup, all GW (i.e. Citadel or Marauder) models from 1985-1992. All metal, no plastics, not counting bases or the odd crossbow. I try to avoid multiples of the same model, so all models in the army remain fairly unique. They are indeed full of character, although some tend toward the gnome-ish in design at least compared to today's Norse- themed dwarfs. But in my eyes that adds to the character and fun of them all.

    Exactly what I am doing with ny greenskin horde: All metal (almost), no bull, no doubles. I love Citadel and Marauder oldschool stuff.
    Wondeful army you have!
