Dwarf Tales are know for some rather detailed dwarfs slightly bigger than GW miniatures - but still on 20mm bases.
Right now, they do 3 races: Lidds (Kind of beastmen), Dwarfs and Org’kka (kind of Orcs) - but it seems they are planing to do a few more: Humans, Elves and some evil dwafs called ‘Volgars’. Dwarfs that seems to be possessed by a daemonic Lord call Demedorr.
Just a small message ;) I had a chat with Rafal from DwarfTales. He told me, that the next race will be humans (rather promising, too - look http://www.dwarftales.com/res/Nr9XN6HoTh/hussar01.jpg ;) ), but after that they will do the Volgar's
Concept for the first Volgar Dwarf is up in the DwarfTales forum - first greens will be up soon
About his ‘static pose’ Kubasa wrote at the DwarfTales forum:
… - it’s pose may seem quite static, but it is intentional, as this is the �?oprologue�?� to the new race and I wanted all details to be extremely visible Anyway �?" it�?Ts the dwarf, wicked and mutated but still the dwarf �?" so he mustn�?Tt wave his limbs all around as some tumbler or clown
I like this concept - this could be some quite interesting alternatives.
With a price of something like �,�7 each model - and a limited number of models available - definitely hero/special character potential - or a elite unit - and my guess is, that they will rank like s*** on 20mm bases
I don’t like the goggles, and the legs are odd. It looks like he has no thighs, let alone knees. Combined with the arms, this means he looks a bit like a fat human doing that thing where you tie shoes to your knees and walk around like a funny dwarf. Apart from those it looks really good.
