Theatralic,

Thank you, I keep those pointy-eared trouble makers on a completely different shelf!  
Elves are bad enough, evil ones that compete for underground living space is.... insufferable.

And yes, I pray daily for the lost ones...  luckily, the powers that be, will send replacements!

Now there's a point of agreement between Dwarf Dudes & Goblin Guys; i.e, ALL Elves are EVIL!. That aside the Dwarfs of both Clans look WONDERFUL...especially in their natural surroundings. Your brushwork on Dwarf, Elf, & terrain is OUTSTANDING. VERY WELL DONE all around!

That´s just the facts:
-Dwarves have beards
-Goblins are green
-Elves are evil

...isn´t it? Did I forget something?

Full post from here:
http://mars-miniatures.blogspot.com/2015/05/bugmans-beer-cart-and-prince-ulthers.html


Morale is about to be boosted in Moria...  the beer cart has arrived!  Dwarves take their beer seriously and this shipment is guarded by none other than Prince Ulther's Imperial Dwarfs.   Hmm... maybe I should have read the fluff before assembling them.  Apparently, they are also known as the Dragon Company, but I didnt get any shields with these guys in a trade.  So, I scoured my bits box and found these lion shields that are for older Empire spearmen (5th edition box set, maybe?)  I like them, so now they are called Prince Ulther's Lion Company.  Im still missing the banner bearer, musician, and the 2nd in command figure. Im waiting for a reasonable price on ebay for those.

 


 Here they are on the road to Moria


 Bugman's Beer Cart in all its hop-tastic glory


 Possible enemy sighted, form ranks!


I think the lion shields look great on these lil fellas


 Close up view of the dwarves.  They kinda look apprehensive.  Perhaps they are not happy with their deployment orders to the dreaded Mines Of Moria.


 Another close up.  I like the helmet with the visor down.


 Prince Ulther himself, not a dwarf who should be trifled with.


 Side view of the Beer Cart.  I think I need to make some reins.


So off they go on the road to Moria...  will they make it without mishap?  Tune in next post!

Just realized its May 5th!  How appropriate that my post has a beer cart.  Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone!

Heartbreaker Dwarves - Tale Of The Evil Eye

For full post see  http://mars-miniatures.blogspot.com/2015/05/heartbreaker-dwarves-tale-of-evil-eye.html


Welcome dear readers to another episode of the Moria Reclamation Project.  In this tale of bravery and probable woe, we introduce dwarves sculpted by Kev Adams
back in the day for Heartbreaker Miniatures.  While Kev is universally known for his Orcs and Goblins, I have to say, these characterful dwarves are full of everything
that is dwarfy and good!  Pics and words follow, on to the adventure!



 Twenty doughty warriors from the Heartbreaker Clan


 The pointing fella is Prince Helfast of the Heartbreak Hills, and behind him is his perpetually pipeweed smoking counsellor, Thadar the Wise.


 The other pointy fellow here, is scout Garric the Ham-fisted.

Scout Garric:  "Prince Helfast, Moria is thataways!  The clans have taken level 1 and 2.  They report little resistance, but have sighted greenskins and night elves
watching them as they build their colony."


Prince Helfast: "Thadar, assemble the troops and prepare to march to Moria!"


Counsellor Thadar: "Time for roll call!"


Counsellor Thadar:  All right, heartbreakers, you're a team and there's nothin' to worry about. We come here, and we gonna conquer, and we gonna kick some, is that understood?


 That's what we gonna do, sweethearts, we are going to go and get some. All right, people, on the ready line! Are ya lean?


 Get on the ready line, Marines, get some today! Get on the ready line! Move it out! Move it out, goddammit! Get hot! One, two, three, four! Get out, get out, get out!
Move it out, move it out, move it out! Move it out, move it out, move it out! One, two, three, four, five, six, seven! Yeah, absolutely badass! Let's pack 'em in! Get in there!


 What's this?  Its Prince Ulther with a very precious shipment of beer.  And not just any beer, its Bugmans Beer!  The dwarves greet each other warmly!


 With such a mighty escort of warriors, surely the Beer Cart will make it to the Mines of Moria!


 But wait, what is the monstrosity ahead!  Alarms!  Fear, Fire, Foe!


 Its a Beholder!  A dreaded Eye Tyrant, an aberration from another dimension.


What happens next? Read the rest at

Kyusumu,

Thanks, buddy!  Yeah, I love that movie.  I quote it at will, and its always appropriate for any situation. 
Anytime I ask someone how long something takes, no matter what they say, I reply with:
"Seventeen days? Hey man, I don't wanna rain on your parade, but we're not gonna last seventeen hours!
Those things are gonna come in here just like they did before. And they're gonna come in here... "
