Dwarf Knights on Landgriffons released
It's been a long time coming, but the Landgriffon mounts for the Dwarf Knights, that I have previewed as greens, have just been released by The Assault Group in their webshop.

You can read the full announcement below, with more pics on the TAG site: http://theassaultgroup.co.uk/12624-2 :



Quote
Added to our Dwarf Empire range of white metal miniatures today are the long awaited Land Griffon mounts for our dwarf Knightly Orders.

The original Dwarf knights we inherited from the White Knight’s Miniature Imperium are mounted on very small, sweet looking armoured ponies.

These Land Griffons are a much more serious mounts. Mixing fearsome bird beaks and claws, with the hind quarters of huge wild cats.

ABOUT THE LAND GRIFFONS
There are four variants of these fabulous beasts to mount our Dwarves on. We’ll add them randomly to the 13 codes of minis, making sure that no two similar mounts go together in the packs.

We’ve chosen to paint ours as Leib Knights, on Snowy Owls/Snow leopards, but there are also Imperial knight and Boar knight regalia for the models.

The possible combinations of birds (eagles, parrots, ravens) and  big cats (lions, tigers, jaguars etc) leads to multiple  mouthwatering painting possibilities.

ABOUT THE KNIGHTS

The Knights are taken from our existing Dwarf Empire range.

Thirteen different packs of miniatures with two 28mm sized rider models in each pack.

Once again there is a huge variety of modeling possibilities, with four basic body types;

The three Knightly Orders; Imperial, Leib and Boar Knights, have five different heads and shields each…

…and are armed with two variants of lances for each of the Orders, or scythes or morningstars for Leib and Boars respectively.

There are also three Command groups representing the various Orders.

THE PAYBACK
Thanks for reading this far down the scroll, here is the payback.

We’re quite glad that we don’t have to push all these tricky pack choices through the ‘somewhat clunky’ Kickstarter system as we have done for the last few releases.

This also saves us money… and we can pass that saving on to you… so for a 10% discount on these products, use the DISCOUNT CODE given below before the end of the month (31/03/2018)

Those are really cool, I love the half-sallet idea to show the beards.

… a mixture of quick parts, sarcastic humour, reserve, and caprice.

The new additions are WONDERFUL. I LOVE The White Knight & The Queen of Hearts. They are both delightfully whimsical with an abundance of personality. The Witch Hunters are suitably grim & foreboding. All are VERY WELL DONE!

They fit in really well with the 1990s GW figs that were such a joy to paint before so many manufacturers have gone wild with CAD.

My thoughts exactly. I have a queue of orders to place, and White Knight just climbed a few places.   :)

I played Witch Hunters in Mordheim, this is making me want to coerce some people back into it :)

Thanks, gents! I'm well pleased with them.

I played Witch Hunters in Mordheim, this is making me want to coerce some people back into it :)

A small Mordheim-style warband was indeed the sort of thing I was going for.

They fit in really well with the 1990s GW figs that were such a joy to paint before so many manufacturers have gone wild with CAD.

I'm glad you feel that way, as they were intentionally made to emulate that old 90s feel, while still being their own original characters.
