Over 12 years ago I got into Warhammer Fantasy playing good ol’ fashion Dwarfs. After a couple years I started branching out into Wood Elves, and eventually in 2000 I decided to build a Chaos Dwarf army.
I Was sick of ‘good guys’ all the time, and everyone and their dogs had a Skaven or Chaos army in my town, so I went with a rare army choice. I am the only person I’ve ever seen to collect CD figures, and after a few month binge on EBay I had a healthy contingent.
I Painted up my 20 man CD Warrior unit first, followed by a Lord on a Taurus and 5 Bull Centaurs. I totally fell in love with hobgoblins so I painted a command group, one archer, and one warrior, along with 22 Sneaky Gits.
Supplemented with Dogs Of War RoW, I was able to field 2000 points.
After playing a couple of games, my lord was stolen by some punk kid, and Dogs of War became my main army, the Chaos Dwarfs along with most of my fantasy army were lost to oblivion. Over the past decade I’ve only played a few times, my DoG army was silly and unstoppable and often my opponents only score a half dozen wounds before they army was decimated to the man. It wasn’t much fun for people, and my buddies game store closed down.
A couple weeks ago my best friend started painting, I dug through the old Warhammer boxes and found out exactly what I had to paint, and today slapped paint on some figures for the first time since 2005. It was daunting but glorious! I’m painting up a Doom Rocket with crew (awesome models too! never really looked at them) 12 Blunderbusses, a CD Command group, and Astrogoth. It used to take me only a few hours to put out 10-15 quality figures, but I have a feeling this first batch will be quite an event for me!
I’ll have some pictures either tomorrow or the next day of what I have painted, and WIP pics of our setup!
