Hey guys, got a little update. I’ve made a bunch more squigs and trolls which I’ll show you ASAP. But in the meantime, I’ve got an inch for old school dwarves that just had to be scratched, so I went and got a bunch. I don’t know what will come of them but I’m making them lol.
Here’s the first unit finished:
Now the thinking here was to do something a bit different and try to make unique but still recognisable ‘regular’ dwarf warriors, so these are hammerers fitted out with hand weapons and given iron breaker shields (because they’re smaller and more generic looking than the longbeard shields).
The initial plan was to vary them a bit but I never realised that they had actual hammers in their beards. Thus the hammer theme became too strong and so I embraced it lol. I plan to do the same with an ‘axe’ themed clan.
And that’s not all. I’m also making more elite versions with thick armour, by combining ironbreaker/warden bits with those nice big longbeard shields. You can see the first of those here:
Notice also the early prototype regular. That axe was soon swapped lol.
I have no idea what will ultimately become of these but I think it’s nice to have something to work besides goblins, marines and overlords. Keeps things interesting lol.
