@GhraskDragh This is definitely my favourite version out of all the asscannon style models. I almost didn’t include the whole crew when I couldn’t find the mortar crew at a reasonable price but I managed to pick up the one holding the ball at the last minute and added him to the base. By then I had already added the mage/assmancer as a loader in its place but I think it looks pretty cool with the four crew instead.
@Fuggit_Khan @Zanko It’s wild to me that people recognise my painting haha. Although I guess I can recognise the painting of the older members as well.
Thanks for the kind words everyone, I am glad you all enjoyed it.
Me - 16 March: This was the last large piece I needed to complete for my 3rd edition Chaos Dwarf army (unless anyone can help me source some whirlwind parts). I’ve got about six warriors left to finish before I can take some army shots
Me - 24th March
Technically these are Dwarf Empire/Imperial Dwarf miniatures (commissioned by http://whiteknightminiatureimperium.blogspot.com, now produced by Dwarf Empire Archives - The Assault Group) but @Zoddtheimmortal’s painted version caught my eye and I had to have some. As they are also sculpted by John Pickford, I thought they would fit well with the Ewal Dvergar from the OSM kickstarter. The wolf pelt sculpts fit right in as they are, but I will probably swap the heads of the boar knight sculpts for some extras from the heavy boar knights from the kickstarter when it delivers. I went for these over another pack of the bear knights with hammers because I thought some variety in the weapons would look better and the helmets on the Bear Knights II pack were a bit too dwarfy looking as well. So I’ll be adding a unit of 8 mixed pony and boar cavalry to my 3rd edition army, and most likely another 8 crossbowmen to my unit of 15, and maybe a command group to round out the numbers. Depending on how the stretch goals for the campaign go, maybe another War Machine. Speaking of…
I bought this Whirlwind a while ago but it was missing a few bits. The wheel scythes aren’t that big of a deal but the big shield hasn’t come up on eBay recently (at least one I was sure wasn’t a recast), but I found a way to make it work until I can source a proper one, and I should have a boar centaur next week. The 8 Nominus Malus were supposed to be the last of the troops. The first rank are complete apart from bases and shields. I think I will still try get an army shot after these ones are finished before the kickstarter delivers just in case it takes another few years to finish those as well. I’m getting closer to being able to get back to China, and then after that there’s a possibility I’ll be moving to the Netherlands for a few years, so I have no idea when I’ll be finished with everything now.
I’ve also been working on this scratch built juggernaut on and off for at least ten years. I was half planning on finishing it for the last GH but I burnt out after cutting all the coffee stirrers. I finally feel like I’m making progress now that I found some cannons to use and figured out how to mount them. I’m going to attempt to sculpt an approximation of the face of the original juggernaut eventually. This also makes me realise just how tiny the original juggernaut is. I’m going to give it some large jam jar lid sized wheels at the front and smaller ones at the back and fill the back with a bunch of vaporiser coils like my second boarless juggernaut. It still needs a hell of a lot of work to tidy it up, and a lot of spiky bits added, but its getting there. I’m not really counting it as part of the army as it’s probably going to be way too big and it could take another ten years to finish haha.
Here’s the last pic I took of the army, just so I’ve got it here to compare when I manage to get a new one. I’ve also bought a lightbox so I’m planning on taking better pics of the individual units. The mortar might need redoing as it was the first model I bought from the range. The base doesnt match and I stupidly painted their masks as faces. I’m determined to get an updated shot of this army this year at least. I really do need to get around to writing an army list as well. I must be way past the 4000 points mark now across the entire collection. I’ll get there slowly but surely.
I’m also tempted to find a way to include these Land Griffon’s in the army as well. Maybe leaving off the head ornaments, doing some headswaps from the Ewal Dverger and giving them a darker paint job would help them look suitably chaos dwarfy. Then I’d like to add the Vizier Tower from MOM Miniatures…this is going to be never ending…
