How it began! My history with chaos dwarfs

I’ve been rather fond of chaos dwarfs for years now- ever since I was around 14 or 15 in fact. They first came to attention when I read about the creation of the black orcs somewhere.

I had a small chaos army already, so needless to say I was intrigued by the idea of dwarves venerating chaos! In my enthusiam I even lurked on the old forum for a time without creating an account regretably, as I was (and somehat still am) rather introverted. But in my discovery I was quite excited by the fact that they were still being made! -by forgeworld… and alas, I was a poor youngster who couldn’t afford it… but I didn’t let that stop me! My afformentioned lurking even inspired me to convert my own. I also used abyssal dwarves from mantic games and russian alternative. But It didn’t go well… and I abandoned the army. It didn’t suit my vision of the chaos dwarfs: plate steel and imposing iron masks (with big hats too of course).

But nonetheless, chaos dwarfs still ground away in the back of my mind. Even as I grew into my later teens and collected a sizeable force of slaves to darkness for aos. And now, 6 or 7 years later, with the rumblings of their return to aos, I too return to this army. I am now an adult and a better painter, with the financial means to finally accrue the army I dreamed about.
And I finally received my first 3 real chaos dwarf kits yesterday:
Shart’tor the executioner
Bull centaur taur’ruk
And the dreadquake mortar.

This little chorf was the first one I pulled from the bag, I was delighted to finally possess but a small handful of the models I had coveted since I was a teen!
But ultimately I decided to work on the two centaurs first, lots of filling to do- but it’ll be worth it! Cant wait to paint them and can’t wait to get more!

Thank you for reading this far, I hope to post consistently here in the coming months! Glory to Hashut!


Well met, I think you have the beginnings of a great army.
The little buggers do have a way to eat into your brain.
Once more into the breech.
Praise be Hashut!



Nice that you have found your way to us, and I am already looking forward to your minis and the colouring.

And as LoC has already said, you have a great pool of figures to start with.

I’m still looking for the FW mortar ^^ .

Wish you lots of fun here


Thank you! I’ll try to document the process as often as I can. But I can be a slow painter!


Next on the chopping block will hopefully be some infernal guard!


Nice, Proceed on.
I’m in the same boat as you. Just painted my 26th CD. After way to many years.
I have documented the process but have not posted any pictures yet.
Lets gettum done.


Can’t believe I haven’t read this before now! Belated welcome to the team, brother!
