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.
However, they do not scale so well with Demonworld or other more generously proportioned dwarves which meant I was short a few shooters. I thought I’d paint up a few of the 20mm dwarves I recently (a year ago) bought from Splintered Light. Terrific miniatures but obviously a bit larger than 15 or even 18mm.
Anyway, here is a rogues gallery and you can be your own judge as to if these fellas can stand alongside their other brethren or not.
From the scale comparison shots they are clearly ‘beefier’ in style to other dwarves on the market. I’m in a mind to class them as a new type of mountain dwarf or something – “Dwargs” or similar, where high altitude, lots of fresh air and a healthy diet of mountain goat have resulted in a genetically larger being.
The range as a whole are brilliant. The heavy crossbowmen above are probably the weakest of the bunch (and they are not weak in the slightest). I’m looking forward to painting up the rest of the Dwargs.
