Durgrim Redmane cast an eye over the crowd ignoring the snores of the weak headed who had already succumbed to the ale.
That is the first senteance I read when i started my first warhammer army. So very long ago. A Dwarf army off coarse. Now you ask why i`m posting this (unless you succumbed to the ale). Take a seat for a long story. (or scroll on to the pictures)
Dwarfs were my first army. Partly painted in oil paint so thick the could bounce off a wall. (and did just to prove chipping does not exist) Had them up to a sizeable force before getting into chaos and guard and orkz.
I returned to my beloved beardlings at the time of the Storm of Chaos. And made a slayer army. I got addicted to doomseekers, and then got bored of them.
After that I started a new Dwarf army. Painted to a slightly higher standard. they needed a darker look then the red and white of old, so I went for black and purple. This force got to about 2000 points. before being retired just before the new edition of warhammer.
Right now I feel the need to get them up and running again. With more then some help from Boreas I got to work. I strated digging and rebased the remnants of the purple army.
These had normal bases with some stones, grass and snow. But i redid them with plaster blocks i got off Boreas. He ussed them for his dwarfs too.
But 20 warriors is not the most awesome sight on a battlefield, so i started digging. (getting in the dwarf spirit) I found 20 more warriors, mainly skullpass. Good enough for my tastes. Enter a horde of warriors.
I then stumbled on the oldest warriors in my collection. Over 60 warriors. Once 3 units, now the survivors are fixed up and they will for a second horde of warriors. They are rebased as you can see, but still need a touch up.
Then a unit of crossbow-dwarfs. These are the models one can make out of the current. But i added an old drunken dwarf to fill out the ranks.
Will post more tomorrow, there are characters and artillery calling for attention.
