Time for more dwarf-goodness. I love my dwarves, nearly as much as Tim loves his.
This is a bit of a scale comparison though that arose out of the desire to have a full 12-dwarf shooter contingent should I get round to playing Dragon Rampant at any point soon.
I’ve already got an ‘army’ but they are based around some old Pendraken 10mm dwarves which, if you’ve seen them, actually scale pretty well as normal size dwarves in true 15mm (they are about 10-12mm tall). Plenty of shooters there.
I was just scanning the Media Library and there a few pictures in there to post that didn’t really have enough clout to justify their own dedicated post so I thought I’d do a bit of a random medley just to get them online. Apart from the 15mm there is little theme going on here…
I was in one of those moods where I just fancied painting a few random miniatures and testers. I had a few barbarians to do – Copplestone, Splintered Light and TTG I think (the rubbish female – I wondered if paint would resurrect an otherwise underwhelming miniature – it didn’t).
Also pulled off the shelf were some ‘experiments’. A Reaper Bones warrior, a trio of Egyptian undead from the Age of Mythology board game and a demon from some other board game which I forget the name of at the moment (I don’t have that or AoM, figures bought as sprues). Also a repaint of a toy from my son’s more youthful days. I thought it would make an interesting creature. Remain a bit too cartoon like for my tastes though..

There is no particular reason that I can put my finger on. Dwarves are pretty cool but deep down I can’t say I’m a massive fan. But I always seem to shuffle them to the top of my painting queue. Whilst Dark elves are uber cool and Centaurs are cooler still. Dwarves? Not cool in the same way. Maybe it’s the combination of ‘some cool’ with ‘quaint’. Maybe that homeliness that makes you think that they’d be fun to sit down with and share a drink. Just avoid the short-arse jokes.
