Breathing life into 1994 minis

I’ve started painting up my 1994 chaos dwarves, starting with my blunder buses and sorcerer.

Nice work on these! I especially like the Lamassu beard and hair fades.

Thank you! Trying for the more classical look like in the white dwarf publication.

Needed a break from the blunder buses. Almost done with the death rocket.

Thanks! Soon we’ll have enough painted to march forward. Need to find a goblin tribe to crush.

Now I need the 1994/5 decals. Looked on eBay and they are wicked expensive.

Back in the day, I would cut out images of skulls from White Dwarf and glue them onto the shields (then a bit of fixing the edges). You could probably print out a copy of the decals and do the same.

I’ll see if I can find some print outs and do the decal thing from that.

Took about a week but finally got this guy ready to fight. Plus another blunder bus. I’ve noticed and learned a few things with this model:

  1. This mini was poorly cast. The brim was missing in places, skulls were blurred out, and the wand wasn’t completely cast.
  2. These models always seem to tip backwards. I used a larger base and flipped the long side to the back.
  3. For the bases, Woodland scenics model railroad materials works great and cheaper to acquire. Especially from folks looking to downsize their collections. Usually have containers of the stuff to offload.
  4. Don’t use older or generic paints. The craftsmart paints are chunky and don’t cover or flow well over the model.
