For various reasons, I’ve been putting off the creation do my hobby blog. Starting is the hardest part of commitment, as some dude who’s name I forgot said, and thus I need to post what I have so far. Note that, since my whole family are now interested in wargaming miniatures, much of my time has been preoccupied with Stormcast Eternals, Kruleboyz, and unicorns.
But not here! Here, I present my burgeoning army of all dwarves abyssal, chaotic, dastardly, evil, infernal, and other shades of not-so-nice. I’ll begin with my first shipment of Russian Alternative minis, about which I’ve been greatly excited.
As you can see, these are my first shipments of bull centaurs, blunderbusses, and great weapon wielders. I absolutely L-O-V-O the visual aesthetic of these fellows; I’ll dare to say that I think they’re an improvement over the original 4th edition versions which I was drawn to back in the mid-1990s when I discovered Warhammer. In particular, I like the fact that some of the hats have masks connected to them - both stylish and practical!
I’ll need to get bases for these fellows before I can move forward, and that’s another item still on my to-do list. My son is excited to work on these with me too, so hopefully I’ll get those bases and put these together sooner rather than later.
