Im VERY interested in a Chaos Dwarf army. I can’t wait 2 years and wait around hoping the rumors of a Chaos Dwarf release are true. I also don’t have a spare $1,000 (or 2!!) to buy old OOP models.
The new Dwarf plastic are 2 main pieces, the front/head/beard and the back/main body. I was wondering if you could possibly just use the back Dwarf piece, attach a Chaos warior helm/head, and then sculpt a beard with greenstuff & fill the gaps. Im not sure if thats what IMAHOBGOBLIN did or not…I’ll have to ask. It seems like he just sawed off the top part of the Dwarf head.
I guess I’ll have to stop off at my local shop, pick up some supplies & experiment myself.
I plan on using the regular Dwarf list “counts as”. Blunderbusses are Thunderers, Sorcerers are Runesmiths,etc,etc.
Has anyone tried the idea I mentioned??
My DEEPEST apologies. I just realized this is in the wrong place. There are 2 different forums, one for actual conversions, and one for ideas. My apology to the Mods.
the way i am doing mine is chopping the heads off and attaching a skull, shaving the beards and adding a beard, and sculpting scale main over the chain. it’s fairly easy and i think effective. if i had a camera id post some pics.
There are also the miner plastics which give you bare arms, but a problem on the blunderbussers (unless you fancy a fair bit of converting)
The warrior heads can be effective, and a lot quicker than sculpting masks/ building hats.
So it’s probably worth taking time to decide what look you are going for, and whats the easiest/ quickest way to get there.��Looking perhaps at the army as a whole; background, units to be included, army themes etc.
Thats the problem with Chaos Dwarfs.��Because there isn’t a defined look for them its easy to get stuck building loads of concept models of things trying to come up with a design you like.��Or waiting until you hit upon the ideal design and not having much of an army for ages.
Then when you do get a good idea it still takes loads of work because you have to sculpt/ convert pretty much every model in the army.
